Depart from Nairobi and drive to Samburu game reserve, A land characterised by rugged terrains dominated by dramatic hills with acacia and doum palm trees along the Evvaso nyiro river, the lifeline of the beautiful arid land. Thorn scrub rises against a backdrop of distant hills and the great red table Ololokwe mountain. It is within the colourful Samburu people, close relatives of the maasai, and it is a home to a number of wildlife species rarely found else where in Kenya Gravy's zebra, reticulated giraffe and be is a Oryx all found only north of the equator. Overnight at a lodge/ camp.
This morning we travel by road to Kenya’s northern frontier. Wild and rugged, Samburu is fiercely beautiful with its arid savannahs watered by the lovely UasoNyiro River. It is also one of Kenya’s most protected areas and home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to Grevy’s zebras and Beisa Oryxes. We also enjoy Larsens Tented Camp or Samburu Intrepids Camp, our luxurious hostelry set beneath a canopy of acacia trees along the banks of the river.
