This Safari starts and ends at the Nairobi Airport.
You will be met at the Nairobi airport by your Driver/Guide and personal Safari Manager. All of our safaris start first thing in the morning so if your flight is scheduled to arrive after 10:00 AM (after 6:00 AM if you have the Air Option) we will take you to your hotel in Nairobi for a free day, with your safari starting tomorrow. Don't worry if your flight is late – they will be there when you arrive and will have made any necessary adjustments to your safari schedule.
Your safari starts with the drive or a flight (with the Air Option) to Samburu National Park where you will be taken to your Lodge in time for lunch. In the afternoon you will enjoy your first private game drive in this reserve famous for it's grevy zebra, reticulated giraffe, somali ostrich, hornbills and many leopards. You will return to the Lodge in time for dinner and overnight. (LD)
A full day of game viewing in Samburu. Your Driver/Guide knows how to find the elusive species and, being in constant contact with other safari drivers, will learn where special sightings are happening and will often make a beeline there. Overnight in Samburu. (BLD)
If you are traveling by Road, the entire day will be fascinating as you drive past Mount Kenya, across the Kenya Highlands and into the Great Rift Valley on your way to Masai Mara. A picnic lunch will be provided and your Driver/Guide will make several stops along the way at various places of interest. Depending on which Lodge in Masai Mara and the roads you may be able to squeeze in a game drive on your way.
If you have the Air Option, you will enjoy a game drive in either Samburu or Masai Mara, depending on the time of your flight, which does vary from day to day.
However you arrive, you will be taken to your Lodge in time for dinner and overnight. (BLD)

As in Samburu your Driver/Guide will be in contact with other safari drivers and will amaze you with his skill at locating the hidden animals. Overnight in Masai Mara. (BLD)
