A place of endless skies, dust-red plains and palm-fringed rivers! Samburu National Park lies on the fringes of the vast, arid desert, once known as the Northern Frontier District. It’s a great place to witness large herds of elephant, who roam the hills during the day before returning to bathe on the riverbanks in the evening. Samburu National Park also provides one of the few sanctuaries in Kenya for the endangered grevy’s zebra and the rare beisa oryx. Enjoy wonderful game drives and, outside the national park, walking safaris and visits to remote villages of the Samburu people.
