DAYS 2 & 3 Mount Kenya - Samburu National Reserve (125 km - 5 hours)
Samburu National Reserve is situated on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in Kenya. This means plenty of water, trees and shade to attract wildlife like elephant, lion, giraffe and zebra from the surrounding savannah plains. Leopards are also regularly spotted. The Uaso Nyiro River's magnificent displays are the long and huge crocodiles, which exceed six meters (20 feet) from snout to tail. We will enjoy a game drive en route to our campsite.

On Day 3 we will depart on a morning game drive and return to camp for lunch. In the afternoon once the temperature cools off we head out for an afternoon game drive, returning in time to prepare dinner. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

DAYS 6 - 7 Lake Nakuru - Masai Mara National Reserve (290 km - 6 hours)
The famous Masai Mara Game Reserve is known for it's density of animals including the Big Five and 453 species of birds. It is one of the most visited reserves in Africa. This National Reserve's plains are predominantly open savannah, interspersed with patches of Acacia woodland, and along the Mara River, riparian forest. Whilst game viewing is excellent in the Mara all year round, the most popular time to visit is in late July/August where, over one million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra migrate from the Serengeti. The dramatic river crossings are a gruesome spectacle of survival of the fittest. We will set up camp here for two nights. On day 7 we enjoy a full days game drive. We enjoy our last night and dinner around the campfire, listening to the sounds of the open bush. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
