Afternoon game viewing drive in this reserve. Lunch, dinner, and overnight at a Samburu Lodge/ Camp, B, L, D.

Samburu Game Reserve is situated in the hot and arid fringes of Kenya's vast Northern Frontier District. The area is home to the Samburu tribe, pastoral relatives of the Masai. The landscape is rugged and dramatic - against a backdrop of volcanic mountains, gaunt hills and withered scrub tree punctuate the sparse and dry terrain with clusters of the incredibly hardy desert rose providing the occasional flash of vivid color. The Ewaso Nyiro river, a lifeline of the area, runs along the southern boundary dividing Samburu from Buffalo Springs Reserve. Crocodile and hippo share the river with the many small herds of elephant which bathe and frolic in the muddy brown waters during the heat of the day before returning later to browse on the lush vegetation of the riverine forest. Buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and plains game may also be seen but a special feature of this Reserve are the various species of the game unique to these northern parks - Beisa oryx, the long necked gerenuk, Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe and the blue shanked Somali ostrich.

Day 7: Explore Samburu National Park.

Early rise for a game viewing drive in the adjacent Samburu National Park. Further game viewing drive in the Park. Return to Sarova Shaba Lodge for lunch. Afternoon at leisure for perhaps a game viewing drive in this reserve. Overnight at Samburu Sopa Lodge, B, L, D.

Day 8: Depart Samburu - Lake Nakuru.

Depart to Lake Nakuru National Park with a stop at Nyahururu Falls to arrive in time for lunch at Lake Nakuru Lodge. Set on a plateau in an elevation above Lake Nakuru, is the perfect place to experience one of the world's largest ornithological spectacles, The Pink Flamingo, or a rich concentration of wildlife including black and white colobus monkey and is also a famed Rhino Sanctuary. In the afternoon proceed on a game drive in this famous ornithological spectacle for flamingoes. Dinner and overnight at Lake Nakuru Lodge, B, L, D.

Day 9: Leave Lake Nakuru - Masai Mara.

Drive through the Great Rift Valley past the spectacular Volcano Mount Longonot and head towards the rolling plains of the Masai Mara. The last one and half-hours of the journey find us on bumpy, dusty, dirt road as we drive across the Loita Plains taking in the scenery. Before entering into the Game Reserve there is a visit to a Masai village. Not only can you see inside a traditional Masai hut, and learn about Masai tradition and lifestyle, but you can also try your hand at the age-old tradition of bartering for souvenirs. The village is slightly commercialized but still, gives a good idea of how the Masai live. Dinner and overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge, B, L, D.

Day 10: Explore Day Long The Masai Mara Reserve.

Full day in Masai Mara with two game drive sessions - morning and afternoon. The Masai Mara is the most famous and prolific game park in Kenya covering an area of 1672 square kilometers. It is classified as a Reserve as opposed to a National Park to allow the Masai people to use the area to graze their cattle. A highlight of the Mara is no doubt the annual wildebeest migration, when literally millions of these beasts stray north from the Serengeti in search of grass for food, before turning south again.

The Masai Mara has one of the highest concentrations of the lion in Africa and is a good place to try and spot the elusive leopard. In most National Parks it is forbidden to drive at night so all game viewing is done as early and as late as possible to get the best conditions. The best time of the day to spot the hunting cats is just before sunrise and just after sunset so we are up and away early. During the heat of the day, we return to the lodge for huge buffet breakfasts and a chance to enjoy your superb hotel facilities, including a chance to relax by the pool.

Game Parks are places where the enthusiastic use a lot of films so it's advisable to have some extra. Hopefully, we should be able to spot a pride of lions, elephants, buffaloes, zebra and hippo and other more common animals such as warthog, giraffe, and the baboon - almost every conceivable species of East African wildlife can be spotted here.

At our lodge in the reserve, there are many optional activities to enjoy. In the evening there is the opportunity to learn more about the Masai and their way of life with a talk about their rich culture and an option to join them in traditional dancing. Early the next morning hot air ballooning is on offer. It is an amazing experience, as you take off with the sunrise and float above the Game Reserve, viewing the wildlife for approximately an hour before landing in the reserve to enjoy a full breakfast with champagne under the shade of a tree on the plains. The wildlife looks on while you partake in this luxurious fare. There are two opportunities for a balloon safari on this tour, your tour leader will advise you whether the Masai Mara or Serengeti ballooning option is the best choice depending on the location of the migration. Dinner and overnight at a Masai Mara Lodge / Camp, B, L, D.
