Samburu National Reserve Safari

2 NIGHTS / 3 DAYS

Samburu Reserve is especially famous for the almost guaranteed sighting of the 3 cats: lion,cheetah, and leopard. It bores a natural serenity due to its distance from industry and the inaccessibility of the reserve for many years. This safari will traverse north through the high shoulder of Mountain Kenya to the Game Reserve of Samburu. See the Ewaso Nyiro River which supports a wide variety of game such as elephant, reticulated giraffe, buffalo, grevy’s zebra, oryx and the long necked gerenuk.

You will be transferred by road to Samburu Intrepids Tented Camp, located in the heart of the semi desert Samburu National Reserve, along the Rift Valley province. Here elephants, lions, buffalo, giraffe and zebra move along the the river that cuts through this reserve, crocodiles often found
lounging on the riverbanks. Drawing its name from the Samburu people of Kenya who call the area home, and made famous by the Adamsons’ who inspired the book and movie Born Free, this comfortable tented camp is a wonderful introduction to safari style in Kenya. Game driving happens twice a day along the savannah amidst acacia trees, forest and thorn trees to spot the many different animals that can be found in the reserve. They have camel rides lead by the local villagers, where you can get a different vantage point of the area and the wildlife as well as support the community. The Samburu are well know star gazers so taking part in a star gazing experience to learn from them is well worth it.

In the heart of Kenya’s Laikipia region, Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a shining example of conservation for the entire continent. Home to the last 3 Northern white rhino in the world, it’s also a sanctuary for Southern whites and critically endangered black rhino, as well as chimpanzee. In the
heart of it all is Alex Hunter’s charming bush camp of the same name, where traditional game drives and walks in Big 5 territory are offered alongside visits to the projects – truly a place to discover the best of both worlds. There is a definite focus on conservation at Ol Pejeta and visits to
the Endangered Species Enclosure to see the Northern white rhino and to the chimpanzee sanctuary take place daily. There are also opportunities to spend a morning with the lion research team and track the cats in the area, as well as with the rhino patrol guards. Intersperse these with traditional
Big 5 game drives and walking safaris and this is a safari that’s very hard to beat!
