Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: 09:30 - depart from Nairobi city centre based Hotels passing through lavish green vegetation of the highland of Central Province, the agricultural nucleus of Kenya. En-route you are able to see Kenya's main cash crop e.g. coffee. Picnic lunch en-route. Samburu is reached in the evening. Dinner and overnight at the campsite.

Day 2: Full day game viewing at the Park. Samburu lies 325 km north of Nairobi in the hot and arid triangles of the vast northern region of Kenya. The reserve is within the lands of the colorful Samburu people, close relatives of the Maasai and harbors a number of wildlife species rarely found elsewhere in any numbers. These include grevys zebra, reticulated giraffe and beisa oryx all species only found north of the equator. The long necked gerenuk is a graceful antelope, which spends much of its time in a BI-pedal stance seeking succulence among the withered scrub, which dots this harsh terrain. Scenically and faunally dramatic, for most of the year Samburu is seen under the unsympathetic equatorial sun.

But relief comes from the wide swathe of the Ewaso Nyiro River which rises some hundreds of kilometers to the west on the foothills of aberdares and which vanishes beyond Samburu in the recesses of the Lorian swamp. The river is at it's best in the reserve, broad and sluggish with a large population of crocodiles seen on sandbanks at almost every bend. In the lower reaches, where the permanent pools have formed as tributary joins the river, are hippos. The river is also fringed with giant acacias, figs and doum palms, all of which provide shade and sustenance to the wildlife which comes to water. The elephant seek solace and contentment in the shallow waters of the river and from time to time a visitor finds herds bathing and drinking in a spectacle of unconscious pleasure. Dinner and overnight at the campsite.

Day 3: After breakfast depart for Nairobi, enjoy a picnic lunch en-route arriving Nairobi early evening.
