Lake Nakuru – Samburu
After breakfast depart for Samburu Game Reserve for dinner and overnight at the Lodge, via the Thompson Falls and Nanyuki town for lunch, game drive enroute. Samburu is a journey of about 220 miles north of Nairobi in Kenya’s arid, northern scrub lands. This tiny Park is only 64 square miles but in its boundaries is the best game viewing the northern part of the Country has to offer. Here you will see species you won’t see anywhere else and yes, they are uniformly beautiful. They comprise of the reticulated giraffe and the grevy’s zebra which seems to merge to a uniform grey color from a distance and is easily distinguished from its burchell’s (common) zebra cousin. One of our favorites is the gerenuk, the gracefully long-necked “giraffe” antelope, who’s perfectly capable of stretching full height on his hind legs to snatch an acacia morsel. That strikingly marked huge antelope, beisa oryx, lives here as well, as do a notable elephant herd.
Dinner and overnight is at the Lodge.
