Aberdare & Samburu Safari

3 Nights/ 4 Days Aberdare & Samburu Safari View Rates - Book & Save Now!

DESCRIPTION:


4 Days/ 3 Nights Aberdare National Park & Samburu Game Reserve Safari begins and ends in Nairobi. The safari departs Nairobi by road to the central highlands of Kenya for overnight game viewing at a tree hotel within the Aberdare or Mount Kenya National Park.  
Animals abound in the Aberdare National Park/ Mount Kenya National Park includes: Elephant, Buffalo, Giant forest hog and Kenya's indigenous endangered Black Rhino.
Set in the heart of the Aberdare National Park, The Ark is a unique tree lodge with a veranda that overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt lick allowing undisturbed views of wildlife visiting the waterhole.
 
Elephant, rhino, leopard, bushbuck and occasionally an elusive bongo and giant forest hog have been sighted. The other two lodges are The Tree Tops Lodge and the Serena Mountain Tree Lodge.
 
After a night at the Tree Lodge you proceed to the Samburu Game Reserve Samburu National Reserve situated on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in Kenya. This means plenty of water, trees and shade to attract wildlife like elephant, lion, giraffe and zebra from the surrounding savannah plains. Leopards are also regularly spotted.
 
The Reserve is not particularly well–known and is therefore not too crowded - a huge plus in Kenya where so many reserves are often overflowing with tourists. It is often grouped together with the Buffalo Springs and Shaba National Reserves as they lie so close together.
 
After a two Night stay in this great reserve you return back to Nairobi by road.
