A safari in Samburu National Reserve is a perfect decision when you're looking for a less-touristic safari experience in Kenya, because of its remoter location. On a Samburu safari, you're likely to spot 4 out of the Big Five (rhino excluded) as wildlife is relatively easy to find here, as well as many birds and mammals restricted to the arid north. Although the Dry Season gets really hot (and dry!), this is the best time to spot most wildlife. The best time to visit Samburu is from June to September and from January to February.
The birthplace of safari travel, Kenya offers incredible natural beauty, great game viewing, the heart-pumping wildebeest migration, and interesting cultural encounters.
When you search for safaris in Africa, you are bound to come across the expensive options. After all, the most widespread misconception about safaris is that they are pricey and above most travelers’ budgets.
You’ve just arrived at the gate of the game reserve. The drive to the lodge already shows the magic of South Africa. A warthog here, an elephant there, and your child’s eyes light up with excitement and curiosity.
As the jeep makes its way on the dusty roads, suddenly it comes to a stop. The ranger motions you to stay quiet. The next second, he points to a bush where a family of lions is busy watching the zebras grazing nearby. All the while, there are also wildebeest and antelopes lurking by.
