Tour Location

This itinerary traverses Nairobi City and The Great Rift Valley; Lake Naivasha and Samburu regions.

Nairobi Situated in along the Nairobi River in beautiful Kenya, the capital of Nairobi is East Africa's most cosmopolitan city. It serves as an excellent starting point for African safari trips around Kenya. Nairobi is Africa’s 4th largest city and is a vibrant and exciting place, and although it has developed a reputation which keeps tourist visits brief, there are some fascinating attractions: its cafe culture, unbridled nightlife, the National Museum, the Karen Blixen Museum and most notably just 20 minutes from the city centre wild lions and buffalo roam in the world’s only urban game reserve. Make sure you pay a visit to the elephant orphanage operated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Karen Country Club Golf Course Karen Country Club was founded in 1937 and boasts being one of the oldest golf clubs in Kenya. The country club features an 18 hole golf course, restaurant, spa and nail bar and accommodation facilities that overlook the second hole of the golf course.                                                 Giraffe Centre The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (A.F.E.W. Kenya) also known as the Giraffe Centre is a non-governmental, non-profit making organization, which was founded by Betty and Jock Leslie-Melville in 1979. This was in a bid to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe, which had lost its natural habitat in Western Kenya to agriculture and there were only 130 left in the wild. Funds were raised and 4 herds of the Rothschild giraffes were moved to 4 parks namely Lake Nakuru National Park, Mwea Game Reserve, Ruma National Park and Nasalot Game Reserve. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick D.B.E, in honor of the memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the DSWT claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation. Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and it's wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa. To date the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished it's long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in care. Samburu National Reserve Resting on the banks of the Ewaso Ng'iro River and neighbouring the Buffalo Springs National Park, Samburu National Reserve is remote, hot and arid. The reserve spans over 165 square kilometres of spectacularly scenic landscape featuring rugged hills, undulating plains and riverine forests. The park is home to abundant wildlife including a variety of rare species such as the reticulated giraffe, the long necked gerenuk, Somali ostrich, Grevy's Zebra and Beisa Oryx. Samburu was one of the homes of 'Elsa the Lioness', star of the best selling book and award-winning movie 'Born Free'. Visitors can enjoy viewing over 900 elephants, a variety of predators, and over 450 bird species. Lake Naivasha Lake Naivasha is the highest of the Great Rift Valley Lakes and despite having no outlet, it is one of only two Rift Valley freshwater lakes. This beautiful lake is fringed by papyrus and acacia trees, a unique geologic landscape and supports a vast array of over 450 bird species. It serves as the main drinking hole for wildlife in the area such as zebra, eland, hippo, waterbuck, buffalo and much more. Visitors can look forward to excellent game viewing, intriguing night safaris, boating excursions around the lake as well as to Crescent Island for spectacular bird watching opportunities. Other popular activities include: guided nature walks, horse riding, village visits and tours to neighbouring national parks. Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort The Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort enjoys one of the most spectacular views in all of Africa, just an hour-and-half's drive from Nairobi. It is perched on the side of the Eburu Escarpment, overlooking the glistening waters of Lake Naivasha and the sweeping floors of the Great Rift Valley of Kenya. With an 18-hole golf championship course, conference facilities, Adventurers' club activities, swimming pool, activities including horse riding to Eburu forest, mountain biking, team building, this hotel is a must do for all. Accommodation is offered in hotel rooms, classy Longonot Villas and private chalets. Hell's Gate National Park Located northwest of Nairobi, south of Lake Naivasha, Hell's Gate National Park gets its name from its pair of massive red tinged cliffs which frame its natural hot geysers. The spectacular scenery, complete with rock towers, volcanoes, and geysers with plumes of geothermal steam, is dominated by these sheer cliffs. Visitors can look forward to a wide variety of activities such as: biking through this beautiful landscape, exploring the Njorowa Gorges, discovering two extinct volcanoes – Olkaira and Hobley’s, and camping under the sparkling Kenyan night sky. Popular activities include: walking safaris, mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking and game viewing. Commonly spotted wildlife include: giraffe, zebra, eland, gazelle, buffalo, zebras, hartebeests, baboons and over 100 bird species. Crescent Island Game Sanctuary There is just one “Crescent Island Game Park”. Located on Lake Naivasha, Kenya in the Great Rift Valley. It is one of the most beautiful parks in Kenya and is Naivasha’s best-kept secret. Guides are on a first come first serve basis, for whom there is no charge, but they should be given a tip. Surrounded by water, it is actually a peninsula and is accessible by boat from East or West as well as by road. From the top of the hill, there is a 360-degree view across the Lake from Longonot to Hell’s Gate to the Mau Escarpment to Eburu and onto the Aberdares. Walking along the ridge in the golden hour before sunset whilst watching the animals grazing with the water shimmering beyond, is what Africa is all about.
