South Africa - 10 Days
Sweetwaters Game Sanctuary
Day 1: Nairobi to Sweetwaters Game Sanctuary
At your Nairobi hotel or at the airport you will be met by a representative of Albatros Kenya and introduced to your driver/guide who will accompany you throughout the trip. You will then be driven to Sweetwaters Game Sanctuary, a drive of approximately four hours, where you will spend the night at Sweetwaters Tented Camp. Here you will experience a charming blend of under-canvas ambiance and safari luxury in a sheltered oasis beside around a water hole and set in the pristine calm of the private Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
Your game viewing experience will commence this afternoon. Ol Pejeta conservancy is home to all of the ‘Big Five’ members, and being one of only four private game conservancies found in Kenya, the area has a higher wildlife concentration than any of Kenya`s national parks, making it perfect for intimate game-viewing experiences.

Day 2: Sweetwaters to Samburu National Reserve
Today we will rise early for breakfast before transferring to Samburu National Reserve with an en route game drive. As you enter the reserve, you will be able to see two beautiful mountains, Koitogor and Ololokwe, which form the perfect background to your safari. Large herds of elephants comprise some of the reserve’s large and diverse wildlife population, which also includes numerous big cats, reticulated giraffes, buffalo and gerenuks.
Ewaso Nyiro River is the main attraction for wildlife here, but many animals can also be seen in the acacia trees, river forest, thorn trees and grasslands. In the late afternoon you will arrive at Samburu Lodge, which has been inspired by the architecture of the indigenous Samburu tribe and blends into its natural environment by making full use of the local building materials. This will be your home for the next two nights. From your private veranda you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the languid river and the wildlife it attracts - which includes the numerous crocodiles that make these waters their home.

Day 3: Samburu National Reserve
Sleep in or rise early today, but if you want to see the animals at their most active we recommend taking advantage of the cool early morning to maximise your game viewing experience. As you continue with your game drive through this wildlife rich reserve, watch out for the unique northern species, only found north of the equator, which include the helmeted guinea fowl, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, Grevy’s zebra and Beisa oryx.
We will seek relief from the hot African sun back at the lodge where we will spend the afternoon relaxing. As the day cools, you can return to the reserve for one last game drive and enjoy a sundowner at a beautiful location, before returning to Samburu Lodge for an opulent dinner before retiring to your room.
