Your adventure starts this morning boarding a light aircraft for a flight to the northern frontier and semi-arid region of Kenya Samburu National Park. You will be received and booked into your tented camp along the Uaso Nyiro River in Samburu National Park before setting out on your afternoon game drive.

Day 5: Masai Mara

This is the big cat country, so your chances of seeing several of the big cats are very good. It’s not uncommon to drive very close to a pride of lions dozing beneath the shade of a tree, but you might have to search a bit harder for the smaller leopard who prefers snoozing on higher tree branches. Among the more than 450 species of birds recorded in the Mara, at least 53 of them are raptors. Enjoy early morning and afternoon game drives this day. Accommodation at Mara Sarova game camp (BLD).
