Transfer in Nairobi & Fly to Samburu
Welcome to Kenya. You'll arrive into Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, where you'll transfer to Wilson Airport for a domestic flight to Samburu, home to Samburu National Reserve and an abundance of wildlife.
You'll be staying at Saruni Samburu, a luxury property comprised of six eco-chic villas with spectacular views of the Kalama Conservancy and Mount Kenya. As the only lodge in over 200,000 acres of unspoiled wilderness teeming with wildlife to explore exclusively, you'll be guided by Samburu warriors passionate about their land and culture. A safari experience at Saruni Samburu is intimate and truly exceptional.

During the next two days, you’ll enjoy morning and evening game drives in the Kalama Conservancy, Buffalo Springs National Park and Samburu National Park.
You can expect to see the Big Five, giant herds of Samburu elephants coming to drink at local waterholes, leopards making their lairs on rocky outcrops and packs of endangered African wild dogs exploring the plains below the lodge. The area is also home to rare endemic species, such as the Samburu five: Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx, Somali ostrich and gerenuk.
