Located in the northern plains of Kenya, the Samburu national reserve is home to dry-country fauna like the Oryx, Reticulated giraffe and the Grevy`s zebra.

Members of the big five animals are also present here as well as the lesser ones and hundreds of bird species too.

Due to its dry condition, the watering points offer guaranteed perfect spots for game watching during the hottest part of the day.

Arriving in the late afternoon, you will have a game drive later in the day towards the evening and afterwards, head to your lodge/camp.

The tradition way of shelter making and clothing of the Gabbra and the Rendile people found here, will offer a nice blending to serve you the exclusive beauty in what is an almost non trodden route.

With less civilization and human invasion due to its harsh conditions, the region between Kalacha and Loiyangalani will bring history alive, an exposure that will last with you for ages.
