Samburu National Park is a rugged semi-arid park in the Northern Province of Kenya.
Samburu National Park
Samburu National Park is situated in the Northern Province of Kenya. It is rugged and a semi-desert park. To get here you will cross the equator at Nanyuki and go to the northern hemisphere by passing the snow capped Mt Kenya lying astrand the equator line and huge blue mountains serve as a back drop to this game reserve.
The river Uaso Nyiro is the lifeline and the nerve center of this Reserve and is bustling with a huge population of crocodiles. The game reserve is renowned for its rare species of animals that can only be found in this park, like the long necked gerenuk, gravy?s zebra, reticulated giraffe, and the Beisa onyx. The leopard is a frequent visitor in this park and most evenings it pays a courtesy call to the lodges guests as it feeds on some bite on a tree across the river. The park has an abundant species of birds and can turn even the most reluctant guest in to an avid bird watcher. It is considered by Ornithologists a paradise for bird viewing. In the evenings, you can watch gigantic crocodiles fight over big chunks of meat as they are fed by the lodge staff at the riverbanks or as they get out of the river to relax. This is a great photo session opportunity as you sip cocktails and watch the African sunset in orange flame sky.
