DAY 1: LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK

We shall start our safari in the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park; for a full day experience. The park is known for the mighty Lake Nakuru, a soda lake at the heart of the great ecosystem. This park is also a great sanctuary for rhinos and these may be encountered on our game drives.

The local birds make Lake Nakuru special too, and it is often referred as the birdwatcher’s paradise. Enjoy the large herds of herbivores, especially the local Cape Buffaloes among many other spectacular wildlife species. The landscapes here are very rewarding as well.

Night at Lake Nakuru.

DAY 2 AND 3: SAMBURU AND BUFFALO SPRINGS NATIONAL RESERVES

This spectacular place hosts some very unique wildlife such as the Beisa Oryx, Gerenuk, Grevy’s Zebra and Reticulated Giraffe; most of which are not easy to find south of the Equator. We shall also explore the neighbouring Buffalo Springs National Reserve. This area is home to the Samburu tribe, and the neighbouring Turkana tribe.

The mighty Ewaso Ng’iro North River meanders its way across these reserves giving life to this beautiful land. Local Doum Palms tangle their branches in the sky as if waving at the people, and provide the landscape with a beautiful touch. Enjoy time in Samburu and Buffalo Springs tracking the local elephants and other members of the Big 5 on your safari drives.

Nights in Samburu.

DAY 4: SAMBURU TO NAIROBI

On this day, we shall enjoy a morning game drive in Samburu. We shall then head to Nairobi, cruising across the beautiful countryside.

Later, we head to the airport; marking the end to our lovely safari.
