Day by Day

7 Day Safari Experience

Today you will be picked up from your hotel in Nairobi by one of our safari representatives, who will give a briefing on your upcoming safari. After the briefing you will head north through an agricultural region that is rich with coffee, wheat and various other crops. You will cross the equator at Nanyuki and continue north before descending from the cool highlands into the wildlife rich savanna woodlands. Arrive at Samburu National Reserve in time for lunch and an afternoon game drive. The Samburu is possibly one of the most scenic and wildest safari parks in Africa. Situated alongside the Ewaso Nyiro River, there is plenty here to attract animals from the surrounding savanna plains. The reserve is home to an abundance of rare northern species such as the Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and the beisa oryx (also referred to as the “Samburu Special Five") as well as all the main predators.

To make the most of the gorgeous "first light" we'll have early morning breakfast and checkout, we depart for another game drive in Lake Nakuru national park.. We'll then drive south to Lake Naivasha for an exciting boat safari on freshwater Lake Naivasha, a primary drinking spot for buffalos, zebras, elands, impalas and waterbucks. Also a favourite cool-down area for hippos. Our boatmen are skilled and very experienced at reading hippo behaviour so they will get us close enough to take amazing photos of huge hippos without endangering us or the animals. Thereafter we'll embark on our 4-hour scenic drive to the world famous Maasai Mara, arriving at our wonderful Lodge in time for lunch. After a well-deserved rest, we will head into the Maasai Mara for a late afternoon and sunset game drive.

After breakfast, we have a full day game drive, with packed lunches provided. The reserve is well known for its black-manned lion, as well as its abundant resident wildlife and its one of the few places where it's possible to see the big five during a morning's game drive. Many of the cheetahs are so tame they seek shelter from the hot sun under one's vehicle and several even climb onto the roof to get a better view of prospective prey. For the bird enthusiast, almost 500 species have been recorded: among these 16 species of eagle, plus many hawks and falcons, 6 species of vultures, 8 species of storks 4 of bustard (including the Kori bustard, the world's heaviest flying bird), and 9 species of sunbirds.Dinner and overnight at Oldarpoi Mara Camp.
