Day 2 & 3, Samburu National Game Reserve
This morning drive north of the Equator to Ashnil Samburu Camp, on the edge of Kenya’s semi-desert lands where you may encounter some of the animals and vegetation that are typical of this region such as the Grevy’s Zebra, the Reticulated Giraffe and the Somali Ostrich. The best feature of Samburu is not the wildlife of the picturesque surroundings, but the fact that it is one of the lesser visited regions in Kenya. The peaceful atmosphere and the authentic wilderness experience set it apart from the better known wildlife reserves in Kenya, there is plentiful wildlife and the bird watching is especially good. The reserve is fairly hot and semi-arid, making for easy game viewing. Enjoy 2 days full of game viewing in this harshly beautiful terrain where wildlife abounds along the Uaso Nyiro River, the park’s only source of drinking water.
