Samburu National Reserve Holidays

Born Free Territory

We love the Samburu National Reserve for its raw energy and unwavering Kenyan spirit. Less well known than the Mara though equally as great, if not better! Spot species you will not see anywhere else in Kenya, sip a gin and tonic as the sun sets on the banks of the Ewaso Ng'iro River and immerse yourself in the Samburu tribes village life.

With just a sprinkling of lodges which allows you to fully immerse yourself in to the surroundings. The Samburu is home to the big cats, though it is especially good for leopard. Also located here are the 'Samburu Big 5' of Grey zebra, reticulated giraffe, besia oryx, long-neck gerenuk and Somali Ostrich. Whilst being home to lion, elephant, giraffe and cheetah plus bird lovers will be in their element as there are 450 bird species to observe.

The Samburu is a wonderful experience and appeals to first timers as well as the seasoned safari enthusiast.
