7 days / 6 nights in Kenya’s most spectacular wildlife areas – Maasai Mara & Samburu
Including all local flights and transfers between Nairobi and the two reserves
Travel from 3rd January to 19th December 2022
The Maasai Mara in the southeast corner of Kenya is the country’s premier tourism showpiece and forms part of the vast unfenced Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, including neighbouring private conservancies in Kenya and the larger Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. Species to look out for include the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino), many antelope species, zebras, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles and good populations of cheetahs, hyenas and wild dogs, as well as smaller species such as serval and bat-eared fox.
You will be staying in Mara North Conservancy which borders the Maasai Mara National Reserve. There are no fences between the Conservancy and the Reserve, and wildlife wanders freely. The Reserve can become crowded during the high safari seasons of July to November and January to February, and during these times it’s advisable to stay in the neighbouring private conservancies. The private conservancies allow responsible off-road road driving, night drives and bush walks – which are not possible within the Reserve.
The private conservancies are close enough to permit day trips to the river crossings and mass congregations of wildebeest in the Reserve during the Great Migration. These day trips into the Reserve will incur extra costs – park fees and exclusive use of a game drive vehicle for the day.
Samburu, in Kenya’s remote and arid far north, features the iconic and rarely seen ‘Samburu five’ – Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, beisa oryx, gerenuk and Somali ostrich. These unique and rare animals are relatively common in Samburu, making your safari here extremely rewarding. You can also expect to see elephants, cheetahs, lions, leopards, buffalos, hippos, and various antelope species. Samburu was the home of Joy and George Adamson, who famously raised and released into the wild several lions, made famous by the movie ‘Born Free’, featuring Elsa the Lioness.
You will be staying in Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy which borders Samburu National Reserve. There are no fences between the Conservancy and the Reserve, and wildlife wanders freely.
