Information

A 4-day, 3-night safari combining Aberdare National Park and Samburu National Reserve in Kenya offers a diverse and rewarding wildlife experience, with the chance to explore two distinct ecosystems and encounter a variety of species.

Itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi – Drive to Aberdare or Mt. Kenya National Park

(Nairobi to Aberdare 220 Kilometers, Approximately - 3½ Hours drive). Depart Nairobi after breakfast. Our destination today is the Aberdare National Park. We travel overland through plantations of coffee and tea to The Aberdare Country Club, nestled on the slopes of Mweiga Hill. After lunch, set off for the Ark tree lodge, located in the forest on mountain slopes of the Aberdare Mountains at 7,000 feet. This outstanding lodge offers high altitude game viewing, including animals that are rarely encountered elsewhere: Giant Forest hog, Bush pig, Tree Hyrax, large Spotted Genet, and the elusive Bongo Antelope. Wildlife can be observed from different levels – and from outside where you can see, hear, and smell everything and inside where you can sit with a cup of tea and stay warm and cozy. You can put in a request to be awakened during the night if your favorite animals show up. A herd of Elephants might just be few feet away and if you are lucky, a Leopard or large male Lion might appear. Overnight at the Ark or Treetops Hotel or Similar {Lunch & Dinner}.

Day 2: Forest Lodge – Drive to Samburu Game Reserve

(180 kilometers, approximately 3 Hours drive) This morning we travel by road to Kenya’s northern frontier. Wild and rugged, Samburu is fiercely beautiful with its arid savannahs watered by the lovely Uaso Nyiro River. It is also one of Kenya’s most protected areas and home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to Grevy’s zebras and Beisa oryxes. We also enjoy Larsens Tented Camp or Samburu Intrepids Camp, our luxurious hostelry set beneath a canopy of acacia trees along the banks of the river. Overnight at Ashnil Tented Camp or Sarova Lodge or Similar Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}.

Day 3: Explore Samburu Game Reserve

Dawn breaks in golden bands as we start our day in the bush by scanning the river from our tent’s veranda with a cup of steaming coffee in hand. Before the dew is off the grass, we’re off in pursuit of the Elephants, Lions, Leopards, and Cheetahs that thrive in the reserve’s grasslands and acacia woodlands. And so the day is spent in alternating pursuits of exploration in the bush and relaxation in our cozy camp or lodge. Overnight at Ashnil Tented Camp or Sarova Lodge or Similar Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}.

Day 4: Samburu – Drive to Nairobi

Depart from the lodge after breakfast and drive back to Nairobi arriving early afternoon. Transfer you to your hotel or to the airport for your onward flight.
