This magnificent area has one of the richest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, with many game animals migrating across the plains. During your afternoon game drive, you’ll come eyeball close to lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, leopard and a myriad of exotic birds. 

The magnificent lands of the nomadic Masai people will stand out today as a highlight of the safari.

After a memorable experience we depart north through fertile Kikuyu Country, to Samburu Game Reserve in Northern Kenya.  Keep an eye out for impala, gazelles and elephant as you enter the reserve at Isiolo. Experience a game drive in the afternoon when animals are most active and the light is best for photography. Samburu Game Reserve is famous for its rare species of Grevy's zebras, the tiny dik-dik, oryx, long-necked gerenuk antelopes, liver-red reticulated giraffe, and the Somali ostrich. You might also see giant crocodiles and leopards.  Dinner and overnight at the riverside setting of Samburu Game Lodge.


Morning and afternoon game drives in Samburu Game Reserve.  This is an exceptional location for rare birds and you may easily be able to observe over one hundred species in a single day!  Here you have magnificent views across the plains to the great table-mountain called Lolokwe.  In the afternoon relax and watch the life along the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River as animals make their way down to drink.  The river provides pools for the large Marabou Stork and sand spits for basking crocodiles.  Overnight Samburu Game Lodge.
