8 Days / 7 Nights: Aberdare – Samburu – Lake Baringo – Lake Nakuru – Masai Mara

Our most comprehensive and perhaps the most popular safari we offer, the 8 Days / 7 Nights Safari is a magnificent journey through Kenya, with luxuriously long stays in each game park, abundant time for rich wildlife viewing sessions. The breadth and scope of this exciting 8 Days Safari encompasses everything for which East Africa is famous„the magnificent scenery, the breathtaking wildlife, the excitement and adventure. And all experienced at a leisurely, luxurious pace, creating warm memories to relive for a lifetime.

Day 1 Nairobi – Mt. Kenya National Park/Aberdare National Park (Forest Tree Lodge)

Our adventure today begins with a lovely drive to Aberdare National Park. We stop for pictures along the way as we travel overland through plantations of coffee and tea to The Aberdare Country Club, nestled on the slopes of Mweiga Hill. After lunch and afternoon high tea, 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. You can put in a request to be awakened during the night if your favorite animals show up. 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.

Day 2 Forest Tree Lodge – Samburu Game Reserve

This morning we travel by road to KenyaÍs northern frontier. Wild and rugged, Samburu is fiercely beautiful with its arid savannahs watered by the lovely Uaso Nyiro River. It is also one of KenyaÍs most protected areas and home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to GrevyÍs zebras and Beisa Oryxes. We also enjoy Larsens Tented Camp or Samburu Intrepids Camp, our luxurious hostelry set beneath a canopy of acacia trees along the banks of the river.

Day 3 Samburu Game Reserve

Dawn breaks in golden bands as we start our day in the bush by scanning the river from our tentÍs veranda with a cup of steaming coffee in hand. Before the dew is off the grass, weÍre off in pursuit of the elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetahs that thrive in the reserveÍs grasslands and acacia woodlands. And so the day is spent in alternating pursuits of exploration in the bush and relaxation in our cozy Camp/Lodge.
