Radio-tracking means you can closely follow them through the Kenyan bush, gaining an insight into their life. Nowhere else in Kenya currently offers you the chance to experience such vivid encounters with these impressive creatures. But the excitement doesn’t end there. At Saruni Samburi you’ll go on safaris, night drives and a guided walk with a traditionally dressed Samburu warrior. In Nairobi you’ll share your hotel with giraffe, zebra and antelope visiting the nearby watering hole.
London – Nairobi
Your overnight flight takes you from the UK to the capital of Kenya, arriving in Nairobi the next morning.
Saruni Rhino Camp
In Nairobi you’ll bard a light aircraft for a flight over the seemingly unending wilderness of Northern Kenya to Saruni Rhino Camp. It is here you’ll have a unique experience – the only one of its kind currently available in Kenya. You’ll be able to track the crucially endangered black rhino in its natural habitat – on foot.
Your guide will radio-track these awesome creatures so you’ll be able to follow them as they forage in the bush; your holiday photographs will certainly be spectacular, and the memories will stay with you for years to come. Saruni Rhino Camp is also situated beside a watering hole, so you’ll be able to watch elephants, impala, oryx, hyenas and any number of exotic birds, without leaving camp. Game drives with experienced rangers will take you to see giraffe, ostrich, antelope and elephants.
Stay: Two nights in a large room in a stone-built, traditional banda cottage at Saruni Rhino Camp.
The wildlife watching doesn’t end with rhino tracking at Saruni Rhino. You’ll transfer to Rhino’s sister camp Saruni Samburi where you’ll be in exactly the right place to see the animals and birds of the Kalama Conservancy. As well as safaris deep into the conservancy’s 200,000 acres, you’ll be able to take night drives and wildlife walks with a traditionally-dressed Samburu warrior who will give you an insight into tracking and how to read the ‘Book of Nature’ whilst showing you a wide range of indigenous creatures. Expect to see elephants, giraffe, waterbuck, impala and lions plus birds and a whole range of smaller animals and astonishing insects.
Stay: Two nights in a villa in Saruni Samburi.
Today you’ll return to Kenya’s capital, but you can still expect to enjoy some dramatic wildlife observation. You’ll be staying at the Ole Sereni, so – as well as experiencing all the contemporary style and amenities of an exclusive, luxury hotel – you’ll have great views over the Nairobi National Park.
You can admire the green and gold hues of this gorgeous reserve from the infinity edge swimming pool whilst watching a procession of animals, including giraffe, zebra, antelope and buffalo as they come down to the hotel’s watering hole to drink and laze on the banks. Then you can wander off to the spa for a little lazing and pampering yourself. The perfect end to a Kenyan safari adventure.
Stay: One night in the Ole Sereni Hotel.
