Guarded by the snow-capped peaks of the Kilimanjaro, Amboseli National Park is without doubt Kenya's most breathtaking safari landscape.

We will drive around this wildlife-rich basin to witness why Amboseli rightfully belongs to the elite of African reserves. This 4x4 adventure will guide us through scenes of coordinated groups of zebra and impala grazing, elegant giraffes eating from the thorny branches of acacia trees and furtive lions stalking their prey before making our way to Ol Okenya swamp, where its famed big-tusk elephants refresh in the muddy clay of the marshes everyday.

Home of the semi-nomad Samburu people, Samburu National Reserve marks the gateway to the semi-arid landscapes of Northern Kenya and offers a very distinct landscape from the open grasslands of the south. Its rugged landscape is dominated by bushlands and its very heart, the Ewaso Nyiro River, attracts a plethora of wildlife to the main source of water in the region. 

After lunch, we will enjoy of our first afternoon game drive in Samburu National Reserve.

Samburu National Reserve

After breakfast, enjoy a full day game drive in Samburu National Reserve.

We will drive along the sandy tracks of the river as we spot the three Big Cats, lions, leopards and cheetah, as well as a unique group of wildlife species known as the Samburu Special Five: the Grevy's zebra, the Somali ostrich, the reticulated giraffe, the gerenuk antelope and the Beisa oryx. The main highlight, however, will be the plentiful elephants that roam around the reserve, which amount to around 900. Our drive will closely follow the movements of elephant along the river and look for the closest encounters with these gentle giants back in the bush, making for a top wildlife viewing experience in Kenya.

After breakfast, you will be transferred to the airstrip for the scheduled flight to Masai Mara ETD 0930/ETA 1100. Upon arrival at the Mara, you will be met by the Mara Bushtops camp driver and transferred to your camp.

Part of the massive Mara-Serengeti ecosystem that spreads over northern Tanzania and a slice of Kenya, the Masai Mara evoques the classic images of the African savannah that have been immortalized in literature and cinema. The large population of zebras, wildebeest and gazelles that come and go in the Great Migration every year have allowed for lions, leopards and cheetah to thrive in this environment for thousands of years. But besides its large wildlife numbers and fruitful conservation efforts, the Masai Mara shines for its perfectly flat geography that create the perfect conditions for spotting large numbers of game on any given drive. 

After lunch we will go on our afternoon game drive.
