Cheetah Safari Cheetah Safari

7 Nights

A traditional seven-night safari visiting Samburu, home to unique wildlife, followed by the Rift Valley Lakes.

The final destination is the Masai Mara where vast numbers of plains game and spectacular big cats abide.

This itinerary starts in the Aberdares Range followed by Samburu, home to some of the most unique wildlife in Kenya and a host of birds. Your stay is at the deluxe Ashnil Samburu Camp, spread out along the shady banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, under a thick stand of doum palms and acacia trees that are a feature of the area.
