3 days samburu national park safari is one of our short safaris . The Samburu National Reserve is situated on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro river. On the other side of the river is the Buffalo Springs National Reserve. The park was one of the two areas in which conservationists George and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness. Their best-selling book and award-winning movie Born Free was shot in this park.
The reserve is rich in wildlife with an abundance of rare northern specialist species such as the Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and the beisa oryx (also referred to as Samburu Special Five). Birdlife is abundant with over 450 species recorded.
