Days 1 and 2: Samburu National Reserve
From Nairobi at 7.30 am, safaris head north to the Samburu National reserve for two nights at one of the lodges or camps on the banks of the Ewaso Ng'iro River Samburu Serena Lodge or Samburu Sopa Lodge, where most of the game is concentrated. Animals include giraffes, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, buffalos,lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas and great species of birds. Look out for species here not seen further South such as Grevy's zebra, Somali ostrich and gerenuk, an unusual antelope that can reach up the trees on its hind legs accommodation is in a luxury lodge or budget two person camping tent with foam mattress provided depending on your safari budget, all this can be tailored to suite your request.
Day 3: Aberdare National Park
Heading South after breakfast, the option is to spend a night in one of the two unusual tree lodges in the Aberdare National Park. Treetops Lodge where Princes Elizabeth stayed in 1952 in the night that her father died and she became the Queen, or the Ark Lodge built in the shape of Noah's Ark. At night, stay up to watch the game activities over the floodlit waterholes. This park is unusual in that it lies above 21,000m (68,880 ft.) and so has a more alpine feel, with mountains, streams, valleys and moorland by the doorstep.
Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park
After another morning breakfast, your safari will head to Lake Nakuru National Park. Situated just a stone's throw from Nakuru town, the attractive Lake Nakuru National Park surrounds the Lake of the same name, which is a haven for the pink lesser flamingo as well as hippos. Other species include various antelope, giraffe, zebra, lion, rhino and leopard (which can actually be spotted during daylight hours in the arms of the giant yellow acacia trees near the entrance). Enjoy the great view from the park's rocky escarpments and ridges. Accommodation can be at the Lake Nakuru Lodge, Flamingo Hill Tented Camp or a hotel in Nakuru.
Days 5 and 6: Masai Mara National Reserve
You will leave Lake Nakuru to drive to masai mara to spend two nights in the Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya's most famous game park with an extraordinary density of animals, including the Big Five. In July and August, it's also the scene of the migration, when hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, plus smaller numbers of zebra and antelope, arrive in search of fresh grazing from Tanzania's Serengeti National Park to the south. The predators follow the herds, so this is the best time to witness plenty of animal action, especially if you get the opportunity to see the wildebeest cross the Masai Mara River, where they have to dodge crocodiles too. Accommodation and full board meals shall be at the Mara Sopa Lodge or Enchoro Wildlife Camp.
Day 7: Nairobi
An early morning game drive in Masai Mara before breakfast followed by late breakfast at the Lodge/camp and departure for Nairobi stopping sporadically for the breathtaking panoramic views of the rift valley and adjacent landforms. The tour ends in Nairobi late in the afternoon with sweet memories.
