7 Days Classic Safari Samburu, Aberdare, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara 

 Day 1: Nairobi - Samburu

In the morning you will be fetched from hotel reception by your driver and driven approx. 6 hours to Samburu Nature Reserve.  This park is definitely the undisputed favorite of Kenya connoisseurs and photographers who enjoy the unique backdrop for their photographs.  Only in Samburu Park can you see wonderful giraffe, fine-drawn Grevy Zebras, long-necked Gerenuks (giraffe-necked gazelles) and the Somali-ostrich with its blue neck.  Overnight accommodation is in the Samburu Sopa Lodge.

Day 3: Samburu - Aberdare

Travel from Samburu Reserve to the Aberdares, the third-highest mountain chain in Kenya (standing at approx. 4,000m).  This solid mountain range is particularly well-known for their dense, remarkable forests and its wealth of game.  The timber forests here are interrupted by moorland landscapes and multi-tier levels and through the lush trees one can catch sensational views of Rift Valley and the summit of Mt. Kenya.  This forest is truly a hidden world of wild animals.  “Tree hotels” are a set of spectacular safari lodges which are located high on the mountain at the crown of the trees and overlook a water holes and natural salt leakages.  At night, one can see multitudes of game emerge from the forest to visit this clearing.  This is the ideal possibility for guests to observe the game inconspicuously for longer durations of time. Overnight accommodation is in the Treetops Hotel. 

Day 4: Aberdare - Lake Nakuru

After breakfast you will be driven to Lake Nakuru National Park.  Here you will have lunch in the Lake Nakuru Lodge before enjoying an afternoon safari.  Around Nakuru Lake you will find many antelope, rhinoceros and lions, as well as thousands of flamingos. Overnight accommodation will be in Lake Nakuru Lodge, which hosts a fantastic view of the lake.

Day 5: Lake Nakuru - Masai Mara

After breakfast depart for the famous nature reserve, Masai Mara, located on the northern outskirts of the Serengeti.  After arriving around noon, you will enjoy your first safari through this amazing animal park.  You will be accompanied by a professional guide who not only is an expert in driving the Landcruiser through the African savannah, but is also very familiar with this region so as to give you the best chances of seeking out the “Big Five”.  Overnight accommodation is in Mara Sopa Lodge.
