  • Samburu National Reserve

With the Ewaso Ng'iro river flowing through the middle of the reserve, this rugged, semi dessert reserve is often considered as one of the best! Abundant in the variety of species of flora & fauna, this reserve is a must visit. The park is renowned for being home to rare species of animals like the reticuled giraffe, grevys zebra, gerenuk, apart from the big cats. Indulge in a cultural experience by visiting Samburu tribal village.

  • Lake Naivasha

    A perfect break from all the land bound safaris is a boat safari and Lake Naivasha offers you an opportunity to do just that. This beautiful freshwater lake attracts a variety of game to its shores. The acacia trees that abound the banks of this lake are home to birds like hawks, cuckoos, woodpeckers and many more. As you take a boat safari, you can observe the lakes large hippo population wading or just lazily sleeping in the waters, at close range. A detour to Lake Nakuru, either on your way to Lake Naivasha or on your way back to Nairobi is a good option to explore. Lake Nakuru famous for the pink flamingoes, also houses black and white rhinos and baboons amongst the other African animals will be definitely worthwhile!
