Why Samburu National Reserve?

Situated on the edge of northern Kenya’s arid savannahs, Samburu National Reserve offers first-class, diverse wildlife viewing for the first-time safari-goer as well as the veteran.

Experience Mostly a fly-in destination, the uncrowded Samburu offers a range of luxury safari accommodations. Some are ideal for families & others are the perfect choice for honeymooners or couples. But all of them offer a wide selection of adventure activities.

Due to the reserve’s landscape that consists of open savannas & thick forests, guests can see a variety of wildlife, including all the big cats – lion, leopard & cheetah as well as the elusive wild dog & large herds of elephants.

The Samburu is also home to some unusual animals that are not found in other Kenya reserves. Top of the list is the ‘Samburu 5’ – Grevy’s zebra, the long-necked gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, besia oryx & Somali ostrich.

Birders should bring their bird books because the reserve hosts over 450 recorded species.

Activities The Samburu people also call this reserve home. Guests can enjoy fascinating cultural interactions with this interesting tribe & even visit them at their village.

Apart from cultural experiences, there are plenty of other safari activities to keep you busy for days. These include open 4x4 game drives, walking safaris, camelback safaris, big cat tracking & bush breakfasts.

Guests can also visit nearby rock art sites, enjoy stargazing or experience a helicopter flight over the reserve.

When To Travel Samburu is a year-round destination because it does not have extremely intense rainy seasons.

The cooler mid-year winter coincides with peak safari season from about June to October. The dry conditions make the animals easier to spot since they won’t move far from the Ewaso Ngiro River, one of the few sources of water.
