Location

Samburu National Reserve

Samburu National Reserve is a rugged and semi-desert park located in Samburu District in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. The park neighbors the homes of the Samburu tribe of Kenya, a tribe known for their remote culture and pastoral and nomadic way of life. Due to its remote distance and the fact that it was inaccessible for many years, the park has retained a naturally serene and quiet feeling. Besides the numerous wildlife found in this game reserve, the park is also a bird haven.

Lake Nakuru National Park

On the floor of the Great Rift Valley, surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland, lies the beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park. Visitors can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats that range from Lake Nakuru itself to the surrounding escarpment and picturesque ridges. Lake Nakuru National Park is ideal for bird watching, hiking, picnic, and game drives.

Maasai Mara National Reserve

Maasai Mara National Reserve is considered a “must see” for any visitor traveling on safari in Kenya. It is on the “to-do list" of most Kenyan visitors because the park is graced by a wide variety of unique and exquisite wildlife and birds.
