DAY 01

It is ‘touch down’ at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Representatives of Zoar Tours, your hosts in Kenya eagerly await your arrival. Welcome to Nairobi, a city experiencing a Renaissance in art and culture. Our airport representative meets you at the airport and whisks you to Fairview Hotel.  Following an evening arrival, we settle happily into the city's Fairview Hotel. The Fairview is that rare bird in Africa a comfortable hotel that hasn’t decked itself out in feathers of up market gloss and tasteless luxury. The hotel’s leafy acres and scattered buildings are laid out on Nairobi Hill, a world away from the overheated bustle. All this, plus a classy brasserie and wine bar and some of the best sushi in the city. The balance of the day is to relax and enjoy the surroundings. A safari briefing answers questions and creates excitement. This safari offers a unique opportunity to combine a wilderness adventure covering a wide range of landscapes; it offers the excitement and glamour of the African bush together with a romantic, and self indulgent itinerary. The lodges and camps chosen are flawless, with very pleasant staff and superb accommodation. Marvel at the vivid array of wildlife and rich diverse landscapes and experience the friendliness and in-depth knowledge of our Drivers and Guides. A sound rest tonight prepares us for tomorrow's adventures. 

DAY 02

After breakfast, drive further north towards the highlands. Driving north we pass Mount Kenya, Africa's second highest mountain at 17,000 feet (5,199 metres). The massive size of this mountain and its gleaming and eroded snow-covered multiple peaks means that Mount Kenya dominates the surrounding countryside and even affects the local climate. The terrain makes a dramatic descent from the lush central highlands to the low semi-arid plains of Kenya’s Northern Frontier District. You arrive in time for lunch at your lodge in the Samburu Sopa Lodge. This afternoon you'll have a game drive to view unusual species rarely seen outside of this region. Grevy’s zebra with its distinctive narrow striped, Reticulated giraffe with its geometric pattern, the shy long-necked Gerenuk which stands erect on its hind legs to feed on the tender leaves of the high tree branches, and the Blue-necked Somali ostrich, among a variety of others. The land of rocky soil and scrubland, Bird enthusiasts will be rewarded with a wealth of species attracted to the palm tree-lined permanent waters of the river. We cross the Equator into the northern hemisphere on our way to Samburu Game Reserve in a semi-desert area of Kenya. Samburu is located on the Ewaso Nyiro River. In this dry land the forested riverbanks are excellent areas to see wildlife, as all animals congregate here to drink, especially at dusk and early in the morning. We'll eagerly search for leopards lounging high on tree limbs. There will be time to relax by the pool in between game drives. 

DAY 03

Your schedule for today includes an early morning and late afternoon game drives. Travelling through the landscape which is rugged and dramatic - against a backdrop of volcanic mountains, gaunt hills and withered scrub tree punctuate the sparse and dry terrain with clusters of the incredibly hardy desert rose providing the occasional flash of vivid color. Photographers will appreciate the dramatic backdrop of Ololokwe Mountain Ololokwe Table Mountain forms a dramatic backdrop to our game viewing today. The Ewaso Nyiro River, lifeline of the area, runs along the southern boundary dividing Samburu from Buffalo Springs Reserve. Crocodile and hippo share the river with the many small herds of elephant which bathe and frolic in the muddy brown waters during the heat of the day before returning later to browse on the lush vegetation of the riverine forest. Buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and plains game may also be seen but a special feature of this Reserve. Over 50 species of large mammals including reticulated giraffe, grevys zebra, Beisa Oryx, Somali ostrich, hippo, crocodiles, gerenuk, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and hyena. Large flocks of helmeted and vulturine guinea fowls are a common attraction.

DAY 04

In Samburu we are sure to see elephants, warthogs and buffalo, which can be seen in many of Kenya's parks, but we should also see animals not found in other areas. These include the Grevy's Zebra, which has much narrower and more numerous stripes than the common (Burchell's) zebra. Samburu is also home to the third of Kenya's giraffe species - the Reticulated Giraffe. This is also our best chance to see the blue-legged Somali Ostrich, the long-necked Gerenuk gazelle and the straight-horned Beisa Oryx antelope. Down by the river we hope to see crocodiles and hippos, as well as many beautiful birds. Wild and rugged, Samburu is fiercely beautiful with arid savannahs watered by the lovely Uaso Nyiro River. It is also one of Kenya’s most protected areas and home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to Grevy’s zebras and beisa oryxes. On your game drives, we pursue the elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetahs that thrive in the reserve’s grasslands and acacia woodlands. Here you will also enjoy Larsens Tented Camp, your luxurious hostelry set beneath a canopy of acacia trees along the banks of the river.

DAY 05

After breakfast, say 'Kwaheri' - a Swahili word for bye to Samburu and leisurely drive back to Nairobi,you will drive to the famous Carnivore Restaurant for Dinner. The Carnivore is considered ‘Africa's Greatest Eating Experience. A variety of meats including a selection of exotic meat is roasted over charcoal and carved at your table on traditional Maasai swords (skewers). Delicious side dishes and an exceptional array of sauces complement this fixed price feast that also includes soup, a selection of desserts and Kenyan coffee. Set in attractive tropical gardens, the service and the décor are outstanding. After dinner transfer to the airport for your International flight home.
