Samburu National Reserve

This 6-day road safari visits Kenya’s prime game-viewing parks of Samburu, Aberdare and Amboseli, staying intimate camps and lodges.  After meeting your guide in Nairobi, you begin straight away at Samburu National Reserve in northern Kenya.

Samburu is home to all the big cats, it’s especially good for leopard as well as providing a haven for super-rare wild dogs and large numbers of elephants.

The 450 bird species will delight birders while it’s also the best destination for wildlife enthusiasts who want to see unusual animals that don’t occur in Kenya’s more well-known reserves. Top of the list are the ‘Samburu Big 5’ – Grevy’s zebra; the long-necked gerenuk; reticulated giraffe; besia oryx; and Somali ostrich.

Then it is on to the Aberdare National Park in Kenya’s Central Highlands. Aberdare is one of the more scenic and tropical parks, and home to the Big 5, as well as some rare forest-dwelling game like the shy bongo antelope that looks a little like a reddish kudu and lives in the bamboo forests.

Other animals include the Colobus monkey, golden cat, giant forest hog and leopard. The area also has a respectable birding list at over 250 species. Accommodation here is at the Ark Lodge or the Treetops lodge where you can watch the animals that frequently visit the lively waterhole beside the lodge, from a series of viewing decks and areas at different levels.

Spotting animals at the floodlit saltlick and watering hole into the night, with common visitors including elephants, buffalo’s, rhinos and even leopards.

Finally we visit Amboseli National Park which not only offers great game viewing but is also the place to go for the best views of iconic Mount Kilimanjaro. The world’s tallest free-standing mountain actually rises just across the border in Tanzania.

The swamps in Amboseli support a rich diversity of wildlife and most of the classic big mammals are there. The species list includes lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, spotted hyena, giraffe and cheetah, and bird watchers will be happy with a list that tops 300 species.

An optional visit to a Masai village is available as this is the also the home of the Masai people. Here you learn about their tribal social systems, customs, and the place of the Masai in today’s Africa.

After 2 nights in Amboseli we drive back through rural Kenya to the capital city, Nairobi. Upon arrival in Nairobi, you can be transferred to the international airport or to your residence.

Amboseli is famous for close encounters with big herds of elephants. The game park is a photographer’s paradise combining close range wildlife sightings with the scenic landscapes, featuring the towering Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest mountain.

The vegetation of the park varies seasonally with green swamps in rainy times and arid bush in dry periods, both well-suited to game viewing. Sightings include the big cats of Africa, as well as the Big Five of Africa.
