About Samburu

This is the home of the 3 famous national reserves of Samburu, Shaba & Buffalo Springs. These sanctuaries play host to wild animals that are adapted to the northern dry climatic zones, including the "special five" group of cheetah, reticulated giraffe, beisa oryx, gerenuk "giraffe antelope" and the blue Somali ostrich. Others include elephant, the occasional leopard, lion and a prolific birdlife. All this is supported by the River Ewaso Nyiro that runs across the 3 reserves
