Overview

The samburu game reserve is situated in the Northern Province of Kenya. It is rugged and a semi- desert. To get here you will cross the equator at Nanyuki and go to the northern hemisphere by passing the snow capped Mt Kenya lying astrand the equator line and huge blue mountains serve as a back drop to this game reserve. The environment is enchanting. The river Uaso Nyiro is the lifeline and the nerve center of this Reserve and is bustling with a huge population of crocodiles. The game reserve is renowned for its rare species of animals that can only be found in this park, like -the long necked gerenuk, gravy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, and the Beisa onyx. The leopard is a frequent visitor in this park and most evenings it pays a courtesy call to the lodge’s guests as it feeds on some bite on a tree across the river.
