This 5 Days Kenya Safaris Samburu Aberdare Lake Nakuru Tour safari offers spectacular wildlife game viewing, cultural activities in Samburu Game Reserve.

Samburu game reserve is renowned for its rare species of animals unique to the park, namely: the long necked gerenuk, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe and Beisa onyx.

The elusive Kenya leopard is often known to visit the park, especially in the evenings.

Lake Nakuru National Park you get to see huge flocks of flamingos, waterbucks, warthogs, impalas, buffalo, Rothschild giraffes, elands, endangered black rhinos, white rhinos and, occasionally, leopards.

A large herd of hippos have a territory in the northern part of the lake, making interesting for game viewing.
