Vast, magnificent and largely unexplored, Samburu is one of three small reserves situated about 190 miles north of Nairobi and 50 miles north of Mount Kenya. Between them they offer contrasting habitats from rugged mountains, palm fringed rivers, stark cliffs, red-ochre termite mounds and freshwater springs. Hot and arid, the local nomadic tribe, the Gabba, call the area “the Plains of Darkness”, with the heat scorched scrubland extending all the way north to Lake Turkana. Shaba was once home of Joy Adamson of Born Free Foundation fame.
Famous, apart for its scenery, the three parks and known for their large prides of lion and herds of elephant and are best visited as part of an itinerary that includes the Masai Mare and on the soda lake parks, such as Lake Nakuru.
Game viewing is in 4×4 safari vehicles or on foot. The bird-watching is superb.
