The perfect safari holiday in the Samburu
Excellent wildlife viewing in Northern Kenya with most big safari animals are easily spotted.
The Samburu Game Reserve is in the Northern Province of Kenya. The 104 square kilometre unfenced Reserve is named after the pastoral and nomadic Samburu people with whom the park shares its boundaries. It is also one of two areas used to raise Elsa the lion for the film ‘Born Free’.
You will travel north from Nairobi and pass the sometimes snow-capped Mount Kenya before crossing the equator as you head into Samburu land. The best weather is experienced between December and March and July to October. During these dry periods animals converge on the Uaso Nyiro River as their main water source. This is ideal for those hoping for day light sightings of species like elephant and lion who concentrate in numbers at the water’s edge to gain some respite from the hot African sun.
In the southern part of the park, you are all likely to see iconic wildlife species such as cheetah, lions, leopards, impalas, buffalo, hippos, and dik-diks, as well as the native gerenuk, the rare Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe and Beisa Oryx.
During the wet months, April to June, wildlife is generally more dispersed due to increased availability of water and denser undergrowth.
