This is the only park where we find the famous “Kamunyak” – the Miracle Lioness that adapted the baby Oryx.

While still here, we will have the opportunity to see eye to eye with the Wild dogs plus over 450 birding species hence a birders paradise destination.

In the same fashion, this is the only park where we find the five birding species categorized as vulnerable.

These are African Darter, Great Egret, White-headed Vulture, Martial Eagle, and the Yellow-billed Ox-pecker.

Like that’s not all, also critically endangered species under CITIES – Pancake tortoise (malacochersus thornier) is in the reserve.

We will be spending 2 Nights at the Samburu National Park with accommodation at Samburu Sopa Lodge located right at the heart of the park- up the cliff hence an excellent game viewing.

Our Next Safari destination will be Lake Nakuru National Park, which lies on the floor of the Great Rift Valley Lake.

We will be driving past the Coffee plantations with a stopover at the Equator line where you’ll have a chance to test the law of gravity.

The tour then continues to the floor of The great rift valley (Lake Nakuru National Park) which happens to be the only park in East Africa that hosts a larger number of both black and white rhino.

Similarly, the park also hosts a wide variety of other different species of wildlife that call this park their home.

We will be staying here for one night at Lake Nakuru Lodge, which is also located right at the heart of the Park.
