Samburu Game Reserve Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 138 photos

In March 2004 we visited the Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Game Reserves along the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. We camped two nights at the northbank of this river.


We saw a lot of game. Especially the herds of elephants were very inpressive

The Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Game Reserves are in the area where the Samburu people live. So, you will see these colourfully dressed and decorated people around.

    Ik vond Samburu GR fantastisch! De olifanten hebben mijn hard gestolen... Leuke pagina, leuke foto's. Ik heb ook 2 uur met zo'n ranger in de truck gezeten van Samburu naar Maralal...kauwend op zijn blaadjes mét geweer (kan niet goed samengaan...) doei

    Wow Ali, you still manage to have some great adventures that I envy! Too bad to hear about the Rhinos, and I see the Elephants are still making war on the trees!! Really enjoyable page!
