5 Day/4 Night Samburu and Ol-Pejeta Drive-in Safari


Your exciting Kenya Safari will combine two prime wildlife destinations, each of which offers visitors an exceptional game-viewing experience.

You will be spending 2 nights in Samburu Game Reserve in Northern Kenya, which is home to both the Big Five and the Northern Five, a collection of very rare animals that are only found in this part of Kenya. After Samburu you will transfer to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, situated in Central Kenya. Ol Pejeta is a private not-for-profit conservancy dedicated to conservation and eco-tourism, and offers visitors an exceptional safari experience in the lap of luxury.

Day 1: Nairobi - Samburu Game Reserve

This morning your Kenya Safari adventure will get off to an early start as you are picked up at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (or your Nairobi Hotel if you are already in the country) by your driver/guide. Your drive to Samburu Game Reserve takes about five and a half hours and you will arrive in time for lunch at your lodge. After lunch you will have a little time to settle into your accommodation at Samburu Game Lodge before setting out on an afternoon game drive. Most afternoon game drives last around 3 hours, depending on what amazing sightings you may come across, and you should be back in camp in time to freshen up for dinner.
Dinner and Accommodation in Samburu Game Lodge

Day 2: Samburu Game Reserve

We suggest that you take advantage of the early morning game drive today; this is the best time of day to spot animals on the move. Besides the Big Five, be on the lookout for the Northern Five - the Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy's Zebra, Beisa Oryx (beautiful long straight horns!), Somali Ostrich and the very striking long-necked Gerenuk. Between your morning and afternoon game drives you can relax around the lovely pool and Jacuzzi or treat yourself to a massage at the Spa, or do some bird watching around the lodge.

Day 3: Samburu Game Reserve - Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Today you will transfer to Ol Pejeta, arriving in time for lunch at Serena Sweetwaters Camp, your luxury home for the next two nights. After lunch explore the Camp and prepare for your afternoon game drive in this outstanding Big Five conservancy.
Dinner and Accommodation in Sweetwaters Serena Camp

Day 4: Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Today you have the entire day to enjoy the many attractions offered by the conservancy. These include the largest Rhino sanctuary in East Africa, where you are assured of close encounters with these critically endangered animals. Ol Pejeta also has Kenya's only Chimpanzee sanctuary and you have an excellent chance of seeing a wide variety of wildlife during morning and afternoon game drives. In between, relax around the pool or do some bird watching from your private veranda.
Dinner and Accommodation in Sweetwaters Serena Camp

Day 5: Ol Pejeta Conservancy - Nairobi

After a final breakfast at the camp you will bid farewell to your hosts and new friends, and commence the drive back to Nairobi, with drop-off at the airport or a city hotel. We would also be happy to arrange a farewell dinner (for your own account) at one of Nairobi's most popular restaurants before we drop you off at the airport for your flight home.

Serena Sweetwaters Camp, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Nanyuki

Serena Sweetwaters Camp has always been a favourite destination for travellers who are looking for a brilliant safari experience without having to forego life's little luxuries. After a recent 5-Star refurbishment, and the opening of the new 'Morani Wing', Sweetwaters camp is even more fabulous!

Serena Sweetwaters Camp is nestled around a water hole on the Ol Pejeta private conservancy, and all the luxury tents have a wonderful view out over the Laikipia plains, against the backdrop of distant Mount Kenya. All the spacious tented en-suite rooms feature canvas walls and solid floors, built under thatched roofs, to offer an authentic East African safari ambiance without sacrificing any luxury touches. Each tent has a private veranda overlooking the water hole and they are positioned to offer every guest their privacy.

A great deal of thought has gone into ensuring that the decor is appealing to the modern discerning traveller, without losing sight of the fact that you find yourself 'under canvas' in the middle of the African wilderness.

The newly opening Morani Wing (which is named after Morani - the first orphaned Black Rhino that was brought to the conservancy back in 1989) takes Serena Sweetwater's luxury and guest service to a new level. The new tents are very spacious, impeccably furnished and have added extras like coffee/tea making facilities, shaving mirrors, hairdryers and even internet connectivity. The new wing offer double, twin, and triple tents, as well as one deluxe tent equipped to accommodate the physically challenged.

The public areas have also been totally revamped and moved to beautifully appointed tented structures that now house reception, the guest shop, dining room, lounge and bar. Serena Hotels group, and Sweetwaters Camp are dedicated to bringing the magic of the African wilderness to all visitors, without sacrificing the environment, and Sweetwaters Camp was awarded a Silver Eco-rating for their commitment to promoting responsible eco-tourism.
