Samburu Game Reserve & Lake Nakuru Safari

4 Days/ 3 Nights Samburu Game Reserve & Lake Nakuru National Park Safari from Nairobi is an ingeniously crafted holiday/ vacation offering spectacular wildlife viewing, cultural activities in Samburu Game Reserve and Lake Nakuru National

4 Days/ 3 Nights Samburu Game Reserve & Lake Nakuru National Park Safari from Nairobi is a tour geared towards wildlife enthusiasts. If you are looking to see loads of game, this is the tour for you. Your safari starts with Samburu National Reserve situated on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in Kenya. 

This means plenty of water, trees and shade to attract wildlife like elephant, lion, giraffe and zebra from the surrounding savannah plains. Leopards are also regularly spotted.  

Samburu Game Reserve is not particularly well-known and is therefore not too crowded – a huge plus in Kenya where so many reserves are often overflowing with tourists. It is often grouped together with the Buffalo Springs and Shaba National Reserves as they lie so close together.

 Lake Nakuru National Park is world famous as the location of the greatest bird spectacle on earth – myriads of fuschia pink flamingoes whose numbers are legion, often more than a million maybe two.  

Notable game within the lake includes hippo and clawless otters. On the shores roam waterbuck, Bohor’s Reedbuck and zebra. The woodlands and forest are now home to both black and white rhino.  

Game viewing is relatively easy: Buffalo, Leopard, Lion, Rothschild’s Giraffe, Black and White Colobus Monkey are plentiful in the forest. The bush lands offer Eland, Steenbok, Impala, Chandler’s Reedbuck and Dikdik, whilst Rock hyrax and Klipspringer occupy the cliffs and escarpment.


Day 1: Nairobi – Drive to Samburu Game Reserve

This morning, your African   Safari travels by road to Kenya’s 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 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 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 2: Explore Samburu Game Reserve

Dawn breaks in golden bands as we start our day in the bush by scanning the river from our tent’s veranda with a cup of steaming coffee in hand.  

Before the dew is off the grass, we’re off in pursuit of the 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 in our cozy camp or lodge.
