1 AND 2
We leave Nairobi for Samburu National Reserve
at 0900 hrs. This park is situated within the
lands of the colourful Samburu people, close relatives
of the Maasai people.
A picnic lunch will be served on the way and
we shall arrive in time for an evening game drive.
The park harbors a number of wildlife species
rarely found elsewhere in any large numbers.
These include the Grevy's zebra, the reticulated
giraffe and the Beisic orynx, all species only
found north of the equator.
The Ewaso Ngiro river which rises some hundreds
of kilometers to the west is fringed with giant
acacias and offers shade and sustenance to wildlife
that comes to the river.
Elephants find solace and contentment from the
river and can be found bathing and drinking in
a spectacle of unconscious pleasure.
The next day will be spent game viewing in the
All meals and overnight
We shall leave the park and drive to the Aberdare,
where we will spend the night in one of the luxurious
tree Hotels situated in the lush forests of Mt.
Kenya and Aberdare.
The Tree hotels overlook a waterhole that becomes
somewhat busy as the sun sets as the animals come
to quench their thirst after a long day.
DAY 4 AND 5
We shall leave the Aberdares and drive to Lake
Nakuru National Park. We shall stop for a picnic
lunch on the way. Lake Nakuru , quite often referred
to as the "pink lake" is world famous
as the location of the greatest bird spectacle
on earth - myriad of fuschia pink flamingos whose
numbers are legion often more than a million maybe
The lake is also rich in other bird life the
most popular being the two fish eating birds,
pelicans and cormorants. There are over 400 resident
species on the lake.
We shall spend the night in one of the lodges
located near the park. The next day will start
with a morning game drive followed by an optional
nature walk in the afternoon.
We will then leave the park and drive to the
Amboseli National Park where we will spend the
DAY 6 AND 7
We shall start the day by game viewing around
this Park. It lies at the foot of the majestic
Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain.
The snow capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro rising
above a saucer of clouds dominates every aspect
of the Amboseli.
The snows of the Mt. Kilimanjaro, white and crystalline
form a majestic backdrop to one of Kenya's most
spectacular display of wildlife-lion, elephant,
leopard, rhino, cheetah, buffalo and hosts of
plain's game creating Kenya's most sought after
The park is also the home of maasai, those tall
proud nomads who have learned to live in complete
harmony with the wildlife that surrounds them.
The next day will also be spent game viewing around
DAY 8 and 9
We shall leave the Amboseli National Park and
drive to the Tsavo National Park.
The combined area of Tsavo East and West makes
it one of the World's largest game sanctuaries,
even larger than the Wales in Great Britain. We
shall arrive in Tsavo West in time for an evening
Chief amongst the marvels of this park is the
Mzima Springs which forms a haven for rich wildlife
pageant with the elephant soaking half immersed
in the waters, the hippos apparently weightless,
tiptoeing across the bottom, crocodiles basking
at the bank or swirling through the water, gazelles,
zebra and giraffe wandering around the banks through
the thick acacias and raffia palms together with
hundreds of chattering monkeys and birds.
Apart from the elephant population that also
graces the park, there are many lions, some undoubtedly
the descendants of the famous man eaters of Tsavo.
Dinner and overnight.
We shall spend the next day game viewing in Tsavo
West and then leave for Tsavo East. One of the
main attractions of Tsavo East is the Yatta Plateau,
one of the world's longest lava flows.
An additional attraction is the Athi river flanked
by the stately doum palms, which later forms the
Lugard Falls, a long stretch of rippling white
water cataracts and a favorite spot for sunbathing
We shall spend the morning experiencing some more
of the Tsavo marvels and then leave for Nairobi
where you will be dropped of at your respective
