Just above the equator in northern Kenya, Samburu National Park promises one of the hottest safaris yet with plenty of wildlife watching to be had on the banks of the seasonal Ewaso Ngiro River. Amidst thick acacia and doum palm forests, the national reserve is rich in wildlife with big cats like lion, leopard and cheetah as well as elephant, wild dog and 450 species of recorded birds to be found. But what sets Samburu National Park apart from the rest is the rare northern species you’ll find here: Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, Reticulated Somali giraffe, beisa oryx and gerenuk – also known as the “Samburu Special Five”. Plan your trip during the dry months from December to March and July to October for the best game viewing opportunities and combining your safari with a visit to Amboseli, Maasai Mara or Nakuru is highly recommended.
