Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The main season is in January and February, when the weather is hottest and driest. At this time, the animals in the wildlife parks tend to congregate more around the watercourses, making them easier to spot.

Northern and eastern Kenya temperatures vary from highs of up to 40°C during the day to less than 20°C at night. Rainfall in this area is sparse and, when it does occur, is often in the form of violent storms. July is usually the driest month, and November the wettest.

Itinerary

Embark on short but unique adventure in Northern Kenya staying in two stunning properties offering a true African wilderness experience in a prolific wildlife area. Enjoy twice daily game drives, bush walks and the chance to track the endangered black rhino.

  1. Fly to Samburu via Nairobi

  2. Days 1-4: Samburu National Reserve

    Your holiday begins as you fly to Nairobi and connect, via the domestic airport, for Samburu. Start your wilderness experience in a concession bordering the wildlife rich Samburu Reserve, a celebrated elephant sanctuary and an exhilarating safari experience.

    Stay for three nights at Saruni Samburu, a deluxe lodge perched high up on a hill with stunning views out over the reserve. Spend your days at Saruni Samburu on day and night drives with the experienced Samburu guides and trackers, get closer to nature on guided bush walks, or learn more about the local Samburu Warrior culture and history with cultural visits and ancient rock art. If you are craving some down time then indulge in a body treatment or massage from the onsite Saburu Wellbeing Space or cool off in one of two infinity pools.

    Explore the Samburu National Reserve and encounter vast herds of elephant, large numbers of rare Grevy's Zebra and oryx, as well as many resident big cats and other predators.

    Accommodation: Saruni Samburu (3 nights)

  3. Days 4-6: Northern Kenya

    After three magical nights at Saruni Samburu it is on to Saruni Rhino where you have the remarkable opportunity to embark on one of the first rhino tracking experiences in East Africa. Join highly trained rangers equipped with GPS transmitters in their search for the endangered black rhino, a truly unforgettable experience. Using the GPS you will drive through the reserve in a 4x4 with the trained tracker and guide, when the monitor indicates a close proximity to the rhino, guests will follow the signal on foot and have the adrenaline fuelled opportunity to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat.

    Accommodation: Saruni Rhino (2 nights)

  4. Flight home from Samburu via Nairobi
