A safari that is all you will need to experience wildlife game viewing of many species that are rarely found elsewhere in Kenya, such as the narrow-striped, large-earred Grevy zebra, graceful long-necked gerenuk, Beisa oryx, Reticulated giraffe, and the blue-shanked Somali ostrich. The trip begins in Nairobi, to spend a night in the shadow of the jagged snow-capped summits of Africa's second highest mountain, Mount Kenya, and on to a place of endless skies, dust-red plains and palm-fringed rivers, Samburu National Reserve.
Mount Kenya National Park attractions include its pristine wilderness, lakes, tarns, glaciers and peaks of great beauty, geological variety, forest, mineral springs, rare and endangered species of animals, high altitude adapted plains game, unique montane and alpine vegetation with 11 species of endemic plants.
Samburu 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 km 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 Ololokwe. This rugged, hostile landscape is noted for all “the big five” and for cheetah. It is also home to animals typical of the drier northern regions.
