This remote and dramatic Samburu Game Reserve stands as one of the most beautiful Kenya Parks in Northern Circuit. It is home to several unique species; Reticulated giraffe,  Somali ostrich, Gerenuk, Beisa Oryx, and the Grevy’s zebra.

Safari Itinerary in Detail

Day 1: Nairobi – Drive to Samburu Game Reserve

After breakfast, depart for Samburu National Park, crossing the thorny landscape of Samburu County. The semi-arid region is excellent for photography.

It is also one of Kenya’s most protected areas and home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to Grevy’s zebras and Beisa Oryxes.

Day 2: Explore Samburu National Park

Dawn breaks in golden bands as we start our day in the bush by scanning the river from our tent’s veranda with a cup of steaming coffee in hand.

Before the dew is off the grass, we’re off in pursuit of the elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetahs that thrive in the reserve’s grasslands and acacia woodlands.

The reserves have numerous permanent springs and a wealth of wildlife which includes leopard, hippo, elephant, lion, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, and crocodile in the Ewaso Nyiro River.

Over 365 species of birds have been identified in the sanctuaries. And so the day is spent in alternating pursuits of exploration in the bush and relaxation in our cozy camp.

Today we travel to the exotic Sweetwaters Tented Camp or Porini Rhino Camp in the secluded heart of Ol Pejeta Ranch and Rhino Reserve.

Here, these magnificent beasts are given sanctuary from those who would take their lives to sell their horns.

Here too, the Jane Goodall Institute operates a remarkable Chimpanzee Sanctuary where we meet the primates face-to-face. Our camp also overlooks one of the busiest waterholes in the area and offers elephant, giraffe, and myriad plains game.

This is Africa as Teddy Roosevelt saw it years ago when he led one of the first safaris to tour Africa in comfort and splendor. Our tents at Sweetwaters or Porini Rhino Camp will remind us of this bygone era.

Day 7 & 8: Explore Masai Mara Game Reserve 

The fertile Mara plains support a huge amount of plain games and their predators abound – a wildlife spectacle unrivaled anywhere else in the world.

It’s home to the big five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard as well as cheetah, zebra, giraffe, and vast herds of games.

The search for great predators and perhaps even cubs continues today and tomorrow during extensive game runs. On the plains are enormous herds of grazing animals plus the elusive cheetah and leopard hiding amidst acacia boughs.

During our stay, we also have an optional opportunity to visit a village of the Masai people to witness the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals.

A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience.
