This 8-day tour combines three major tourist destinations in Kenya and exclusive accommodations, resulting in one great adventure safari.
Your journey in East Africa begins with an overnight stay in the capital city of Nairobi, known for top tourist attractions such as Nairobi National Park, the Giraffe Centre, and the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant and Rhino Orphanage. It is also the gateway city to the premier game reserves you are about to encounter with the convenient location of Ole-Sereni Airport Hotel ensuring seamless travel.
Your safari adventure begins in the unfenced Samburu National Reserve - a pristine 200 000 acre open savannah wilderness located in the Rift Valley of Kenya. Over the course of three days, you will discover the wildlife that is unique to this lesser-visited region, including Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx, and the long-necked gerenuk. Offering an exclusive safari experience is the intimate Saruni Samburu Safari Lodge with only six luxurious private villas and the unique opportunity to interact with Samburu warriors who happily teach you about their fascinating way of life.
Your adventure continues as you enter the Mara North Conservancy - a private concession that borders the world-renowned Masai Mara National Park. The Masai Mara is considered to be one of the "Seven Wonders of the World", presenting an opportunity to experience the very best of the African bush with the Great Mammal Migration attracting the attention of travelers around the world each year. The Masai Mara teems with wildlife all year round and has over 550 bird species, making it the ideal safari destination. Saruni Masai Mara Safari Lodge is home for the next three days, providing an elegant and secluded space for you to enjoy.
