Special Five Safari (8 days)

This safari will show you the strange and out-of-the-ordinary species of northern Kenya. It’s designed for the person who is not just after the cats and the Great Migration, but loves remote areas and landscape, and wants to see new species and places that are off-the-beaten-track. Apart from Samburu’s Special Five – reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, Somali ostrich, and beisa oryx – you’ll also be able to see white and black rhino and the rare bongo at Aberdare.
