Samburu National Reserve, in the hot and arid fringes of the north region of Kenya, lies within the land of the colourful Samburu people and plays host to large populations of wildlife. Renowned for its large elephant population, the Reserve is situated along the doum-palm fringed Ewaso Nyiro River. Rich in rare endemic northern species of wildlife including Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and beisa oryx, its residents also include large predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah. The birds of the arid northern bush country are augmented by a number of riverine forest species.
