Samburu National Park
EMI Travel > Tours > Kenya > Samburu National Park

Palm groves and riverine forests, in the midst of arid and semi-arid ecosystems, create the magnificent landscape of the Samburu National Reserve.

This vast expanse of remote pristine wilderness is inhabited by iconic wildlife and a tranquil ambience blankets this wildlife haven. Located in the North of Laikipia, one of the less-visited regions in Kenya, this reserve promises an authentic wilderness experience. The Park also boasts 400 species of birds.

The traditional homeland of the Samburu people, this arid terrain features northern Kenya’s biggest river, Ewaso Nyiro which is surrounded by a permanent ribbon of green, with tamarinds, doum palms and acacia providing respite from the sweltering sun.

The river quenches the thirst of the abundant wildlife that roam this reserve, and it is its reliability that lured the herdsmen that are Samburu people to this area. The river courses through Samburu National Park, Shaba National Reserve and the Buffalo Springs National Reserve to the south.

Home to the rare northern 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 the thick acacia forest.

Dedicated efforts to conservation have been a long-standing commitment in this semi-arid part of the country. There has been invaluable collaboration with communities to prohibit human-wildlife conflict.  There are fascinating opportunities to interact, engage and learn from researchers, trackers and organisations that protect endangered species.

You’ll also get to meet the Samburu people, a nomadic, herding people similar to and related to the Maasai. They also dress in the same manner with blankets and beads. Visit a local Samburu village, meet the people, learn about their lifestyle and perhaps purchase some souvenirs of your experience.
