Holiday Itinerary - Kenya: A Classic Safari

Day 1: Arrive in Nairobi, Kenya.

Welcome to Africa! Arrive this evening, check in to your hotel, and prepare for your safari adventure!

Day 2: Nairobi - Mount Kenya - Samburu National Reserve.

Today, depart Nairobi to begin your search for the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. First, stop at the famed Mount Kenya Safari Club for lunch and stunning views of Mount Kenya. After lunch, continue to SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE, known for its arid landscape and unique wildlife. Due to the dry climate, grasses are sparse, making animals easier to spot. Meanwhile, the Ewaso Ng’iro River, which borders the reserve, provides a year-round water supply. These two factors make for a great game-viewing experience. During your AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE, you have the chance to see rare animals you will not see in other parts of the country. Commonly referred to as the Samburu “Special 5,” this includes Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, beisa oryx, and the gerenuk, a longnecked antelope that feeds while standing on its hind feet. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Samburu.

Today, enjoy MORNING and AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. In addition to the Samburu “Special 5,” the reserve is home to an abundance of other species. Large numbers of elephant and Nile crocodile can be seen, as well as waterbuck, Kirk’s dik-dik, and Grant’s gazelle. Where there is prey, predators can be found, so lion and leopard are often spotted. The reserve is also a great place for bird watching, with over 300 species. Between game drives, there’s time to relax at your lodge. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Samburu - Ol Pejeta Conservancy.

After breakfast, travel to OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY, the largest black rhino sanctuary in all of East Africa. After lunch, enjoy a GAME DRIVE in the conservancy, including a stop at the CHIMP SANCTUARY. In partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Jane Goodall Institute, the sanctuary was established to provide a long-term home for orphaned and abused chimpanzees. Here, see the chimps and learn more about their plight. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today, embark on MORNING and AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. The park is home to a variety of animals including giraffe, impala, Cape buffalo, flamingo, and striped hyena.
