Day 2: Full day in Samburu National Reserve
Enjoy your scheduled morning and afternoon game viewing drives within the reserve.
The greater Samburu region (Samburu/Buffalo Springs/Shaba game reserves) are the best places to find several endemic Northern species; including the Gerenuk (twiga gazelle) due to her long neck, the beisa Oryx, the Reticulated Giraffe, the Somali ostrich and Grevy’s Zebra. Leopards are often seen at dusk. Samburu is also an ornithological paradise, home to many birds including local species such as the Palm Nut Vulture and the Vivacious Dove.
The Samburu culture is a truly fascinating one, sharing a great deal of ancestral and linguistic ties to the Maasai culture. The entire Samburu region is a place of breathtaking and magical beauty, a place where the vision of a deep red sunset silhouetting the doum palms along the river as a leopard emerges to hunt brings the perfect end to a day on safari.
Enjoy meals and overnight at your luxury camp/lodge.
