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

This is a unique and adventurous itinerary that offers the chance to experience a real off-the-beaten-track holiday in Kenya, taking in some of the country's most scenic areas, from breath-taking views over the Mathews Range to the rolling hills of Lewa, and phenomenal game viewing experienced in a vehicle, on foot, and even by horseback before finishing in Samburu where you will have the opportunity to track the rare and endangered rhino.

  1. Fly to Nairobi

    Your holiday begins as you land in Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi where you will connect with your charter flight to the Laikipia area in northern Kenya. You will spend the next three nights in a conservancy which offers not only spectacular game viewing, but plenty of activities too.

    Your holiday continues as you are privately transferred by charter flight to Nyasura. Here you will meet your guides and be briefed about Karisia Walking Safaris where you will spend the next three nights on a mobile walking safari with camels. Each day will bring new landscapes where you will come across sacred ground and has been used for a millennium by those seeking shelter, journey through rich Acacia bush, and even come across plains game and potentially even some predators such as lion and hyena along the way. You camp will be set up for you prior to your arrival and each day will end with a sundowner in hand followed by a warming and hearty bush meal.

    Accommodation: Karisia Walking Safaris (3 nights)

    Today you depart from Karisia Walking Safaris and will be privately transferred by aircraft to Saruni Samburu where you will spend the next three nights.

  5. Days 10-13: Northern Kenya

    Your holiday comes to an end in Samburu and at the unique and adventurous camp of Saruni Rhino.

Spend your days tracking these threatened animals on foot and actively contribute to the protection of an iconic animal species. Spend the rest of your time enjoying the vast and beautiful Samburu landscape, with plenty of birdwatching opportunities, cultural experiences such as a visit to the ‘singing wells’, or simply relaxing in camp before you have to head home.
