Your 7 Days Mara-Nakuru and Samburu

The Mara’s landscape is scenic savannah grassland on rolling hills, which enables the reserve to attract sufficient rainfall to maintain and support large population of herbivores, together with the predators that follow. Elephant, lion, buffalo can be seen with relative ease though luck is a necessary factor for spotting rhino and leopard that complete the big five as the two animals are very timid and sparsely numbered. Plains game like wildebeest, zebra and Masai giraffe abound as well as a wide variety of antelopes including impala, dik-dik, hartebeest, Grant’s gazelle and Thompson’s gazelle among others. We will cater for a picnic lunch at the hippo pool. In the evening, return to the lodge/campsite for dinner and an overnight stay.

DAY 1: Nairobi – Masai Mara:After breakfast, we will pick you up from your Nairobi hotel and thereafter depart for Masai Game Reserve via the viewpoint of the Great Rift Valley, lunch en-route. Arrive in time for an evening game drive in this pristine, unequaled ‘big game country’.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge campsite.

DAY 2: Masai Mara:This will be a day tracking game with  your guide, after an early breakfast.

DAY 4: Masai Mara – Nakuru:After breakfast, leave Masai Mara for Nakuru with a stop for lunch en-route, with scenic views of Lake Naivasha and Mt. Longonot, which are in the Great Rift from afar on the main highway.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge/campsite.

DAY 5: Lake Nakuru – Samburu:After breakfast a morning game drive will follow in Lake Nakuru National Park, the abode of various water birds that breed in the lake’s salty water including flamingos, white pelicans and marabou stork; white rhino may be seen as well as the rare Rothschild’s giraffe, Cape buffalo and other plains game in this park that is 1888 square kilometers. Depart for Samburu Game Reserve for dinner and overnight at the lodge / campsite via the Thompson Falls, which are named after Joseph Thompson, one of the first European explorers who walked from Mombasa to Lake Victoria in the 18880’s.
Lunch and game drive en-route.

DAY 6: Samburu:Morning and afternoon game viewing sessions tracking the rare, drought resistant animals species which can only be seen north of the equator; these are: the reticulated giraffe, gravy’s Zebra, the gerenuk or blue shacked Somali ostrich. The Ewaso Nyiro River traverses this park, it’s source being the Aberdare ranges. There are therefore very high chances of spotting crocodile in a nature environment though its water level varies seasonally. You will have a lunch and leisure break in the mid afternoon. Rest of meals and overnight at a lodge/campsite.

Day 7: Samburu – Nairobi:After breakfast, depart Samburu for Nairobi, lunch en-route, with scenic views of Mt. Kenya’s peak if the weather permits. Very pleasant countryside with tea and coffee plantations will be by-passed en-route to Nairobi. Arrive in the evening.
