Nairobi – Lake Nakuru
The adventure starts with a pick up from your Nairobi Hotel at 0800hrs then depart for Nakuru, stopping at the Rift Valley Viewpoint arriving in time for lunch. After lunch proceed for a game-drive within Lake Nakuru National Park to view flamingos, other water birds and various species of plains game with excellent chances for spotting the white rhino as the Park contains a Sanctuary for the Conservation of this rare animal which is an endangered species. Dinner and overnight is at the Campsite/Budget Hotel.
Lake Nakuru – Samburu
After breakfast depart for Samburu Game Reserve for dinner and overnight at the Campsite, 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 Campsite.
Breakfast is followed by morning and afternoon game drives in Samburu with a lunch and leisure break at the Campsite. Samburu is north of the equator with most of the rare species of game here being drought resistant and can which go for long periods of time without water. It is also the home of the blue-shanked Somali ostrich among others. In the late afternoon (at an extra cost), go for optional activities like having a nature walk, visiting Samburu villages to see the nomadic lifestyle or swimming in the nearby lodges. Rest of meals and overnight is at a the campsite.
