This safari will show you the strange and out-of-the-ordinary species of northern Kenya. It’s designed for the person who is not just after the cats and the Great Migration, but loves remote areas and landscape, and wants to see new species and places that are off-the-beaten track. Apart from Samburu’s Special Five – reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, Somali ostrich and beisa oryx – you have good chances of seeing the big five and Interacting with the Unique Samburu Community.

Day 1
Nairobi-Samburu

Pick up from your Nairobi Hotel at 0700 Hours and depart by road driving north crossing the equator from the Southern to the Northern hemisphere to Samburu Game Reserve a semi arid region excellent for photographers.

Arrive at the camp in time for lunch followed by some leisure hours for a siesta/swim before you depart at around 1600hrs for an afternoon game viewing and return back to the camp before sunset.

Samburu is a name of Masai origin ‘Samburr’ being a traditional leather bag for carrying honey and milk. 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.

Dinner and overnight at Samburu Sopa Lodge (Full Board)

Day 2
Full Day Samburu

This full day in the Samburu Game Reserve will be spend searching for the big five, the Samburu five and observing the vast unspoiled scenery during morning and afternoon game viewing drive, watching crocodiles bask on muddy riverbanks and velvet monkeys frolic in the late afternoon sun.

These five particular animals are usually only found north of the equator – the long necked gerenuk, the reticulated giraffe which is characterized by its liver-colored geometric patches defined by narrow white lines, the Grevy’s zebra which is smaller than the common zebra and looks more like a horse, the beisa oryx with black horizontal stripe running across its lower flank and the Somali ostrich males which have blue-grey necks and thighs.
