The Rugged Three: Samburu, Shaba, & Buffalo Springs National Reserves

Truly off the path because it’s virtually cut off to all but those with access to a 4 wheel drive vehicle or an aircraft, it’s wonderfully free from the crowded traffic of the Masai Mara.

  • Sarova Shaba Game Lodge: Regions # 1 game lodge

  • Shaba National Reserve: Home to Kenya’s ‘northern five’; oryx, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, Grevy’s zebra, and lesser kudu

  • Samburu National Reserve: With the Uaso Nyiro River running through the reserve, a large number of game animals flock to the banks, home to a massive population of Nile crocodile. The reserve is renowned for its rare species unique to the park, most notably the long necked gerenuk, Somali ostrich, & Beisa onyx.

___________________________

Lake Nakuru National Park

Small in size but high in wildlife, Nakuru is the most famous of the Great Rift Valley lakes, and the ideal stopover en-route to the Masai’s great migration. Perhaps most famous as the home to a shifting population of over one million flamingos, it’s also Kenya’s first and largest rhino sanctuary; sightings of both black and white rhino almost guaranteed!

  • Sarova Lion Hill Lodge: Region's #1 rated game lodge
  • Wildlife: rhinos, best chance to spot elusive leopards, lions (often in the trees!), hippos, Rothschild’s giraffe, Colobus monkey, 450 species of birds

All cooled off, we’ll finally arrive in Mostar, most famous for a beautiful Ottoman-style bridge which spans the Neretva river in the historic center of the city. “Stari Most” frames the colorful buildings and mosques that tumble down the cliffs of Old Town as the river rushes underneath it.
