Samburu National Reserve Kenya is situated in the hot and arid fringes of Kenya's vast Northern Frontier District. The Samburu National Reserve is home to the Samburu tribe, pastoral cousins of the Masai.

The landscape is rugged and dramatic - against a backdrop of volcanic mountains, gaunt hills and withered scrub tree punctuate the sparse and dry terrain with clusters of the incredibly hardy desert rose providing the occasional flash of vivid co lour.

The Samburu region is the best place to find several endemic Northern species, including Gerenuk, the Reticulated Giraffe, and Grevy’s Zebra. The forests along the river banks are home to many birds, including local species such as the Palm Nut Vulture and the Vinaceous Dove.

These forests are also home to many Leopards, often seen at dusk. The sight of one of these beautiful and elusive creatures is always a rare treat. Lions are also frequently seen on the riverbanks, and Cheetah can be found on the open plains.

On rare occasion, packs of African Hunting Dogs are sighted passing through the Samburu National Reserve. When you see a camel train walking single file along a dry riverbed, you realise you are in a pretty parched area. The three National Reserves of Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba are at the beginning of the dry north where camels become commonplace. However, it is not a completely parched area as it is watered by the Uaso Nyiro River or 'River of Brown Water' in Samburu.

This is an essential and sometimes erratic water source for all the inhabitants, including a considerable amount of wildlife in the reserves and Samburu cattle and goats. Out of the north Kenyan tribes of Samburu, Rendille, Turkana and Borana, the Samburu dominate this area. To the uninformed eye they could be confused with the Maasai - for they are closely related and wear similar bright clothing and jewellery and have the same cultural beliefs.

They continue their nomadic pastoralist lifestyle as they have done for hundreds of years. The scrub desert, desiccated savannah and small hills of this region create overriding colours of muted greens, dusty creams, sand yellow, earthen ochre and every shade of brown. Perfect camouflage colours for the many animals that inhabit these parks.

Samburu, Shaba and Buffalo Springs are as far north in the country that you will get on most safaris. A new road through northern Kenya is being constructed, and will eventually allow much better access to Losai National Reserve and Marsabit National Park even further north.

It's not obvious, though, that these two parks will start seeing many visitors just because of the road. Only going from Nairobi to the Samburu area is a bit too far for a good safari by road itinerary.

The three national reserves themselves are smallish compared to for example Masai Mara and most of the parks in Tanzania. The wildlife is good enough to justify a visit and a two-night stay, if you want an itinerary that includes a variety of parks.

Visiting comes at the cost of spending much time on the roads getting there, and then getting back. If you want as much time for game viewing as possible in your itinerary, or want to reduce the amount of time you spend on the roads travelling between parks, you may choose not to visit Samburu/Shaba/Buffalo Springs, but to focus your safari on fewer or larger parks that offer more game driving options and a richer wildlife. You may for example go to Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara in Kenya.

During the end of the 1990's, the Samburu, Shaba and Buffalo Springs area was haunted by bandits that stopped and robbed tourist vehicles traveling to or from the parks. The authorities took actions to stop the bandits, and have been successful. The first thing you'll notice on your KenyaSamburu Safari is that it is worlds apart from the other National parks in Kenya. It is a hot and arid area characterised by a parched landscape of hills and plains. What is good about Samburu safaris is that the refreshing waters of the Ewaso Ngiro River run through Samburu and attract plenty of wildlife - including elephant, lion, giraffe and zebra. Leopards are also regularly spotted.

Samburu is home to large herds of elephants and elusive leopards. It is also well known for providing the opportunity to see wildlife that only lives in the dry north of Kenya. Your safari in Samburu wouldn't be complete without seeing a gerenuk - an odd yet distinguished gazelle with a long neck, which stands on its hind legs to feed.

The Samburu Game Reserve Safaris should be in your itinerary when you plan an in Kenya Safari or any African Safari Holiday, because it is one of the less well known of the Kenya Game Reserves, and so less crowded, and in addition it has several species which are considered to be unique to the region. Going on a safari in Kenya should not necessarily be all about the 'big five', but also the chance of spotting animals such as Grevy's Zebra, Beisa Oryx, Reticulated Giraffe, Somali Ostrich, as well as Elephant, Lion and Cheetah. Sadly there are no rhino in the park because of poaching, but there are over 350 species of bird which includes Kingfisher, Sunbird, Bee-eater, Marabou Stork, Bateleur, and Palm-nut Vulture. Last but not least the Usaso Nyiro River contains large numbers of Nile crocodiles, the second largest species of crocodile, who can grow up to 20ft. in length, weighing over1500lbs and are known to snatch and devour a human.
