During our stay in the Samburu Game Reserve we made three gamedrives early in the morning and late in the afternoon. In this arid area in the north of Kenya, water means life. So the waters of the Ewaso Nyiro river draw wildlife in great numbers to its banks.

Samburu National Reserve is visited by large herds of elephants. The Samburu region is the best place to find endemic species of the north, including the gerenuk, the giraffe, and zebra. The forests along the river banks are home to many birds, including local species of the vulture and the dove. These forests are also home to many leopards. Also lions are frequently seen on the riverbanks. The cheetah can be found on the open plains.

Directions: Just north of Isiolo, about 250 KM north of Nairobi.
