Day 1 Nairobi – Samburu Game Reserve

At 07:30 hrs. – Your driver/guide will pick you up from your Nairobi hotel, or Nairobi airport. Then we’ll head out in our comfortable land Cruiser jeep along Kenya’s scenic highlands enjoying views of the vast landscape.

We’ll arrive at the reserve in the afternoon and tour the three parks and their varied environments.

A major landmark at the border between Samburu and Buffalo Springs is the Ewaso Ngiro River which is a lifeline for the parks’ wildlife. The best wildlife game viewing is almost always along the banks of this Ewaso Ngiro River.

Here we’ll find wildlife from the neighboring reserves gathering to drink at the river’s nourishing banks. The river is also home to hippos, crocodiles and some of the many varieties of birdlife found in the parks.

Dinner and overnight at your Samburu lodge/Samburu tented safari camp.

Day 2 Samburu National Reserve – Full Day

Our time in Kenya is just about to get better; today we’ll kick-off the new day with a game drive in search of lion, leopard, cheetah and whoever else might show up in the dawning light.

Following the path of the Ewaso Ngiro River, we’ll be on the lookout for elephant, buffalo, and some of the more entertaining wildlife like dik-dik, warthog and the olive baboon.

Samburu is also known as one of the best Kenya destinations where you can see rare wildlife creatures in a compelling and beautiful semi-arid desert landscape, also serves as the best places to see elephants. Samburu can be a really great destination for a honeymoon in Africa given its setting and the luxury lodges that are in this area.

Here too, are the Samburu people, closely related to the Maasai, an indigenous, pastoral group, who have inhabited this region for eons.

As always on our safaris, be as active as you wish or relax at your safari accommodation.

You’ll have plenty to keep watching for on the land, in the springs and overhead.

We’ll enjoy another game drive as we exit the park on our journey back to Nairobi.
