Angama Safari

Masai Mara,Laikipia & Samburu

Journey north of the Maasai Mara and up through the Great Rift Valley to discover flamingo-covered lakes, dramatic landscapes and ancient cultures.

Getting There

Kenya’s vast northern region is easily accessible by plane from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport. Whether at the start or end of your safari there are many daily scheduled flights available as well as the option to travel via private flight. There is a good network of scheduled flights between Northern Kenya and the Maasai Mara which allows for onward connectivity.

Highlights

Samburu National Park

A stark contrast to some of the more verdant reserves in Kenya, the arid landscape of Samburu National Park brings a beauty of its own to any East African safari. It is here travellers are able to experience the deeply rich culture of the Samburu and get the opportunity to view rare endemic species such as the Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, beisa oryx and reticulated giraffe.

Mount Kenya

As the second highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kenya, dominates over the Laikipia Plateau. A more technical climb than that of her big sister Mount Kilimanjaro to the south in Tanzania, the four-day adventure to summit Mount Kenya is not for the faint-hearted.

The Laikipia Plateau

This region rolls out from the foot of Mount Kenya, and is home to some of the most beautiful and well conserved private tracts of land in Kenya. Often it will be just you out on safari – it is rare to see another vehicle for hours at a time – with Mount Kenya always watching over this lovely wilderness, home to many endemic species’.
