Itinerary in Detail

Day 1: Nairobi – Drive to Samburu National Reserve

Breakfast will be served at the city hotel followed by a safari briefing on the adventures ahead. After the briefing, your safari adventure will start immediately after you board the safari vehicle.

The region is characterized by vast, open landscapes, dried riverbeds (depending on the season of the year) and red volcanic soil. Rock outcroppings contrast against the dense woodland vegetation along the banks of Ewaso Nyiro meaning ‘River of brown water’, the river that gives life to the reserve.

The area is home to the famous Samburu people related “cousins” to the Maasai people who have retained their cultural tradition.
