Enjoy full board accommodation, that’s all meals included, at well-selected safari lodges offering top-notch accommodation inside the scenic national parks and reserves.

Beginning and ending in Nairobi, the tour travels to the Aberdare National Park; where guests enjoy game viewing from the comforts of lodge balconies and lounges then after visit 2 premier parks and game reserves of Kenya located in the north of the equator: namely Samburu Game Reserve and Meru National Park.

Day 1 of our safari begins our tour with a visit to the Aberdare National Park located 160 kilometers (99 miles) from Nairobi. The park provides a habitat for elephants, black rhinos, leopards, spotted hyenas, olive baboons, black and white colobus monkeys, buffalos, warthogs, and bushbucks among others.

Rare sightings include those of the Giant Forest hog, bongo, golden cat, serval cat, African wild cat, African civet cat, and the blue duiker. We spend a night enjoying nocturnal animal viewing at one of the two lodges in the park – Treetops and Ark. Both provide excellent game viewing at night over the watering hole.

The park is also rich in birdlife, hosting over 350 species. Samburu is one of the two areas where Elsa the lioness, of Born Free fame, was raised by George and Joy Adamson. Another highlight is encountering the traditional Samburu people, with their indigenous culture that still follows ancient practices.
