ARRIVE IN NAIROBI, KENYA

Nairobi, Kenya

Welcome to Africa! Arrive this evening, check in to your hotel, and prepare for your safari adventure!

NAIROBI SERENA HOTEL

NAIROBI–MOUNT KENYA–SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE

Mount Kenya Safari Club, Kenya

Today, depart Nairobi to begin your search for the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. First, stop at the famed Mount Kenya Safari Club for lunch and stunning views of Mount Kenya

Samburu, Kenya

After lunch, continue to Samburu National Reserve, known for its arid landscape and unique wildlife. Due to the dry climate, grasses are sparse, making animals easier to spot. Meanwhile, the Ewaso Ng’iro River, which borders the reserve, provides a year-round water supply. These two factors make for a great game-viewing experience. During your afternoon game drive, you have the chance to see rare animals you will not see in other parts of the country. Commonly referred to as the Samburu “Special 5,” this includes Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, beisa oryx, and the gerenuk, a long-necked antelope that feeds while standing on its hind feet.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

SAROVA SHABA GAME LODGE

SAMBURU

Samburu, Kenya

Today, enjoy morning & afternoon game drives. In addition to the Samburu “Special 5,” the reserve is home to an abundance of other species. Large numbers of elephant and Nile crocodile can be seen, as well as waterbuck, Kirk’s dik-dik, and Grant’s gazelle. Where there is prey, predators can be found, so lion and leopard are often spotted. The reserve is also a great place for bird watching, with over 300 species. Between game drives, there’s time to relax at your lodge.

LAKE NAKURU–MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

Maasai Mara, Kenya

This morning, depart for Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya’s most famous game area. The “Mara,” as it is called by locals, is part of the Serengeti ecosystem and boasts a strong permanent population of game. When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra arrives, generally from August to early November, the population enlarges by almost 2 million. This provides a great food source for predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena.

After lunch at your lodge, set out on an afternoon game drive. As the sun sets, savor sundowner drinks and watch a traditional Maasai dance performance.

NOTE: The Great Migration is a natural event, and the arrival/departure of the migrating herds varies slightly year to year.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

MAASAI MARA

Maasai Mara, Kenya

Rise early for a morning game drive. Be sure to watch for elephant, rhino, giraffe, topi, hyena, and much more. Afterward, a special bush breakfast has been arranged for you. Sip on a mimosa as you savor every moment of the memorable experience! Return to your camp and relax prior to your afternoon game drive.
