Tour Details

Samburu National Park

Wrapped around mountain slopes and alpine plateaus lies Samburu county; the home of the Samburu tribe and the Samburu National Reserve. This is one of the few places in Kenya that has been spared by modernity as the culture of the Samburu community is well intact.

At Kibaria Travel we love calling it the miracle park based on ‘Kamunyak’ The miracle lioness that adopted several baby oryx. Kamunyak means miracle in Samburu

The Samburu National Reserve lies on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro river in Kenya. On the other side of the river is the Buffalo Springs National Reserves. The park is 165 km² in size and is situated 350 kilometres from Nairobi. It ranges in altitude from 800 to 1230m above sea level. Geographically, it is located Samburu

There is plenty to attract wildlife from the surrounding savannah plains being a home to elephants and large predators such as the lion, leopard and cheetah. However, what make Samburu National park unique and special are the following

  • Grevy’s zebra
  • Somali ostrich
  • Reticulated giraffe
  • Gerenuk
  • The Beisa Oryx

 

 

Wild dog sightings are also a common attraction to this unique protected area. Birdlife is abundant with over 450 species recorded.
