Description

3 DAYS, 2 NIGHTS SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE WILDLIFE, SCENERY & CULTURAL SAFARI TOUR BY ROAD:

(Departs Nairobi, returns to Nairobi)

Experience Kenya’s wild side with a 3-day Samburu road safari. This semi-arid desert region is home to the Ewaso Nyiro river, dense woodlands, countless animals, birds and the Samburu people.

Samburu is a Maasai word for the leather bag that they use when they carry milk and honey.

The Maasai and Samburu are both nomadic pastoralists and their diet consists mainly of meat, milk and honey.

A visit to a Samburu village will prove insightful, so make sure to include it in your itinerary.

Samburu’s remoteness made it inaccessible for years, so it still has a serene ambience and wild charm.

Day 1: Nairobi to Samburu Game Reserve

Your Samburu road safari will begin in Nairobi in the early morning where you will be picked up.

You will travel by road across the equator from the Southern to the Northern Hemisphere, and onward to the semi-arid region of the Samburu Game Reserve.

Your eyes will feast on the dramatic landscapes of the Samburu from dried riverbeds to red volcanic soil, rock outcrops, woodlands and the Ewaso Nyiro River.

Arrive at the camp in time for lunch, followed by an afternoon game viewing drive, and return back to the camp before sunset.

Dinner and overnight at your safari lodge / Tented Camp on Full Board basis.
Meals: Lunch & Dinner

Day 2: Samburu Game Reserve

Day 2 will be dedicated to a full day game drive in the Samburu Game Reserve where you will search for the big five, the Samburu five and view the vast unspoiled scenery.

A cultural visit to the pastoralist Samburu people can be arranged at an extra cost.
