Samburu National Reserve: Safaris
With ideas from Expert Africa for tailor-made safaris.
The Samburu National Resrerve is one of Kenya's best-loved wildlife sanctuaries. In complete contrast to the rolling savannahs of the Maasai Mara, Samburu is arid country, its appeal to wildlife (and visitors) deriving from the Ewaso Nyiro river that runs through it - meandering past groves of forked doum palms with their science fiction appearance. Samburu has a wealth of wildlife in a relatively small area - elephants are legion and there are plenty of lions, leopards and cheetahs picking on the grazing antelope, zebra and other species drawn here for water and grazing. Our camps include several with riverside locations and an open-air tented lodge standing on solid rock in the dramatic Kalama Conservancy, just north of the reserve.
