DAY 1 AND 2
We leave Nairobi for Samburu National Reserve
at 0900 hrs.This park is situated within the lands
of the colorful Samburu people,close relatives
of the Maasai people. A picnic lunch will be served
on the way and we shall arrive in time for an
evening game drive. The park harbors a number
of wildlife species rarely found elsewhere in
any large numbers.These include the Grevy's gazelle,
the reticulated giraffe and the Beisic orynx,all
species only found north of the equator. The Ewaso
Ngiro river which rises some hundreds of kilometers
to the west is fringed with giant acacias and
offers shade and sustenance to wildlife that comes
to the river.Elephants find solace and contentment
from the river and can be found bathing and drinking
in a spectacle of unconscious pleasure. Dinner
will be at the preferred choice of accommodation.
The second day will be spent game viewing in the
park.All meals will be served at the campsite.
We shall leave the park in the afternoon and drive
to the Aberdare, where we will spend the night
at one of the luxurious Tree Top Lodges situated
in the lush forests of the Aberdares. These Lodges
overlook waterholes and salt licks that become
somewhat busy as the sun sets as the animals come
to quench their thirst after a long day.
We shall leave the Aberdares in the morning for
an evening game drive at the Lake Nakuru National
Park.This Park is often referred to as the "pink
lake" as it is world famous as the location
of the greatest bird spectacle on earth-the pink
flamingo whose numbers are legion,often more than
a million or two.The lake is also rich in other
birdlife with over 400 resident species.The park
has been enlarged to provide sanctuary for the
black rhino which exists here in the greatest
concentration in the country.
Other wild life found here include the Roth's
-childgiraffe, the waterbuck,predators like the
lion ,leopard etc.
All meals will be provided from the accommodation
After an early morning game drive we shall then
depart for Nairobi.
