1 AND 2
We leave Nairobi for Samburu National Reserve
at 0900 hrs. This park is situated within the
lands of the colorful Samburu people, close relatives
of the Maasai people.
A picnic lunch will be served on the way and
we shall arrive in time for an evening game drive.
The park harbors a number of wildlife species
rarely found elsewhere in any large numbers.
These include the Grevy's gazelle, the reticulated
giraffe and the Beisia orynx, all species only
found north of the equator.
The Ewaso Ngiro river which rises some hundreds
of kilometers to the west is fringed with giant
acacias and offers shade and sustenance to wildlife
that comes to the river.
Elephants find solace and contentment from the
river and can be found bathing and drinking in
a spectacle of unconscious pleasure.
The second day will be spent game viewing in
All meals and overnight at the Park.
We shall leave the park and drive to the Aberdare,
where we will spend the night in one of the luxurious
tree Hotels situated in the lush forests of Mt.
Kenya and Aberdare. The Tree hotels overlook a
waterhole that becomes somewhat busy as the sun
sets as the animals come to quench their thirst
after a long day.
DAY 4 AND 5
We shall leave the Aberdares or the Mt. Kenya
region and head to the Amboseli National park.
This lies at the foot of the majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro,
Africa's highest mountain. The snow capped peak
of Mt. Kilimanjaro rising above a saucer of clouds
dominates every aspect of the Amboseli.
The snows of the Mt. Kilimanjaro, white and crystalline
form a majestic backdrop to one of Kenya's most
spectacular display of wildlife-lion, elephant,
leopard, rhino, cheetah, buffalo and hosts of
plain's game creating Kenya's most sought after
The park is also the home of maasai, those tall
proud nomads who have learned to live in complete
harmony with the wildlife that surrounds them.
The next day will be spent game viewing around
DAY 6 AND 7
Leave Amboseli for Tsavo National Park. The combined
area of Tsavo East and West makes it one of the
World's largest game sanctuaries, even larger
than the Wales in Great Britain.
We shall arrive in Tsavo West in time for an
evening game drive. Chief amongst the marvels
of this park is the Mzima Springs which forms
a haven for rich wildlife pageant with the elephant
soaking half immersed in the waters, the hippos
apparently weightless, tiptoeing across the bottom,
crocodiles basking at the bank or swirling through
the water, gazelles, zebra and giraffe wandering
around the banks through the thick acacias and
raffia palms together with hundreds of chattering
monkeys and birds.
Apart from the elephant population that also
graces the park, there are many lions, some undoubtedly
the descendants of the famous man eaters of Tsavo.
Dinner and overnight stay at the Park.
We shall spend the early part of the day experiencing
some more of the Tsavo marvels and then leave
for Nairobi where you will be dropped at your
