Situated in Kenya’s south east and covering an area of 165 Km2, Samburu National Reserve is one of the lesser-known National Parks, but is nevertheless teeming with life. The reserve is rich in wildlife with an abundance of rare northern specialist species such as the Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and the beisa oryx (also referred to as Samburu Special Five). It is also home to elephants and large predators such as the lion, leopard and cheetah. Kamunyak the miracle lioness that adopted the baby oryx was as a resident in the reserve. Wild dog sightings are also a common attraction to this unique protected area. Birdlife is abundant with over 450 species recorded.
Additionally, you can have a cultural experience at this reserve by taking a visit to the traditional villages of the Samburu people that co-exist with wildlife harmoniously.
