3 Day Tours


Best 3 Day excursions


Want to get away from the crowds and see a different slice of Africa? Come North with us to Samburu, Shaba and Buffalo Springs Reserves. Along the way, we’ll pass the country’s tallest peak, snow-capped Mt. Kenya. In Samburu, you’ll find abundant wildlife as the reserve features plenty of the big cats and over 900 elephants. Neighboring Shaba and Buffalo Springs offer a dramatic choice of scenic terrain – from riverine forests to old lava flows to marshes and springs. There’s so much variety of wildlife and landscape awaiting you on this short 3-day adventure, so give yourself a treat. Contact us and we’ll book your own private tour right on the spot.

There’s something about Samburu National Reserve that our guests find calming, even in the midst of all the wildlife. Perhaps it’s the fact that Samburu is somewhat off the beaten path, so you’ll enjoy a wild game park with fewer tourists. And you’ll be treated to the sight of such unique creatures as Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk and the Somali Ostrich.

Your safari also includes visits to neighboring reserves – Buffalo Springs features a volcanic landscape broken up by forest and marsh. At Shaba National Reserve you’ll find a greener landscape than Samburu with forests, woodlands and even the iconic Shaba Hill Volcano. Combined, these three parks are a visual feast of scenic terrain and wildlife. And should you have any favorites, let us know so we can help personalize your African Safari.

All-Inclusive. Your 3-day Samburu, Shaba, Buffalo Springs safari includes park entrance fees, game drives, accommodations and meals. Umbato Safaris always offers a choice of accommodations. Depending on your budget and style choose from economy, comfort or luxury safari lodges or tented camps.

Transportation to the parks and game viewing will be in a private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep – this vehicle is the safari standard with its higher seating and rugged all-wheel drive.
