Samburu National Park in Kenya

Samburu National Reserve is located in the North of Kenya on the opposite bank of the Ewaso Nyiro River to Buffalo Springs and adjacent to Shaba Reserve. The river acts as a magnet for wildlife from the very arid, surrounding, savannah plains.

During the dry season months between June and October the water and lush vegetation attracts a very high concentration of wildlife. There are a number of rare northern species found here including Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, Somali ostrich, Beisa oryx and reticulated giraffe. The Samburu National Reserve has plentiful elephants and all the big cats are regularly sighted. Samburu also has some highly endangered wild dogs and is a mecca for bird watchers.

The reserve is located in the tribal lands of the Samburu people, a colourful culture with close links to the Maasai in the south. They are semi-nomadic pastoralists, herding cattle also, because of the terrain in which they ...

DRY SEASON

January through to March can be the hottest and driest one of the best times to witness some great game viewing. Wildlife is abundant in Kenya all year round and the open terrain of many parks makes for easier game viewing.

The weather in July and August is dry and sunny with cool evenings. September and October bring hot days to Samburu.

This area is good to visit at any time but prices are much higher in the peak dry season months from July to September

green SEASON

From Mid March to early June Kenya experiences its long rains driven by the winds of the South East monsoon. The whole country is greener and it is a great time for birders with many species in full breeding plumage. This is the time of year when many species have their young and there are some great deals around.

SHOULDER SEASON

January to Mid March are Mid-summer, the short rains should now have ceased with warm days, clear skies. This is usually the hottest and driest time of year and one of the best times to witness some great game viewing, these months fall into the shoulder season pricing bracket so represent good value for money.

November sees the start of the short rains which may continue into December, characterized by short sharp showers usually in the mornings or evening followed by clear sunny skies.
