TREE LODGE-SAMBURU-L. BARINGO-L. NAKURU-MASAI MARA

Day 1: 
Drive through lush coffee and tea plantations towards the Mt Kenya region. Lunch will be at a base hotel from where you will be transferred to your tree lodge. Enjoy the unique experience of all night and unlimited game viewing. Dinner and overnight at a tree lodge surrounded by forest and overlooking an illuminated waterhole and salt lick.

 

Day 2: 
After breakfast, transfer to base hotel for onward journey to Samburu. After lunch, a game drive to sight the resident wildlife species like the Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy's Zebra, Beisa Oryx and the blue-necked Somali Ostrich that are rare elsewhere in the country. Dinner and the night will be spent along the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River at one of the luxurious Samburu Lodges.

 

Day 3: 
Enjoy two extensive game drives today. Explore and traverse over some of the world's most spectacular and exciting terrain. Overnight and meals at the lodge.

 

Day 4: 
After breakfast, depart for L Baringo. L Baringo, a fresh water lake in the Rift, is a 
peaceful oasis in the dry thorn country, bursting with birdlife and with a captivating characteristic of its own. L Baringo possesses two major ornithological attractions: the Gibraltar Island with the largest nesting colony of Goliath Herons in East Africa and the escarpment immediately west of Campi ya Samaki on the western side of the lake. It is the home of Verreaux's Eagle, rare Bristle crowned Starling and Hemprich's Hornbill. Apart from birds, the lake houses a sizeable population of crocodile's and hippos. Meals and overnight at a spectacular lodge/tented camp situated by the lake.

 

Day 5: 
After breakfast, depart for Nakuru. Arrive in time for lunch. Enjoy an afternoon game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park. The park provides a sanctuary for the rhino. Lake Nakuru has always been considered a flamingo lake par excellence. The contrast and apparent dislocation between the shallow soda lake with its primeval birds and the animated woods all around it give Lake Nakuru National Park a very distinctive appeal. Dinner and overnight at a lodge overlooking the lake.

 

Day 6: 
After breakfast, depart for Masai Mara - the land of vast migrating herds. Arrive in time for lunch. In the afternoon, embark on a game drive to get a closer look at the Mara. Return to an archetypal Mara lodge/tented camp for sundowners, dinner and overnight stay.

 

Day 7: 
Awaken to the sounds of the big game country and venture out to absorb the enormity of the Mara. In this country of breathtaking vistas, view its vast assemblages of plains game together with their associated predators: Buffalo, Black Rhino, Hippopotamus, Leopard, Cheetah, Common Zebra, Coke's Hartebeest, White bearded Gnu, Oribi, Warthog, and Thompson's and Grant's Gazelles. All meals and overnight stay at the lodge/tented camp.

 

Day 8: 
After breakfast, return to Nairobi.
