Samburu National Reserve is situated at the southeastern corner of Samburu District in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. It is bordered to the south by the Ewaso Nyiro River separating it from Buffalo Springs National Reserve. Samburu offers an abundance of wildlife in a spectacularly beautiful setting - the river its main artery fringed with doum palms and a mountainous backdrop in the distance. Once the long rains have been and gone the landscape completely transforms into a carpet of verdant green and wild flowers. Aside from the expected wildlife, also present are the Samburu "Special Five": Grevy's zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and the beisa oryx. The elephant life here is astonishing and we believe the reserve offers some of the best elephant viewings in all of Africa. It is very rare to be able to enjoy such up-close-and-personal sightings of these great creatures in their natural environment. We also have plenty of big cats including lion, cheetah and leopard... as well as the smaller species, the occasional sighting of wild dog, nocturnal creatures and a seemingly never-ending array of birds.
