Samburu Game Reserve is located in the Kenya’s northern frontier, 345 km from Nairobi. Wild and rugged, Samburu is fiercely beautiful with its arid savannahs watered by the lovely Uaso Nyiro river. It is home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to grevy’s zebra and beisa oryxes.
We recommend a 2 night safari to make the most of this adventure and to explore the depths of the scenic Samburu Game Reserve.
