NK-ADV04 : CAMPING SAFARI
Day 1 Samburu
Depart Nairobi in the morning heading north via the shoulder of Africa's second largest mountain, Mt Kenya to the Samburu Game Reserve.
On arrival start the first of your game drives along the semi-deserted scorched lava plains. Some of Kenya's rarer species like the long-necked gerenuk, Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe, beisa oryx and blue-shanked Somali ostrich can be seen here. Because of the sheer rarity and beauty of the rugged terrain I suggest that you spend two nights here.
Accommodation: At the campsite which is beautifully set under a canopy of trees or we may pitch tents o­n the edge of Uaso Nyiro River (meaning Brown in Samburu). Cold showers are available which are amazingly refreshing in the hot, dusty climates.

Day 2 Samburu
Day spent game viewing in the park appreciating the diverse landscape and variety of animal species.
Samburu is part of a lava plain that includes a diverse landscape of thorn scrub, red dirt, dried river beds, broken volcanic rock, steep hills and rocky outcroppings. Elephant and crocodile are in large numbers and there sightings a guarantee, excellent bird watching with numerous varieties of birds and large birds of prey.

Day 3 Baringo

Depart in the early morning across the scenic Lerochi Plateau (with lunch enroute) towards Lake Baringo. Arriving this fresh water lake in the late afternoon, we enjoy an evening boat ride in search of hippo, crocodile, fish eagle and a variety of other birds.
Lake Baringo is the most Northerly of Kenya’s small Rift Valley lakes; creased with papyrus and well developed acacia forest. Hippos, crocodiles and monitor lizards are effortlessly seen from the shore, as is a magnificent display of water birds. This is Kenya's bird watching Centre with over 1200 different species native to the country and more than 450 sighted here. A bird watcher's haven but beware, this is malaria land so it’s best to come prepared with plenty of mosquito repellent.

Day 4 Lake Nakuru
A 30km drive south to the spectacular Lake Bogoria with hot springs and geysers being the main attractions. The lake has been called ‘the new home of the flamingo’ with a nomad population of up to two million birds. Lunch and then proceed for an afternoon game drive at the Lake Nakuru National Park.
This small park (180 sq. km) is home to warthogs, water-buck, buffaloes, reed-bucks, and the occasional leopard. White and black rhinos were introduced to the park some years ago and you will find white rhino at the southern end. The park has also retained its reputation as an ornithologists’ delight with more than 400 species of bird found here. We spend the night at a campsite just outside of town.

Day 5 Masai Mara
Heading further south towards Narok, we proceed towards our permanent campsite on the Talek River. Here we have stand-up tents with beds or small wood cabins for those after a touch more comfort. If all are occupied, we pitch tents.
On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange tinted sunsets and you will definitely want to capture this moment while sipping on a sun downer back at our campsite. The Mara reserve is 1510 sq. km of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers. One glimpse is enough to explain its appeal; it is typical savannah, with a mass of amazing wildlife.

Day 6 Amboseli

The day is spent exploring the Mara magic. Wherever you go in the Mara you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos also exist in great numbers. It is common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but are still reasonably common.
The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.
Balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains and the wildlife after which you come back down for a beautiful champagne breakfast. These trips can be arranged at our office upon booking.

Day 7 Nairobi
We break camp and drive to Narok where Masai souvenirs can be bought, thereafter proceeding towards Nairobi. Overnight in the comforts of a hotel.

Day 8 Amboseli
Depart Nairobi in the morning and drive via Namanga on the Tanzania border to reach Amboseli early in the afternoon. We view game as we proceed towards the campsite for dinner and overnight. This small park (at 392 sq. km) is the second most popular park in Kenya after Masai Mara, mainly due to the spectacular backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro on the southern boundary.

Day 9 Amboseli
Day spent exploring this park. The waters from melted snow drain down the mountain under lava flows and surface on the Amboseli plains, creating a green belt of swampland amidst dusty plains. Here elephant, buffalo, lion, cheetah, wild beast, hyena, jackal, warthogs, zebra and the Masai giraffe are likely to be seen.

Day 10Tsavo West
We leave soon after breakfast for Tsavo West National Park. Visit the Chyulu Hills and the Mzima Springs, which are favorite haunts of both the hippo and crocodile that can be seen from an underwater observation chamber if time permits. Dinner and overnight at the campsite.
Tsavo is the largest national park in Kenya (at 22,000 sq. km). Tsavo West covers a wide variety of landscapes, from swamps and natural springs to rocky peaks, extinct volcanic cones and rolling plains. The dramatic Chyulu Hills are a collection of ancient volcanic cinder cones with splendid views of Kilimanjaro and populations of elands, giraffes, zebras and wildebeest.

Day 11 Tsavo West
Day spent exploring the park including the nature trails. In Tsavo West birds are very common - look out for the white-bellied go-away bird, red-beaked hornbills and bateleur Eagles. There are also large populations of elephants, zebras and leopards. Look out for dung beetles rolling huge balls of elephant dung along the tracks.

Day 12 Tsavo East
Early in the morning we drive to Tsavo East. This park was famed for its large herds of elephant covered in red dust and fine scenery. We visit the scenic Lugards Falls, Mudanda Rocks (attracts elephants in the drier season) and Aruba Dam as we view game if time permits.
The landscape in Tsavo East is flatter and drier, despite having one of Kenya’s largest rivers flowing through the middle. Much of the wildlife is concentrated on the Galana River, which has plentiful crocs and hippos. Likewise, Kudus, waterbucks and dik-diks are common along the river banks
