Samburu 2 Nights Masai Mara 2 nights 5 days game viewing
Dry‚ rugged and stunning‚ Samburu's landscape is at once stark and sensual‚ with its iconic loaf shaped Lolokowe Mountain and hills spreading in every horizon. Its life lung is the Uaso Nyiro River coursing through its craggy terrain full of stone‚ thorn bush and the forked doum palms.
The Masai Mara is world famous wildlife attraction listed as one of the Seven wonders of the World. On the Vast savannah grasslands of the Masai Mara National reserve with the Talek river flowing past‚ Mara Intrepids camp is set in deliciously wild view.
Check in at AIRKENYA'S passenger Terminal at Wilson Airport‚ for your early morning flight to Samburu in Kenya's rugged Northern Frontier District. Upon Arrival in Samburu you are transfered to your luxury Camp - Samburu Intrepids. The Camp is renowned as a pioneer of luxury camping in one of the world's last truly great wilderness areas. Situated on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in the arid heart of Samburu National Reserve‚ Samburu Intrepids looks out over riverbanks where herds of elephant‚ buffalo and zebra come daily to drink together with the rarer 'northern species of reticulated giraffe‚ Beisa oryx and long-necked gerenuk antelope. Samburu Intrepids will show you this dramatic wilderness from a world of fascinating perspectives: through stirring early morning game drives‚ walking safaris with skilled Samburu guides to sedate camel rides.
Two full days spent exploring Samburu. The only permanent source of water is The Uaso Nyiro River which provides excellent game viewing opportunities including elephant‚ buffalo‚ lion and leopard and of course the plains game. After lunch at the camp‚ and perhaps a swim in the pool‚ it's time for a further game drive. Samburu National Reserve lies on the fringes of the vast and arid desert once known as the Northern Frontier District‚ whose heat-scorched scrublands extend all the way to the jade-green waters of Lake Turkana and beyond.
Enjoy a final game drive before breakfast. After breakfast transfer to the ORYX Airstrip for your morning flight from Samburu to Masai Mara Olkiombo airstrip.
Upon arrival at the Olkiombo airstrip you will be met by a driver/guide who will transfer you to the Mara Intrepids only 5 minutes away from the airstrip. Check in and enjoy lunch at the Camp before a late afternoon game drive. Return to your camp in time for "sundowners" by the camp fire. Enjoy your first dinner under the Masai Mara starlit sky.
Appreciate the richness of the Park's wildlife‚ and track game over the endless savannah. Huge herds of plains game‚ lion‚ leopard‚ cheetah‚ large numbers of elephant‚ and a wide variety of other birds and animals frequent the Mara's tree flecked grasslands. There are several areas of dense hippo and crocodile populations in the bends of the traversing Mara River some Mara crocs are longer than 15 feet. Set in the heart of Africa's Great Plains‚ the Masai Mara boasts 1‚672 sq. kilometres of unspoilt wilderness. It offers the best game and bird-viewing not only in Kenya‚ but anywhere in Africa. Throughout the year the Masai Mara is a place of natural drama‚ a kaleidoscope of colour and life.
