Samburu National Reserve with homeland Adventures Kenya

There’s something about Samburu National Reserve that our guests find calming, even in the midst of all the wildlife. Perhaps it’s the fact that Samburu is somewhat off the beaten path, so you’ll enjoy a wild game park with fewer tourists. And you’ll be treated to the sight of such unique creatures as Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk and the Somali Ostrich.

Want to get away from the crowds and see a different slice of Africa? Come North with us to Samburu, Shaba, and Buffalo Springs Reserves. Along the way, we’ll pass the country’s tallest peak, snow-capped Mt. Kenya. In Samburu, you’ll find abundant wildlife as the reserve features plenty of big cats and over 900 elephants. Neighboring Shaba and Buffalo Springs offer a dramatic choice of scenic terrain – from riverine forests to old lava flow to marshes and springs. There’s so much variety of wildlife and landscape awaiting you
