Named after the red-robed pastoralist people who inhabit the surrounding plains, Samburu National Reserve is remote, hot and arid with rugged hills and undulating plains. Visitors are rewarded with the unique sighting of wildlife such as the long necked gerenuk, gravy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, and the Beisa oryx that can only be found here. However, the highlight for the visit to Samburu NP could be an encounter with the Samburu people who call this place home.

Getting there: Road transfer or air transfer.

What to do: Samburu community & cultural encounter, bird watching, game viewing.
