Samburu District

In the arid North of Kenya, water means life. The waters of the great Ewaso Nyiro river draw wildlife in great numbers to its banks, creating an oasis of green, set against a backdrop of the mighty Mountain Ol Olokwe.

The verdant riverine forest is a stark contrast to the arid thorn studded plains. Samburu is visited by large herds of Elephants, drawn by the promise of water – and in the dry season, the elephants use their tusks to dig deep into the dry river beds, unearthing precious water. These waterholes then become a focal point for other game.

The Samburu region is the best place to find several endemic Northern species, including Gerenuk, the Reticulated Giraffe and Grevy’s Zebra. The forests along the river banks are home to many birds, as well as the elusive leopard, often seen at dusk. Lions are also frequently spotted on the riverbanks, and cheetah can be found on the open plains.

The entire Samburu region is a place of breath-taking and magical beauty, a place where deep red sunsets silhouette the doum palms along the river as a leopard emerges to hunt…the perfect end to a day on safari.
