Early morning you will be met by Casolodge Travel & Safaris representative 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.

And so the day is spent in alternating pursuits of exploration in the bush and relaxation at our camp.

DAY 9: MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE

Spend one more exciting day with unlimited game drives exploring the Mara, home to the proud and traditional Masai 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.
