The trip begins with travelling through incredibly scenic landscapes from Nairobi to Samburu National Reserve located on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro river in the Rif Valley Province of Kenya.
Samburu region of Kenya is home to the rare grevy's zebra, gerenuk antelope, blue-necked Somali ostriches, Befsa oryx, Elephants, Crocodiles, Reticulated giraffes, Hippos and Lions. Bird watching is excellent with numerous varieties of weaver birds and the martial eagle.

The reserve is East Africa's largest black rhino sanctuary and the only place in Kenya to view chimpanzees (Kenya's only chimpanzee sanctuary).

From Lake Naivasha, you then head into one of the top game parks in Africa - the epic Masai Mara National Reserve. The Mara is best known for the annual Great Migration that sees massive herds of Wildebeest, Zebra and Gazelle moving across the savannah in search of fresh grazing.
It’s also famous for its impressive populations of Africa’ big cats - Lions, Leopards and Cheetahs. The Big Five (Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephant) are commonly sighted throughout the year, in addition to all kinds of plains game.
