Your 8-day Kenyan safari kicks off with a night in Nairobi before heading off in your private vehicle with an experienced and dedicated guide to Samburu Game Lodge on the western bank of the Uaso Nyiro River. Samburu’s wildlife is plentiful in the thick acacia and palm forests along the riverbanks where plains grazers and browsers come to drink and seek shade.
Your next destination is Treetops Lodge located just inside the gates of Kenya's Aberdare National Park and which overlooks a natural waterhole right in the path of an ancient elephant migration route. On a clear day, from your dreamy forest safari retreat you can also see the snowy peaks of Mount Kenya. You then drive to Lake Baringo Club set on the water’s edge of the idyllic Lake, which offers quiet relaxation and birding to rival any destination worldwide. Morning and evening bird walks are guided by the specialist ornithologist who imparts his expert knowledge about the various species and their habitats.
Your last stop before making your way back to Nairobi is Keekorok Lodge in the eastern section of the Masai Mara National Reserve. This African-style lodge lies in the direct path of thousands of zebra and wildebeest which migrate across the plains between May and October each year. Hot-air balloon trips provide the opportunity to see migrating animals from a bird’s-eye view and are followed by a champagne bush breakfast.
