Set in a rugged landscape, against the backdrop of jagged mountains, Samburu dares you to be bold and take the road less travelled to explore the natural and dramatic beauty of Northern Kenya’s arid savannahs.

Known as the Samburu 5, here you will find the Beisa Oryx, Grevy’s Zebra, Reticulated Giraffe, Gerenuk Antelope and Blue Necked Somali Ostrich - animals rarely witnessed in other parts of the country - making Samburu’s game viewing famously first class.
