"Samburu National Reserve is situated about 350 kms north of Nairobi in the semi arid part of Kenya. Ewaso Nyiro River, the only water source in the dry season, bisects the reserve and apart from providing water to life, the river is home to some of the biggest Reptiles in the region and attracts a good number of birds. Some 300 different species have already
been recorded.
An unusual forked palm, the doum palm, grows along the banks of this river
and adds striking beauty to the panorama. Wildlife is surprisingly abundant for such a dry place and includes species such as Gerenuk, Dik-dik, Grant's and Thomson's gazelles, Elephant, Cheetah, Leopard and Lion. There are several species, which are unique to this area including; Grevy's zebra, Beisa oryx, Somali Ostrich and reticulated Giraffe"

Day 7: Masai Mara  
OPTIONAL: 

Today there will be a possibility to take a hot air balloon ride.
"Take to the skies for the ultimate Maasai Mara wildlife adventure, soaring in a hot air balloon over herds of game to the inner reaches of the Mara. You'll ascend in the early morning, when winds are calmest. Watch as the professional crew fills the balloon with hot air. Slowly the big, colorful bag begins to bulge and take shape. Now board the traditional wicker gondola basket while the expert pilot makes final adjustments. As the pink and red fireball of the sun rises in splendor over the plains, you're up, up and away - for the flight of a lifetime! Your balloon can soar over the most inaccessible and undisturbed parts of the Mara, with only the intermittent whisper of the balloon's gas burners punctuating the silence of your majestic flight. Because wind and weather conditions vary, every flight is a new and different experience! From your vantage point about 50-500 feet above the reserve, you have a fantastic 360-degree bird's-eye view as one of the most dramatic scenes in nature unfolds beneath you. Depending on the season, you might witness herds of antelope flowing like schools of fish across the plain, groups of elephants grazing undisturbed in a remote ravine, lionesses stealthily stalking a herd of grunting wildebeest, or zebras conferring in a confusion of black and white stripes and bark-like calls. After your incredible flight, it's time to come back down to earth for breakfast. As you sip champagne and dig into a splendid breakfast of sizzling bacon, eggs, sausage, home-made breads, fresh tropical fruit and steaming cups of Kenyan coffee or tea under the clear blue sky, you might wonder what all the ordinary people are doing on this perfect African morning! Before leaving, the pilot will present you with your balloon flight certificate, and then you'll enjoy a game drive en route back to the camp. No flight of the imagination can match this airborne experience!
Note:   Comfortable clothes, a hat or visor, sunglasses, sunscreen and a light jacket or sweater are recommended. This tour will be offered at a very special price if booked together with the safari.

 

 

Otherwise:
6.00am - Wake up call. Tea, coffee and cookies will be served in the lodge.
6.30am - Set out for an early morning game drive in the reserve. This is usually the most popular game viewing time. During the early hours temperatures are low, thus providing a favorable atmosphere both for the game and the viewer. Lion, Cheetah and Leopard roam the vast grasslands in search for their next meal, it may be an unsuspecting impala or even a small one like the warthog.whatever the players, the spectacle of nature unfolding is always awe inspiring!
8.30am - Back at the lodge, enjoy your sumptuous buffet breakfast.
10.00am - Mid morning game drive.
4.00pm - Afternoon game drive. Return to the camp before dark.
7.30pm - Dinner in the tented camp.

Breakfast will be at 7.00 am and you will be picked up by a driver from 'Kenya Walking Survivor Safaris' at 8.00am. The road to the Green Crater Lake takes you out of Naivasha and along a rough and bumpy road down the edge of lake Naivasha , passing by huge Greenhouses where roses and other flowers are grown for the export market. You will arrive at the Green Crater Lake at 9.30am approx and you will begin your morning game walk. The green crater lake was formed by volcanic activity. The group will walk in a reserve where its possible to get up close to Giraffe and many varieties of antelope.it's a great opportunity for photos.The guides will answer questions about the animals, birdlife etc and point out the rocks formed due to the volcanic activity.
At 12.00pm you will leave for lunch at 'canary  camp' about 20 mininutes back down the road toward Naivasha town.This lunch will be supplied by KWSS and will be prepared by their cook. carnary camp is a lovely camp on the shore of Lake Naivasha and has a large resident bird population inc Ibis, superb starlig. Lovebirds, fisheagle and Hoopoe and is a great opportunity to see the Black and White colobus monkey.After lunch you will have some free time. You could sit back at the campsite bar and enjoy a cold drink and a game of pool or participate in some optional activities like cycling around the village or hire a small power boat for a trip out on to the lake. An option worth considering for inclusion in the Itinerary.
  Elsamere, the home of the late Joy and George Adamson is just a few klms away. Joy is famous for her book 'Born Free' and was an artist of some note. For an entry fee of Ksh 1000 per pax (approx USD$10) they get to visit the small museum, watch a documentary video of their life and then sit in the lovely gardens beside the lake and enjoy an afternoon tea of beautiful cakes, scones and slices and tea and coffee. Elsamere opens at 3.30pm and I recommend INCLUDING this option. It will take about 2 hours.

Stretching for 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as "the loveliest I had seen in Africa". From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonously in the high canopy. You will do a game drive in the morning, followed by a lunch picnic. In the afternoon, we continue the game drive and finally we will reach our hotel.

Scenic grandeur and stunning views are the hallmark of this wonder of the world. There are 25,000 larger animals within the crater itself, mostly zebra and wildebeest. However, this is undoubtedly the best place to see black rhinos in Tanzania as well as prides of lion that include the magnificent black-maned males. There are lots of colorful flamingoes and a variety of other water birds around the soda lake on the crater floor. The crater is home to more than 100 species of birds which cannot be found in the Serengeti. We will have lunch at the hippo pool picnic site, and later ascend to the rim and have dinner.

The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 gazelles join the wildebeest's trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa. We will have dinner and overnight at Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Savannah Camp - http://serengetisavannahcamps.com/

Day 15  - Tarangire National Park
After breakfast we meet the Hadzabe people again and accompany them when they do hunting. Then we depart for the Tarangire National Park. During the hot and dry season, the Tarangire River shrivels to a shadow of its wet season self. But still it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty animals have wandered hundreds of parched kilometres knowing that here, always, there is water. Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It's the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem. We will have a picnic lunch in the park, do an afternoon game drive, and have dinner and overnight at Tarangire Safari Lodge - www.tarangiresafarilodge.com/

 

Day 16 - Tarangire park - Arusha- Dar esalam
