What to Expect

This reserve together with its adjoining counterparts (Shaba and Buffalo Spring Game Reserves), is within the lands of the Samburu tribe, a Maa-speaking pastoralist and nomadic people closely related to the Maasai. This arid reserve with an eco-system traversed with the grand Uaso Ngiro River and lying on the northern half of Kenya is rich with wildlife and birds, with rare species endemic to the arid north such as the Grevys zebra, reticulated giraffe, long-necked gerenuk (giraffe antelope), the scimitar-shape horned Beisa oryx and the blue-shanked Somali ostrich. Others include lion, cheetah, the occasional leopard, elephant, buffalo and hippo among others.

Day 1

You will be picked from your residence at 07:00 am and set off for safari. You drive past the pineapple town of Thika, turn left at Makuyu through to the equator city of Nanyuki where on a good sky-clear morning you might be able to see the snow-capped Mount Kenya (standing at 5,199M high on the majestic Batian, Nelion and Lenana Peaks). You will then proceed to town of Isiolo and to the reserve using Engare Mare Gate (just before Archers Post). Arrival at your lodge is in time for lunch followed by a short rest.

Later afternoon, a game viewing drive in the reserve follows to run until sunset and then return to lodge. Dinner and overnight at a Shaba Game Lodge (L,D)

Day 2

Day spent fully in the pack inclusive of game drives in the morning & afternoon up to River Ewaso Nyiro (the reserves lifeline). Attractions here are incredibly different from the common wildlife that we find on the southern parts of the country; these are adapted to the arid conditions here, making the reserve a special showcase, all these amidst the dotted acacia with Koitogor & Ololokwe Mountains visible. In the evening you return to your lodge for overnight.
