This 7 night/8 day private safari takes you to the remote northern part of Kenya, to the lakeshores of Lake Nakuru, and ends with 3 nights in the famous Masai Mara. Admire the long-necked gerenuk and it's fellow members of the Samburu 5 - Grevy's zebra, the reticulated giraffe, the besia oryx and the Somali ostrich. Count endless pink flamingoes, and stalk big cats across open plains. But most of all, be blown away by the scenery.
Elephant Bedroom Camp offers luxury in a setting of breath taking beauty, as it is set along the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. The surrounding Samburu National Reserve is also an area of spectacular scenery, with its dry plains bisected by the meandering river, with a backdrop of Africa's dramatic mountains, including Mount Kenya.
Tucked away in the spectacular Great Rift Valley on the private 6,400 acre Congreve Conservancy, Mbweha Camp is nestled up against the southern border of Lake Nakuru National Park with beautiful views over the Eburru and Mau ranges.
The uniquely situated Tipilikwani Mara Camp on the banks of the Talek River overlooks the mottled plains of the Masai Mara, where vast herds of wildlife co-exist with the colourful Masai people and between June and October plays host to one of the most spectacular wildlife shows on earth - the great annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra as they enter the Mara ecosystem from the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania.
Once you have cleared Customs & Immigration at Jomo Kenyatta Airport and collected your luggage, you need to make your way into the Arrivals Hall. Here, you will be met by your private driver-guide who will be holding a signboard with your name on it. You will then be driven to Samburu in your private safari microbus, with sliding windows and a roof hatch for excellent game viewing and photography opportunites.
You will arrive in time for lunch at the camp. Elephant, monkeys and impalas are amongst the camp's many regular wild visitors, whilst Samburu National Reserve itself has a good number of lions and leopards and offers the opportunity to see many species endemic to northern Kenya. You may get the opportunity to see these on your afternoon game drive.
Today, you will enjoy a morning and an afternoon game drive in the Samburu/Buffalo Springs Reserve. Alternatively, if you would prefer, the camp can arrange for you to take a picnic lunch with you, so that you can enjoy a full day of uninterrupted game viewing with your guide.
After breakfast, depart on the drive down to the Rift Valley with a picnic lunch to enjoy on the way.
Enjoy a full day of game viewing in the Lake Nakuru National Park, stopping at midday for a picnic lunch at a scenic location. The Lake Nakuru National Park was created in 1968 to protect the huge flocks of greater and lesser flamingos that breed and nest at the edge of Lake Nakuru, and which give the lake it's characteristic pink rim. It is also one of the few places to see the endangered black rhino alongside the white rhino. Other wildlife that can be spotted includes Rothschild's giraffe, Cape buffalo, waterbuck, lion, leopard, zebra, gazelle, impala, eland and the hyrax. The Park also has extremely large pythons, who mainly inhabit the dense woodlands, but can often be seen crossing the roads or dangling from trees.
After breakfast, you will be transferred to the airstrip.
