Samburu Intrepids 3 Days 2 Nights Flying Package
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. In this arid zone where water is scarce and the land baked by the eternal sun‚ herds of elephants and the big cats roam the plains with the Samburu special - the Reticulated giraffe‚ Grevy's zebra‚ Beisa oryx‚ Somali ostrich and the long necked antelope‚ the gerenuk easily seen despite its harsh climes.
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. Samburu Game Reserve is unique. The vegetation comprises predominantly acacia woodland interspersed with bush‚grass and scrubland‚ which is broken here and there by small rugged hills whilst the meandering loops of the river are bordered by a narrow gallery of riverine woodland in which acacia and doum palm flourish. This is a dry country ecosystem and is‚ therefore‚ prone to large variations in the animal populations as they move in search of water and pasture.
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. Physically dramatic‚ the 104 sq kilometre landscape of the Reserve features rocky battlements‚ craggy scarps‚ dry river beds and fallen boulders rising out of the thorn scrub against a backdrop of the far-distant hills and the great red table mountain known as Lololokwi.
Enjoy a final game drive before breakfast. After breakfast transfer to the airstrip and your return flight to Wilson Airport‚ whereupon your safari ends.
