Embark on an 8-day adventure starting in Nairobi, Kenya, with game-viewing drives during your stays at three game reserves. Stay at the Samburu Game Reserve, which has its own indigenous wildlife unique to the region; the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, which hosts all the members of the "Big Five" and East Africa's largest black rhino sanctuary; and Masai Mara Game Reserve, where a myriad species of game make their home. Also, enjoy the serenity of a lake lodge near Lake Elementaita for a night and view the resident wildlife. Guaranteed departures, starting from $2,150 per person, land only.
Day 1 – Arrive Nairobi

Day 2 – Nairobi/Samburu
After breakfast, drive to Samburu Game Reserve. Arrive for lunch at your lodge/camp at the Reserve. The tranquil Uaso Nyiro River, flowing through Shaba and Samburu, attracts a wide number of rare wildlife and provides a natural habitat for crocodile. Long necked gerenuk, Gravy’s zebra and reticulated giraffe are species not found in the less arid areas to the south. Elephant seek solace and contentment in the shallow waters of this wide sauntering river, fringed with acacia, dum palms and tamarind, which, together with Buffalo Springs, supports a large variety of African mammals, with cheetah and leopard being particularly well represented. The Reserve has its own indigenous wildlife unique to the region, including the gerenuk, Somali ostrich and the endangered grey’s zebra. Enjoy an afternoon game drive and return to the lodge at sunset. (Samburu Game Lodge/Simba Lodge/Larsen’s Camp) (B/L/D)

Afternoon, game drives and a visit to the rescued chimpanzee and black rhino sanctuaries in this privately owned 24,000-acre ranch with magnificent views across the wildlife-studded plains to the view of the snowcapped peaks of Mount Kenya. Host to all the members of the “Big Five” (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard), the conservancy has a higher wildlife-to-area ratio than any Kenyan national park and is at the forefront of the Kenyan conservancy program. The conservancy boasts the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, hosts the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya, and shelters large numbers of rare and endangered species.
