Day 1: Nairobi-Samburu Game Reserve

Today, you will awake to the exotic birdcalls in a magical new world with the whiff of Kenyan serenity. We will meet at 7:00am for a safari briefing before we take a drive to the mystical, dry, rugged and stunning semi-desert; Samburu Game Reserve. We will arrive at camp with enough time to settle in before lunch with a little time to relax before we head out for our first game drive between 1600hrs to 1830hrs. Due to its remote distance and the fact that it was inaccessible for many years, the park has retained a naturally serene and quiet feeling. The reserve's topography is mainly open savannah (grassland) with clusters of acacia trees, forest, thorn trees and grassland vegetation and the surrounding is an area of spectacular scenery with its dry plains bisected by the meandering life lung Ewaso Nyiro River that cuts through this reserve, drawing a big population of wildlife to the park

Today we rise up early and enjoy our breakfast and by 6:30am we set out in the park in search of rare species of animals unique to the park, namely: the long necked gerenuk, Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe and Beisa onyx. Before it is hot, we return to the camp for lunch. You can opt to relax by the pool and watch when nature plays the afternoon trumpets or close your eyes and drift off into the African dreamland before we head out for our evening game drive between 1600hrs to 1830hrs.  Look out for the elusive Kenya leopard that is often known to visit the park, especially in the evenings. Other wildlife present in the park includes cheetahs and lions, as well as elephants, buffalo and hippos. Besides, the park is a bird haven and boasts over 350 different species of birds including vultures, kingfishers, marabous, bateleurs, guinea fowl, Somali ostriches and others.
