The Samburu is set in the semi-desert regions of northern Kenya and is where water yields life.
The Ewaso Nyiro river brings in great numbers of wildlife and some species not found elsewhere in Kenya. What makes this place so amazing is the captivating biodiversity and elephants of Samburu. This is one of the best places to find species endemic to northern Kenya: oryx, gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, Grevy's zebra and the palm nut vulture. You may also see lion and leopard, large herds of elephant, cheetah and an occasional pack of African hunting dogs. Going here gives you the chance to see a wide variety of big game including some less common species. The Senguru tribe of Kenya is very beautiful to see and hear. They are semi-nomadic pastoralists who herd mainly cattle but also keep sheep, goats and camels. Every morning, Samburu families take their family herd of cattle to the singing wells where they dig for water to fill up troughs to give water to their cows and goats. Each family owns one well and they sing to their livestock as they bring water up and the cows recognize their family song and come down to their well to be watered. This really is a site to see.
Kenya is THE most stunningly beautiful country in Africa. You will never be disappointed in Kenya, the country is huge, there are so many places to see and you simply cannot see it all in one visit! I am warning you now, expect to keep going back! I do.

Samburu national reserve is the a representation of nature and wildlife at its primeval best! This park offers a wildlife viewing experience unlike no other. The scenery is exceptional and only gets better with the presence of the breathtaking river and pyramidal-looking hills.
The area is one of the least-explored in Kenya and hence, very little human interfer...

Samburu was such a memorable part of our 15 day Kenya/Uganda safari because of its remote location, lack of other tourists, authentic feel due to the proximity of the Samburu tribes, and access to wildlife. We stayed 2 nights, but should have stayed another one or two nights to maximize the experience.
We loved seeing the special animals that do not live in the ...

The name Samburu is of Masai origin, a ‘samburr’ is a traditional leather bag the Masai use for carrying honey and milk. This region is characterized by vast, open landscapes, dried riverbeds (depending on the season of the year) and its red volcanic soil.
Rock outcroppings contrast against the dense woodland vegetation along the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River,...
I prefer active and engaging trips where you come out of a trip with a sense of being part of the area you visit. Visiting local homesteads, trying their cuisine, hiking and local activities like schools.

There is no place I love visiting like the Northern reserves. They offer some of the best scenery and wildlife. Seeing the leopard sleeping on a rock with the sunset at the background was the best sunsets I have ever taken in a long while.
The weather in this area makes it a all year round place to visit.

As I mentioned in my last review of the trip to Buffalo Springs National Reserve, the Samburu National Reserve is just next to it as they are divided by River Ewaso Nyiro, which means brown water, making these reserves sisters. In Samburu National Reserve my friends and I could not believe all the wonders that were associated with this place. It is the very place w...
