The Samburu Game Reserve is situated on the banks of the Ewaso Ngiro River in the dry northern reaches of Kenya. It is a hot and arid area characterized by a parched landscape of hills and plains. The presence, however, of the river and its shady trees attracts a large number of wildlife. This safari provides you with an opportunity to see wildlife that only lives in the dry northern regions of Kenya. Come explore Africa with us!
