DAY 2 NAIROBI · SAMBURU


Breakfast. Drive from Nairobi to Samburu. Approximate journey time 5-6 hours. Lunch at the Trout Tree Restaurant. Enjoy a completely unique dining experience as you enter into the chasm of an enormous old fig
tree on the banks of the Burguret River. Afternoon game drive in the Shaba National Reserve situated in northern Kenya, just east of Samburu. Its vivid scenery includes riverside forests, scattered woodlands and dry
grasslands, dominated by the volcanic Shaba Hills. As the sun begins to set, the predators set out to hunt and you are sure to see a lion or two as the park is well known for its large prides. Look out for other nocturnal animals such as leopard, wild cat and aardvark, a peculiar looking creature with a long snout that burrows into the ground in search of termites and ants. This is also the best time to observe the immense flocks of helmeted and vulturine guinea fowl that make their way to the river every afternoon to drink. Visit to a traditional Samburu Village. Learn about the fascinating customs of the Samburu tribe, a proud warrior nation. During your visit you will receive unique insight into the Samburu’s ancient traditions and customs, including their homes, cooking methods and secrets to surviving in the African wilderness.

lunch in the park. Afternoon game drive through the reserve: this is one of the best times to experience its quiet peace and serenity as the late afternoon sun lights up the ruby earth to a warm, shimmering and utterly beautiful glow. Dinner at the lodge. (B/L/D)

DAY 4 SAMBURU · NAKURU


Breakfast. Drive from Samburu to the Lake area. Approximate journey time 4-5 hours. Travel to Nanyuki in the Laikipia region of Kenya.

Lunch. Afternoon game drive in Nakuru National Park. This relatively small park is dominated by Lake Nakuru that covers about a third of its surface area and is famous for the enormous flocks of pink flamingos that arrive on its shores. The area is a bird watcher’s paradise with over 400 species of birds including cormorant, fish eagle, Goliath heron and pelicans. Waterbuck, baboon, hippo and warthog are commonly spotted and the park also supports a healthy population of black and white rhino. Watch out for the lazy pythons that can often be seen taking a leisurely slither across the road in the afternoon sun. Dinner at the lodge. (B/L/D)

DAY 5 NAKURU · NAIVASHA


Safari at the beginning of the day. Breakfast. Drive through the Lake area from Nakuru to Naivasha (drive of around 1 hour). Discover Naivasha.

It is situated in the deepest part of Lake Naivasha. The shores of this beautiful piece of paradise host an abundance of bird life and have especially large numbers of pelicans, cormorant and fish eagles. While the island is secure and private it is connected to the mainland and this allows animals to roam freely. The scenic beauty and sense of freedom in this little park has seen many film makers alight on its shores to film herds of wildebeest, waterbuck and zebra passing through the grassy savannah. Dinner at the lodge. (B/L/D)

Watering holes are also usually busy just before sunset as animals such as hippos return to their resting spots while others congregate to drink before retiring for the night.
