Samburu ‘Special Five’ Budget Camping Adventure
Named after the local Samburu tribe, Samburu Game Reserve lies to the north of Mount Kenya at the boundaries of the Laikipia Plateau. This scenically stunning area boasts healthy numbers of Africa’s big game (especially lion, elephant and leopard).
And a wide diversity of rarer species (‘ Special Five’) – Somali ostrich, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk & Beisa oryx.
The great Ewaso Nyiro river snaking through the reserve, houses crocs and hippos, and the open plains can be good for cheetah. A highlight here is the famous Samburu Singing Wells where members of the Samburu tribe take their cattle and sing as they extract water from the wells.
