6 Days Kenya Samburu Aberdare Nakuru Masai Mara Road Safari in the 6 Days Kenya Safaris begins with a visit to Samburu National Reserve – a not very well-known, but definitely worth a visit.

Samburu National Reserve is situated on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in Kenya.

This means plenty of water, trees and shade to attract wildlife like elephant, lion, giraffe and zebra from the surrounding savannah plains. Leopards are also regularly spotted.

The reserve is not particularly well-known and is therefore not too crowded – a huge plus in Kenya where so many reserves are often overflowing with tourists.

It is often grouped together with the Buffalo Springs and Shaba National Reserves as they lie so close together.

Our next stop in the 6 Days Kenya Samburu Aberdare Nakuru Masai Mara Road Safari is the Aberdare National Park – created in 1950 to protect the forested slopes and moors of the Aberdare Mountains.

The park has elephant, lion, rhino, black leopard and the beautiful but elusive bongo antelope. Both Treetops and The Ark are built above the ground beside floodlit waterholes with salt licks.

Visitors must book in advance and cannot make their own way to the lodges in private vehicles.

Instead check-in is at the Aberdare Country club for The Ark and the Outspan Hotel for Treetops, from where guests are bussed to their respective lodges.

Treetops is one of Kenya’s most famous hotels – this is where British Princess Elizabeth was informed that she had become Queen in 1952 on news of her father’s death.

Lake Nakuru National Park – renowned as a bird sanctuary with over 400 bird species, including huge flocks of flamingoes and many other water birds.

It is an excellent park for wildlife spotting and is home to many water-loving animals such as hippos and waterbucks.

Other animals present in the park include waterbucks, warthogs, impalas, buffalo, Rothschild giraffes, elands, endangered black rhinos, white rhinos and, occasionally leopards.

The park has the largest concentration of African lions, including the black-maned lion. Bird-life is as plentiful as wildlife at the Masai Mara, which boasts over 400 different bird’s species.
