Samburu National Reserve
Rugged and a semi-desert, the Samburu reserve lies on the edge of northern Kenya’s savannah. It’s one of three game reserves that are clustered around the Ewaso Ngiro River. Due to its mix of savannahs and forests, Samburu has first-class game viewing. While it’s not Kenya’s most well-known reserve, it’s home to all the big cats. And there’s even a ‘Samburu Big 5’ that include the: Grevy’s zebra; the long-necked gerenuk; besia oryx; reticulated giraffe; and Somali ostrich.
