Samburu National Reserve

The name Samburu is of Maasai origin, a ‘samburr’ is a traditional leather bag the Masai use for carrying honey and milk. This region is characterized by vast, open landscapes, dried riverbeds (depending on the season of the year) and its red volcanic soil.

Rock outcroppings contrast against the dense woodland vegetation along the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, the river that gives life to the reserve. The area is home to the Samburu tribe, who are ‘cousins’ to the Maasai people with their own distinct cultural traditions.

Samburu is renowned for its rare species of fauna known as the ‘Samburu five. These five particular animals are usually only found north of the equator – the long-necked gerenuk, the reticulated giraffe which is characterized by its liver-colored geometric patches defined by narrow white lines, the Grevy’s zebra which is smaller than the common zebra and looks more like a horse, the beisa oryx with black horizontal stripe running across its lower flank and the Somali ostrich males which have blue-grey necks and thighs.

Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Ol Pejeta Conservancy is a 364-square-kilometer wildlife conservancy situated between the foothills of Mount Kenya and the Aberdares and its game-to-area ratio tops the Kenyan park and reserve league.

Ol Pejeta has over 10,000 large mammals and it is the only park where the Big Five and chimpanzees can be seen. It is also where the fastest-growing population of rhino in Africa can be found. There are southern white rhinos, about 80 endangered black rhino and in a special sanctuary, there are three of the world’s last remaining northern white rhino.
