7 Days 6 Nights Samburu Game Reserve, Aberdares National Park, Lake Naivasha & Masai Mara Game Reserve

08 September 2018 South West Circuit

DAY 1: NAIROBI – SAMBURU GAME RESERVE

Early morning you will be met by Casolodge Travel & Safaris Ltd at the Airport/ Residence for a small briefing before embarking on your journey to Samburu, Samburu is fiercely beautiful with its arid savannahs watered by the lovely Ewaso Nyiro River. It is also one of Kenya’s most protected areas and home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to Grevy’s zebras and Beisa Oryx. A luxurious hostelry set beneath a canopy of acacia trees along the banks of the river. Back to the Camp.

Dinner and Overnight at Ashinil Samburu or similar on Full Board.

DAY 2: SAMBURU GAME RESERVE

Dawn breaks in golden bands as we start our day in the bush before the dew is off the grass, we’re off in pursuit of the “Big five” Elephants, Lions, Leopards, and Cheetahs that thrive in the reserve’s grasslands and acacia woodlands. And so the day is spent in alternating pursuits of exploration in the bush and relaxation at our camp.

Dinner and Overnight at Ashinil Samburu or Similar on Full Board

DAY 3: SAMBURU GAME RESERVE – ABERDARE NATIONAL PARK

Check out of the camp early in the morning our destination today is Aberdare National Park. We travel overland south from Samburu to The Aberdare Country Club, nestled on the slopes of Mweiga Hill. After lunch, set off for the Ark tree lodge, located in the forest on mountain slopes of the Aberdare Mountains at 7,000 feet. This outstanding lodge offers high altitude game viewing, including animals that are rarely encountered elsewhere: giant forest hog, bush pig, tree hyrax, large spotted genet, and the elusive bongo. Wildlife can be observed from different levels and from outside where you can see, hear and smell everything and inside where you can sit with a cup of tea and stay warm and cozy. A herd of Elephants might be just feet away and if you are lucky, a Leopard or large male Lion might put in an appearance.

Dinner and Overnight at the Ark or Treetops Hotel on Full Board

DAY 5: LAKE NAIVASHA – MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE

After an early breakfast set off for the highlight of your trip, the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Enjoy a game drive en-route to your camp where you might encounter some of the “Big Five”( Lion. Elephant. Buffalo. Rhino. Leopard.)  And you will most certainly be impressed by the wide variety of species present in this area. The Masai Mara has the highest concentration of land mammals compared to all other parks!

Dinner and Overnight at  Ashinil Mara Camp on Full Board.

DAY 6: MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE

Spend one more exciting day with unlimited game drives exploring the Mara, home to the proud and traditional Maasai tribe. We can arrange a visit to a local Maasai Village if you like. (@ an extra cost) The Mara is more than just the most popular wildlife park in the country; in many cases it is the reason why people come to visit Kenya. This is a classic African savanna, and the sheer density of wildlife is amazing. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers and where prey is found so are predators. Watered by the Mara River and its tributary the Talek, the park here compromises 1510 sq kilometres of open grassland tucked away in the south west corner of the country. In the Mara you will see an astonishing amount of wild life, including the big cats, where lions are found in large prides everywhere and it is not uncommon to see them hunting. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but are still fairly common. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos also exist in large numbers.

Dinner & Overnight at Ashinil Mara Camp on Full Board.

DAY 7: MAASAI MARA GAME RESERVE – NAIROBI

Enjoy your breakfast then check out of the hotel. Afterwards depart from  the Mara paradise and head to Nairobi. Drop off at you preffed location.
