8 Days Kenya Sweetwaters Samburu Aberdares Nakuru Mara Road Safari under the 8 Days Kenya Safaris takes us to Sweetwaters Game Reserve is 90,000-acre private ranch with magnificent views across the plains to the snow capped peaks of Mount Kenya.

Its popular waterhole is floodlit by night, providing excellent and secluded rarely seen game viewing. Game drives at Sweetwaters are indeed a pleasure.

Game viewing may also take the form of game walks accompanied by a resident Naturalist, game rides on horseback, Camel riding, night game drives and “bush” lunches or dinners.

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.

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

Aberdare National 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.

Our next destination on the 8 Days Kenya Sweetwaters Samburu Aberdares Nakuru Mara Road Safari is Nakuru which is arguably the most renowned among Kenya’s Rift Valley lakes and one of the best known African parks in the entire world, with its alkaline waters fringed at times by more than one million flamingos.

Nakuru is also the big success story for rhino. There are some 60 black rhinos here, as well as 40 white, though it is the white that you see mostly as the black are much more reclusive.

Masai Mara widely considered to be Africa’s greatest wildlife reserve. The Mara comprises 200 sq miles of open plains, woodlands and riverine forest.

Contiguous with the plains of the Serengeti, the Mara is home to a breathtaking array of life. The vast grassland plains are scattered with herds of Zebra, Giraffe, Gazelle, and Topi.
