After breakfast transfer to Wilson airport for your flight to Samburu. Rugged and remote, this wildlife reserve provides some the best and most colourful game viewing in the country. You will make Elephant Bedroom Camp your home for the next four nights. The camp offers luxury in a setting of breathtaking beauty. It is set along the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River and shaded by doum palms and other trees that make up this green belt of riverine forest. The spacious tents have colourful African touches, offering all the comforts; including a private plunge pool on the deck, hot water, electricity and herbal shower and bath products
Enjoy the next3 days in Samburu with morning and afternoon game drives. The Samburu National Reserve is an area of spectacular scenery; its dry plains bisected by the meandering river, with the backdrop of Africa’s dramatic mountains, including Mt Kenya. You also have the option of a guided bush walk or a visit to a local Samburu Village paid locally
This morning your will transfer to the airstrip for your flight to the Masai Mara offering wonderful scenery and plenty of game. Settle in to the Entim Mara Camp for the next four nights, which offers 12 luxury tents. Entim was designed to be in the best possible location on the Mara river and for a few months of the year the migration is on our doorstep. It is these mighty rivers that are the greatest obstacles for the hundreds of thousands of wildebeest on their journey north. The currents are strong, the banks are steep and thousands perish in the jaws of massive crocodiles. Crossings are spectacular and frenetic, and provide thrilling game viewing either from a vehicle or when simply relaxing in camp. The plains around are filled with an extraordinary concentration of wildlife, from plains game to large herds of elephant and buffalo – and, of course, predators.
Spend your next three days on game drives in the Mara either in the morning and afternoon or all day with picnic lunch
After a short safari activity and breakfast you will be escorted to the airstrip for your flight to Nairobi-Wilson. Consider extending your stay to the Kenyan Coast or Zanzibar for a nice way to round off your safari.
