Samburu National Reserve, Ol pejeta Wildlife Sanctuary and Aberdares National Park Safari – 5 Days, 4 Nights



Now this is a ‘real – deal’ way to start our 5 days kenya safari!  At the majestic Samburu National Reserve.  Prepare yourself for a rewarding cultural experience with the local tribes and exciting animal encounters. Samburu’s dominant feature is the Ewaso Ngiro River, which slices through the otherwise bone-dry country. The river acts as a magnet for thirsty animals, and large numbers of elephants, Grevy’s zebras, giraffes and lions gather along the riverbanks.


Ol pejeta conservancy will be your next stop which is located between the foothills of the Aberdares and Mount Kenya. Here, you can see the Big Five and the conservancy possesses a full palette of African plains wildlife.


You will then wrap up your safari in the mountain ranges setting of Aberdare in the central highlands of Kenya. Game viewing into the late night is from the balconies of your Tree hotels.
