7 Days Samburu Lake Nakuru Lake Naivasha Masai Mara Safari courtesy of the 7 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.

Lake Nakuru national park where we may view some flamingos thrive in the salinity of the Lake. The park is dominated by a gentle undulating terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation.

Twenty seven percent (27%) of the park is composed of the Lake Nakuru waters. The park was declared a rhino sanctuary in 1983.The Rhino stocking programme which ensued received white rhinos from South Africa.

There are endangered black and  White Rhino as well as other wildlife species in the lake.

The Lake Naivasha and its surrounds are rich in natural bounty, and the fertile soils and water supply have made this one of Kenya’s prime agricultural regions.

Much of the lake is surrounded by forests of the yellow barked Acacia Xanthophloea, known as the yellow fever tree. These forests abound with bird life, and Naivasha is known as a world class birding destination.

Giraffes wander among the acacia, Buffalo wallow in the swamps and Colobus monkeys call from the treetops while the Lakes large hippo populations sleep the day out in the shallows.

The Masai Mara Game Reserve – Kenya’s most famous and finest game sanctuary. The Mara also offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here.

On this 7 Days Samburu Lake Nakuru Lake Naivasha Masai Mara Safari you will most likely see the Big Five- lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard, and elephant. Not to mention numerous plain animals.
