Journey Details

DAY 1-3 Samburu National Reserve

Set on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro River and neighbouring the Buffalo Springs National Park, Samburu National Reserve is characterised by a spectacular landscape of rugged hills, undulating plains and riverine forests. The park is home to abundant wildlife including a variety of rare species such as the reticulated giraffe, the long-necked gerenuk, Somali ostrich, Grevy’s Zebra, and Beisa Oryx. Visitors can also enjoy spotting over 900 elephants, a variety of predators, and over 450 bird species. The ancient culture of the Samburu people is still alive here, and it is possible to see two unique customs firsthand. In the first, watch as herds of cattle respond to each man’s individual voice as they call. In the second, see the tribesmen perform incredible dances that go back hundreds of years.

Where you will stay: Sasaab

Overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro river in the heart of Samburu land, Sasaab is a spectacular lodge which blends wildlife, adventure, relaxation and culture for the ultimate safari experience in northern Kenya. The lodge commands breathtaking views across the arid landscape towards the jagged peaks of Mount Kenya. Sasaab’s design is Moroccan in style – each room boasts enormous open air bathrooms, expansive views and private plunge pools.

An exceptional safari experience is offered with sightings of the ‘Samburu Special Five’ (Grevy’s zebra, Reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, gerenuk and beisa oryx), as well as authentic experiences with the fiercely proud and colourful Samburu people.

Went on my first safari almost two weeks ago and Designer Safari made my experience perfect. So helpful and they answered all my questions fast. I couldn’t have asked for better service. As a solo traveller I felt safe and everything was well planned. So if you are planning to go on safari I can highly recommend Designer Safari. If you are staying in Nairobi I can also recommend the beautiful and peaceful Deerpark on Kunde Road 6.
