Four Day Safari to Samburu and Aberdares

Samburu is one of the lesser known game reserves of Kenya, but well worth the visit. On the banks of a river, there is plenty of trees and water to attract animals from far and wide. As with the rest of Kenya, anywhere you find an abundance of animals, you will find predators not too far behind.

The beauty of Samburu’s lesser known reputation is the lack of crowds making for a more intimate game experience than some other parks offer.

Soaring mountain ranges give way to plummeting valleys as streams cascade over waterfalls, making Aberdares National Park a landscape lovers paradise. With over 250 species of bird, it is also a haven for bird watching enthusiasts.

Located in the heart of Aberdares National Park, The Ark is known as a “tree hotel”, built on pylons in such a way as not to disturb the animals around the waterhole. Its three decks provide superb vantage points for game viewing around the floodlit waterhole.
