Samburu national reserve derives its name from the Samburu people of Kenya who have lived in the area for hundreds years. The reserve's topography is mainly open Savannah (grassland) with clusters of acacia trees, forest, thorn trees and grassland vegetation. The game reserve is renowned for its rare species of animals unique to the park, namely: the long necked gerenuk, Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe and Beisa onyx. The elusive Kenya leopard is often known to visit the park, especially in the evenings.
Visit the local Samburu villages where you get a chance to interact with the colorful Samburu people in their traditional setting and experience their culture. This is a good opportunity to purchase traditional Samburu souvenirs, art and collectibles.
In the southern part of the park, you are guaranteed to see most of the Kenyan animals found in Samburu, namely: cheetahs, lions, leopards, impalas, buffalo, hippos, and dik-diks, as well as the native gerenuk, Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe and Beisa Oryx. You are guaranteed to see most animals during the dry season as they converge at the Usaso Nyiro River, their main source of water during the long dry weather. Elephants are also spotted during this time, and you can watch the Nile crocodiles swim in the river.
Bird Viewing: Samburu National Reserve boasts of over 350 species of birds already recorded. Bee on the look out for vultures, kingfishers, marabous, bateleurs, guinea fowl, Somali ostriches and many more.
Kenya is known as the safari capital of the world because of its amazing wildlife, beaches, birds and weather. Visitors to Kenya are spoilt for choice - you can choose to visit any or all of the twenty three national parks or the thirteen national reserves.
Millions of travelers go to Kenya to witness the Great Migration or chase the Big Five. The ‘Big 5’ – the elephant, rhinoceros, lion, leopard, and cape buffalo – can all be found in Kenya’s parks, with other popular animals such as the giraffe, cheetah, and zebras. Kenya is a great country for a day safari or a multi-park tour. Headlined by the world renowned Masai Mara National Park, some of its parks located mere hours from the city center.
In addition to the opportunity to see some of Africa most iconic animals in their natural habitat, Kenya also offers visitors the chance to go on cultural safaris. The Maasi culture tours are rated as the best culture tours by thousands of travelers.
Kenya's diverse landscapes ranging from snow-capped mountains to stunning volcanic springs, and from sun-parched deserts to verdant Savannah and forests, a safari tour of Kenya is as much a chance to soak in unique landscapes as it is an opportunity to see wildlife whose concentration can't be found anywhere in the world.
