Samburu National Reserve

Introduction

The Samburu National Reserve is a small park covering an area of approx 105 sq.kms, located 325kms located north, northeast of Nairobi halfway to Lake Turkana.

Samburu is a lesser known safari destination and is less crowded than other Kenyan parks due to its more remote location. The area is arid and largely semi-desert, with a unique landscape of rounded and rugged hills and undulating plains.

Samburu has a large concentration of game including some species only found north of the equator such as the Beisa oryx, the Long Necked Gerenuk, Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy's Zebra and the Blue Shanked Somali Ostrich. Other wildlife found in the area include, the 3 cats lion, leopard and cheetah (Leopard is often spotted.), as well as small herds of elephant, buffalo and plains game.

Samburu also offers excellent bird watching with over 350 species being recorded in the area.

Ewaso Ngiro River is the lifeblood of the Samburu National Reserve, with large concentrations of wildlife close to and in the river. It separates Samburu from Buffalo Springs National Reserve and most safaris cross over and visit Buffalo Springs as well.

The region is home to the Samburu People and a safari in the area will also provide you with the perfect opportunity to learn more about their culture, lifestyle and how tourism is affecting these semi-nomadic pastoralists.
