Lake Nakuru National Park

What better way to explore three of Kenya’s most magnificent landscapes than in a private 4×4 safari vehicle or Safari mini-vehicle, a truly epic ‘road-trip’ through classic savant-and-safari country.

This 5-day safari begins and ends in Nairobi, and encompasses a round trip by road through three of Kenya’s iconic and game-rich areas: Samburu, Nakuru and the Masai Mara.

Setting off on our 5-day Kenya Wildlife Safari the first stop is Samburu National Reserve in northern Kenya. Samburu has a permanent water supply resulting in spectacular bird life, including species endemic to this area of Kenya.

This region of Kenya is home to the uncommon Grevy’s zebra with huge fury ears, gerenuk antelope standing on hind legs to feed, Somali ostriches with distinct blue legs and the shy Oryx.

Elephant and crocodile are guaranteed sightings and lion, hippo and giraffe are also found in the reserve. Leopard sightings are also a special feature here. The Samburu area is also home to interesting people with a rich heritage, making for a colorful cultural experience.

Continue to Nakuru National Park home to Kenya’s largest population of rhinos (both white and black rhinos). While the full Big Five don’t call Nakuru ‘home’, four of them do. Only the elephants don’t roam here, as the park is too small to support them.

Expect to see Rothschild’s giraffes, zebra, hippo, many antelope including impala and waterbuck, plenty of baboons and monkeys, and more. This Kenyan game park has retained its reputation as an ornithologist’s delight, with more than 400 species of bird found here.

Bird species include the Great White Pelican, African Spoonbill, Yellow-billed Stork, Lesser and Greater Flamingo, and Long-crested Eagle.

Explore the Great Rift Valley before moving on to the famed Masai Mara National Reserve renowned for its location in the heart of Big 5 country. The next two days are spent embarking on exhilarating game viewing drives in Masai Mara.

Wherever you go in the Mara Reserve you will see an abundance of wildlife, such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos.

It is common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but are still reasonably common.

Then we return to bustling Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, arriving in the afternoon. This Samburu, Masai Mara & Lake Nakuru Safari ends upon arrival in Nairobi.
