Itinerary Family Safari Special
DAY 1 – Arrival
Transfer from Nairobi International Airport to the guesthouse in a quiet suburb of the capital. Please arrange your flight times with us. We will also be happy to book the flights for you.
DAY 2 – Lake Baringo
The family safari adventure begins! Immediately after a delicious breakfast, the first drive takes us through the spectacular Rift Valley. We continue past Lake Nakuru to Lake Baringo, our destination for the next two days. There are picturesque islands in the middle of the freshwater lake and the waters are populated by crocodiles and hippos. You can get a closer look at them during a boat trip out onto the lake, but sightings are also possible from your accommodation directly on the shores of the lake. Lake Baringo is not only home to hippos and crocodiles, over 450 bird species of the 1,200 species native to Kenya can also be found on this lake. The semi-nomadic Pokot tribe, a pastoralist and cultivating people, can also be found on the shores of the lake.
We spend 2 nights at Robert’s Camp on the shores of the lake.
DAY 3 – Safari at Lake Bogoria
Today we take you to one of the most beautiful and spectacular lakes in the Rift Valley, Lake Bogoria. The blue-green algae in the water of the lake attract thousands and thousands of flamingos in search of food. On some days there are so many that the shores of the lake shimmer pink. But other bird species such as the sacred ibis, ostrich or grey crowned crane are also among the lake’s visitors. On favourable days, a wide variety of birds of prey such as ospreys can be observed. Gazelles, zebras, buffaloes, impalas and baboons also line the banks of the Bogoria. Another rare resident of the lake is the mighty Greater Kudu. With its spiralling, magnificently shaped horns, it makes an imposing appearance and with a bit of luck we will come across it. A natural spectacle not to be forgotten can be found on the western shore. The geysers and hot springs located there round off the day perfectly. A wonderful start to our family safari.
DAY 4 – Boat trip on Lake Baringo
In the morning, we take a boat trip on the species-rich Lake Baringo. In the middle of Kenya’s birdwatching paradise, we go on a discovery tour for crocodiles and hippos. After lunch, we continue our journey to the Rhino Watch Lodge. Here we will be accommodated in luxurious safari tents for the next five nights.
DAY 5 – Solio Game Reserve
We have reached the halfway point of our family safari itinerary. Today it takes us to the Solio Game Reserve, just a few minutes away. In this fenced and private park, the protection of black rhinos is a top priority. It is therefore probably the best place to observe these animals. Other animal species can also be seen in the Solio Game Reserve. Enjoy the local wildlife with elephants and buffaloes as well as zebras, giraffes, oryxes, antelopes, Thompson’s gazelles, impalas, waterbucks and warthogs. The park is also home to several leopards, lions and cheetahs. At lunchtime, we have a picnic in the shade and close to the herds of animals. Dinner will be at the lodge with a marvellous view of Mount Kenya. Let yourself be spoilt by the chef’s culinary skills.
DAY 6 – Giraffe walk
You have the morning at leisure at the lodge. In the afternoon we set off to visit a small private reserve just 15 minutes from the lodge. During our game drive you can take the opportunity to see and photograph giraffes, zebras and antelopes.
DAY 7 – The Aberdare National Park
Today a safari takes us to Aberdare National Park, the park offers a variety of wildlife and ecosystems. During our safari we marvel at one of Africa’s last intact rain shelter areas in the middle of the mountain range, then on to the dense bamboo forests, which then give way to extensive moorlands. Some of the animals to be spotted are the forest elephant, the buffalo, the giant forest hog and also some of the big cats, such as the leopard. The well-known black rhino also has a large population in Aberdare National Park. Birdwatchers are also well catered for on this day, as 250 species are represented here.
DAY 8 – Safari in the Ol Pejeta Game Reserve
This mosaic of grasslands, wooded grasslands, acacia forests and evergreen thickets stretches over more than 350 square kilometres. During our safari you will have the opportunity to discover an amazing variety of wildlife. The park is home to black and white rhinos in the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa and non-native chimpanzees can also be spotted in the chimpanzee reserve, a project of the Jane Goodall Foundation. All the Big Five and Grevy’s zebras can also be found there. Ol Pejeta Game Reserve is also known for having one of the densest predator populations in Kenya. All these animals, the breathtaking nature and the views over the open plains make this family safari day of our itinerary something very special.
This is our last night at Rhino Watch Safari Lodge.
DAY 9 & 10 – Safari in Samburu National Park
After breakfast, we head towards Samburu National Park. The drive leads along the contours of Mount Kenya to a semi-arid and rugged area. Around its lifeline, on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River, a rich variety of flora and fauna has developed. Enlivened by huge crocodile populations, the national park is famous for some rare species, such as the Grevyszebra, the Gerenuk, the Beisa Onyx or the reticulated giraffe. It is also an ideal place to observe lions, cheetahs and leopards. The water of the river attracts a wide variety of animals from the surrounding savannah plains to drink, bathe and feed. Birdwatchers also have a wonderful day, as the river basin is teeming with around 365 bird species.
We will spend two nights in the middle of Samburu National Park. The Elephant Bedroom Camp is located directly on the banks of the river.
On the last evening of the family safari, we will organise a small farewell party for you and your relatives.
