At 8.00am drive from Nairobi to Mt. Mt. Kenya, then down to Isiolo arrive to  Samburu Nat. Reserve at around 300pm .  This day is dedicated to game viewing in Samburu National Game Reserve. The Samburu National Game Reserve extends for an area of 105 square kilometres north of the meandering Ewaso Ngiro or 'Brown' river. It is part of a lava plain that includes a varied landscape of red dirt, thorn scrub, broken volcanic rock, dried river beds, steep hills, and rocky outcroppings, some large enough to be called mesas.

Following the river curves, a riverine forest of doom palms, acacia, and tamarind is a magical contrast of cool green. It is attractive to the region's wildlife and visitors alike. There are elephants, hippos, crocodiles and leopards, as well as plains game, other small mammals and birdlife. The region is home to the rare Grevy Zebra with large furry ears, gerenuk antelope standing on hind legs to feed, Somali ostriches with their distinctive blue legs, and the shy Oryx beisa.

DAY 2 - Samburu National Reserve – to lake Nakuru

Depart Samburu national reserve   and head towards the Aberdare Ranges to Thompson's falls at Nyahururu view the falls then continue
Down the Great Rift Valley to arrive at Lake Nakuru lodge. Inside the Lake Nakuru National Park.
Depart on an afternoon game drive, Created as a bird sanctuary, Lake Nakuru National Park features more than 400 species of birds, many from Europe and East Asia. The park includes a large savannah area to the south. A shallow blue-green alkaline lake famous for its flocks of pink lesser and greater flamingos.

The tilapia grahami fish has been introduced to provide food for the pelicans who also call Lake Nakuru home. The blue-green colour is because of the presence of blue-green algae called spirulinga. The level of the lake goes up and down with the amount of rainfall and the colour is dependent on the conditions for the growth of algae. There have been up to two million flamingos on the lake at one time. When disturbed the birds lift gracefully into the air in a solid moving pink carpet.
Nakuru has proven to be an excellent and safe sight for the Rothschild giraffe and black rhino. It is an excellent spot also to photograph the hippo, reedbuck and defassa waterbuck.

DAY 4- - Full day  Masai Mara National Reserve.

This day is solely reserved for game viewing in the vast Masai Mara National Reserve.The Masai Mara is the most popular game reserve in Kenya. It is an extension of the Serengeti Plains in Tanzania, and offers the best game viewing in Kenya. On these wide open rolling grasslands you can often see an incredible variety of different animals at one time. Perhaps a cheetah mother sits on a termite mound with her punky-looking cubs, while beyond, gazelle, antelope and zebra placidly graze.

Giraffe might peer curiously through the trees, while elephants pass on silent feet and vultures circle above. Every year millions of wildebeests migrate north from the Serengeti to the green grass of the Mara. This exciting spectacle usually occurs sometime between July and August.
Even when animals are not highlighting the scene, the views by themselves are worth the trip. Visits to a Masai manyatta can be arranged between you and the driver. Another popular 'excursion' is a romantic hot air balloon trip where you view animals from above and then touch down for an extravagant breakfast in the bush. Pricey but memorable, at aa arranged cost.- per person this can be arranged directly before or upon arrival with Travel Connections.
