Wild Camel Safari (7 Days)
Day 1: Nairobi / Maralal
After breakfast, depart our Nairobi offices traveling via Nyahururu.Rumuruti to our Maralal Camel Club for overnight in self contained bandas cottages.

Day 2: Camel Trekking / Walking
After breakfast depart with your camel and Morans into the bush. You will ride through the area never quite sure what you will see. It should be remembered that this safari is not primarily a game-viewing safari.

It is one led by and in total harmony with the local Samburu people. Picnic lunch enroute, afternoon arrival at your pre-prepared camp where your cook will be ready to offer you afternoon tea and snacks. Thereafter, an optional guided walk through the bush before dinner and overnight under the stars.
Day 3- 5: Camel Trekking / Walking
Mattresses pad, the locally wooden frames on the camels, and after breakfast you are set and through the bush either hiking or walking as you choose. It is a leisurely pace and you may change from walking to hiking as your prefer. You will pass by Samburu Manyattas that your lead Moran can organize for you to visit. As this is spontaneous, the Moral will discuss with the elders for permission for your entry and you will be asked to pay something towards the family for photography and viewing their homes.
This is not always included in the safari cost and is only a small amount offered as a courtesy. Each day you will have a picnic lunch in the bush, then combine to your next campsite, where your cook will be waiting for you. Greater par of your evening shall be spend inside water and a shower will be erected for you to dust off (depending on water availability).
Day 6: End of Camel Trek
The camel trek ends late morning back at the Clubhouse. Here you will take lunch before walking with your Moran guides into the frontier town of Maralal. The art crafts to see, the Samburu market and a way of life different from other places you might have visited on your holiday.
In the evening, the Morans and their ladies will perform dances for you as entertainment at the club where you will be free to take as many pictures as you want even to join in the dancing if you feel up to it. This night you are in the bandas again and can clean up before your free return transfer in the morning.

Samburu Game Reserve

Area - 833 sq km (the 3 reserves combined)
Distance from Nairobi - 340 km - 5 hours by road.

These three reserves lie adjacent to each other, and are located in the hot, arid northern region of Kenya. The three reserves are in the beautiful and still unspoilt country of the Samburu people. Proud, happy, friendly, they defy the modern world to go about their traditional business and still cherish the customs and colorful ceremonies of their ancestors. Ewaso Nyiro River goes through the three reserves. In fact this river forms the boundary between Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Reserves. Each reserve is run separately.

As the area is so arid, game is concentrated along the banks of the river, making game viewing particularly good.

The reserves are within the land of Samburu cousins of the Masai and contain wildlife species rarely found else where including Grevy’s zebra, and the long necked gerenuk.

Other wildlife in the reserves: lion, herds of elephant, reticulated giraffe, leopard vervet and blue monkey, and Beisa oryx. The leopards are a very frequent sight in Samburu.

Bird life: Marshal eagle, pygny falcon, blue-legged Somali ostrich, hornbill and Egyptian geese.
