Samburu camping safari
Duration: 2 Nights / 3 days
A safari to Samburu Game Reserve, situated in the hot and arid fringes of Kenya’s vast Northern Frontier District. Against a backdrop of volcanic mountains, gaunt hills and withered scrub trees punctuate the sparse and moistless terrain with clusters of the incredibly hardy desert rose providing occasional flashes of vivid colour.

Leaving Nairobi in the morning you drive north, along the foothills of Mount Kenya and across the equator.

Samburu is home to various species of game generally only found in these northern areas – Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx, long necked gerenuk and blue shanked Somali ostrich. Lion, cheetah and leopard roam the savannah in search of their next meal. Dinner and overnight at a campsite.
Day 2: Samburu (B. L. D)
