This is one of the most famous and among the best Kenya safaris. It is a safari package that shows you several different natural habitat in one trip. Weather allowing, Mount Kenya will be visible on your way to Samburu National reserve, the semi-arid habit.

Wildlife abound in this relatively thorny countryside, with some being endemic here. From Samburu, you next stop is Lake Nakuru, home of the flamingo. The lake is a sanctuary to the endangered black rhinos and the white rhinos too. But in addition, lots of other wildlife share this park.

Without a doubt, adding a walk after the long drives from Samburu makes this trip one of your best Kenya safaris. A walk after a drive in and from Nakuru and then to Naivasha will definitely be more than welcome. No better place to do that than in Crescent island or hell’s gate in Naivasha.

It is from here that you will drive through the rift valley to Masai Mara, the epitome of your safari. Masai Mara has already been enlisted as a wonder of the world.
