Samburu / Buffalo and Shaba

Palm groves and riverine forests, in the midst of arid and semi arid ecosystems, create the magnificent landscape of the Samburu/ Buffalo and Shaba National Reserves. This vast expanse of remote pristine wilderness is inhabited by iconic wildlife and a tranquil ambiance blankets this wildlife haven. Located North of Laikipia, one of the less-visited regions in Kenya, this reserve promises an authentic wilderness experience.This arid terrain features northern Kenya’s biggest river, Ewaso Nyiro quenching the thirst of the abundant wildlife that roam this reserve. Home to the rare northern special five species (Grevy zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and the beisa oryx) this craggy, rugged region unfolds a romantic, awe-inspiring safari experience. Captivating Samburu elephant herds saunter over this game rich reserve and big cats prowl through thick acacia forest.
