Samburu National Reserve
Samburu is unquestionably Kenya's little paradise, rich in culture and rare species. Being on the leeward side of Mount Kenya, it is an arid area, but its scenic landscape, rocky terrain, and the mighty Ewaso Ng'iro River bring this park to life. It is home to the Grevy Zebra, Somali Ostrich, Reticulated Giraffe, Gerenuk, and Beisa Oryx, which are known as the "special five." Sightings of wild dogs are also a popular draw to this one-of-a-kind protected area. With over 450 recorded bird species, there is plenty of bird life.
