On this magnificent Kenya safari, visit remarkable national parks and wildlife reserves in search of giraffe, cheetah, zebra, leopard, lion, elephant, rhino, gazelle, hyena, Cape buffalo, and more—all in their native environments. Imagine the thrill of seeing these majestic animals as they sunbathe on grassy land and roam across the vast savannah grassland. And with no more than 6 guests per vehicle and 20 guests total in each group you’ll experience distinguished service by your professional Tour Director and experienced Driver/Guide.

Your safari adventure starts in Samburu National Reserve, where you’ll have the chance to see rare animals not spotted in other parts of Kenya. Commonly referred to as the Samburu “Special 5,” they include the Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, Beisa oryx, and the gerenuk—a long-necked antelope that feeds while standing on its hind feet. Lion, cheetah, elephant, and Nile crocodile are also commonly spotted here. You’ll also spend two nights in Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya’s most famous game area. In addition to several game drives here, you will also enjoy an exclusive bush breakfast—a unique experience offered by Globus!

Explore Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, and Lake Nakuru, a small but diverse park known for its alkaline lake. All of this and more await you on this amazing Africa safari!

ITINERARY

Day 1 ARRIVE IN NAIROBI, KENYA.
Welcome to Africa! Arrive this evening, check in to your hotel, and prepare for your safari adventure!

Day 2 NAIROBI–MOUNT KENYA–SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE.
Today, depart Nairobi to begin your search for the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. First, stop at the famed Mount Kenya Safari Club for lunch and stunning views of Mount Kenya. After lunch, continue to SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE, known for its arid landscape and unique wildlife. Due to the dry climate, grasses are sparse, making animals easier to spot. Meanwhile, the Ewaso Ng’iro River, which borders the reserve, provides a year-round water supply. These two factors make for a great game-viewing experience. During your AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE, you have the chance to see rare animals you will not see in other parts of the country. Commonly referred to as the Samburu “Special 5,” this includes Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, beisa oryx, and the gerenuk, a long-necked antelope that feeds while standing on its hind feet

Day 3 SAMBURU.
Today, enjoy MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. In addition to the Samburu “Special 5,” the reserve is home to an abundance of other species. Large numbers of elephant and Nile crocodile can be seen, as well as waterbuck, Kirk’s dik-dik, and Grant’s gazelle. Where there is prey, predators can be found, so lion and leopard are often spotted. The reserve is also a great place for bird watching, with over 300 species. Between game drives, there’s time to relax at your lodge

After lunch, enjoy a GAME DRIVE in the conservancy, including a stop at the [LF] CHIMP SANCTUARY. In partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service and the Jane Goodall Institute, the sanctuary was established to provide a long-term home for orphaned and abused chimpanzees.

Day 7 LAKE NAKURU–MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE.
This morning, depart for MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE, Kenya’s most famous game area. The “Mara,” as it is called by locals, is part of the Serengeti ecosystem and boasts a strong permanent population of game. When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra arrives, generally from August to early November, the population enlarges by almost 2 million. This provides a great food source for predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena. After lunch at your lodge, set out on an AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE. As the sun sets, savor SUNDOWNER DRINKS and watch a [LF] TRADITIONAL MAASAI DANCE PERFORMANCE. (B,L,D)NOTE: The Great Migration is a natural event, and the arrival/departure of the migrating herds varies slightly year to year
