Day 1 Nairobi to Samburu National Reserve (389 km – 5 to 6 hours)
Once we’ve picked you up from the airport, your hotel, or residence, we will track north through Kenya to being your adventure across this landscape. The picturesque countryside will be a lovely introduction to the country, as you watch everyday life played out in the towns and villages that line the roads.
Upon entering Samburu, you will immediately have the opportunity to start spotting the stunning animals you have come to visit. This short game drive will take you to your accommodation in the park, and after lunch a more extensive game drive will be undertaken.
Samburu boasts riverine forests and a landscape that you won’t encounter again as you progress through your safari. This is your first chance to explore and become acquainted with the fauna of these grasslands. The evening will be spent at your camp or lodge and this is where you will take your dinner. The first day of your African safari will include:
Day 2 Full Day in Samburu National Reserve
Samburu’s landscape is dominated by the volcano of the same name that will be the backdrop to your exploration of this park. You will head out after breakfast at your accommodation, with your African safari guide on hand to help you track, spot, and identify the animals you see, including the reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra, among many others.
The neighbouring park of Shaba will also be form part of your day’s game drive, with a challenging landscape that will add to the genuine African safari experience. The rugged park, dotted with trees and characterised by rolling grasslands hosts beautiful landscapes where nature plays out her cycles.
Lunch will be served picnic style, so as to ensure you get as much of the day within the parks as possible. You will return to your accommodation for dinner and rest before the next day of your African safari. The second day of your Kenyan safari includes:
Day 3 Samburu National Reserve to Aberdares National Park (238 km – 4 to 5 hours)
Your day will start early, with a game drive through Sambruru before breakfast. You will have the chance to see the transition from darkness to daytime across the savanna, with the animals of the day awakening whilst the nocturnal creatures return to their slumber.
As you leave Samburu, you will be able to say a farewell to the reserve as you take a game drive towards the exit. You will arrive at Aberdares National Park in time for lunch which is preceded by another game drive.
Your afternoon will consist of a trip across the park to The Ark. The decks and balconies of this place overlook a watering hole and salt lick, so there is plenty of wildlife to watch. There are over 250 bird species in this park, many of them on display here, along with elephant, hippos, waterbuck, and plenty more.

Day 4 Aberdare National Park to Lake Nakuru National Park (128 km – 3 to 4 hours)
Another early start will once again afford your chance to hear the dawn chorus as day breaks over the plains of Africa and awakens the animals. This is a calm et active part of the day, with the hunters setting out early and the grazers readying to eat through the day.
After breakfast, you will head out through the Great African Rift Valley and make your way to Lake Nakuru National Park. Here, you have high chances of seeing both white and black rhinos; both critically endangered yet making their homes and continuing their species’ legacy right here in the park.
An afternoon game drive will also take in the lake this park is named for. Massive flocks of flamingos feed and nest here, they arrive in such numbers that the water becomes obscured by the shades of pink and magenta of the animals displaying across the water.
