Samburu, Shabe & Buffalo springs National Game Reserves

A world apart from the lush green parks of the south, this fascinating semi-desert northern frontier district of Kenya has its own unique species not found in the less arid areas of the south. The tranquil Ewaso Nyiro River flowing through these parks provides an ideal habitat for crocodiles, large herds of elephants, elusive leopards and endemic species including Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx and Somali ostrich.

This northern rugged area is a set against a background of jagged purple mountains providing some of the best game viewing in the country.
