After lunch we transfer by lodge vehicle to the Lodge. All night game viewing is from the terrace overlooking the illuminated saltlick water hole, a great introduction to Africa.
Day 4: Samburu Sopa Lodge
After breakfast, we shall head north to the Northern Frontier of Kenya, past the small trading towns of Timau and Isiolo. This gem of a reserve would have delighted Charles Darwin for it is here that you will see unique animals such as the Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy’s Zebra, Beisa Oryx, the blue necked Somali Ostrich and the Gerenuk…the Little 5 of Samburu. This is the place where a Lioness actually adopted a baby Oryx. Once the Oryx was old enough to leave, the Lioness promptly adopted another and later, another! We arrive at the luxury lodge on the shores of Uaso Nyiro River for lunch. This afternoon, experience your first game-drive in this magical reserve.
Day 5: Samburu Sopa Lodge
Bird watching is fantastic here. You will be amazed at the hundreds of species. Your guide knows them all! This park has the elusive leopard and cheetah. While you are enjoying your early morning and late afternoon game drives, keep an eye on the trees. You just might see a leopard feeding on an impala that he carried up the tree and draped over the limb.
Day 6 Masai Mara Fig Tree Lodge
After breakfast, we shall transfer you to the airstrip for your direct flight to Masai Mara National Reserve. The Mara is an awesome natural wonder, a place where Maasai warriors share the plains with hunting lions, a place of mighty herds and timeless cycles of life, death and regeneration. This is the highlight of your Kenya Safari!
Days 7-8: Masai Mara Fig Tree Lodge
We shall spend 2 more nights here with early morning and afternoon game drives. During midday, we will visit a Masai tribe. Your resident naturalist-guide will be only too glad to show you all that makes the Mara so unforgettable!

Enjoy the final early morning game drive of your Kenya Safari followed by breakfast; then a late morning flight to Nairobi. A day room has been reserved for you in Nairobi at the Fairview Hotel until 1800 hours.

After dinner, we will transfer you to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport where we say our farewells.
