DAY 1: ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK – MT. KENYA REGION

We shall enjoy game drives in the amazing Aberdare National Park. This Park runs the expanse of a majestic mountain range on the eastern edge of the Rift Valley. The park has a great stretch of alpine moorland vegetation, mainly above 3,000m. This great landscape has led to the park’s nick-name:- “The Majestic Moorland”.

There is a thick tropical forest, with deep ravines and dissecting riverine gorges. At certain areas, these rivers form majestic waterfalls, which leave a sight to be desired. Many animals occupy this beautiful place and species of mammals such as African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Bush Duiker, Common Bushbuck and Giant Forest Hog can be expected.

Night at Aberdares.

DAY 2: OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY AND SWEETWATERS CHIMPANZEE SANCTUARY

We shall enjoy beautiful game drives at East Africa’s largest Black Rhino sanctuary. We shall be keeping an eye for mammals such as Cape Buffalo, Grevy’s Zebra, Savannah Elephant, Spotted Hyena, Beisa Oryx, African Wild Dog, Jackson’s Hartebeest, Black Rhino, White Rhino, African Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. Birds here include the Grey Crowned Crane and White-bellied Bustard.

We shall also enjoy time at the Chimpanzees Sanctuary, which is the only place to see these Great Apes in Kenya- a key highlight on our safari. At Ol Pejeta, you will have a chance to alight on foot and take a selfie with the famous Equator line sign; and sometimes on clear days Mt. Kenya is visible behind you. Another top highlight of Ol Pejeta Conservancy is the Northern White Rhinos Sanctuary- there are only two individuals left on Earth; and both are hosted at Ol Pejeta.

Night at Ol Pejeta.

DAY 3 AND 4: 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 5: 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.
