Samburu National Reserve:
Samburu Game Reserve is situated in the hot and arid fringes of Kenya's vast Northern Frontier District. The area is home to the Samburu tribe, pastoral relatives of the Masai. The landscape is rugged and dramatic - against a backdrop of volcanic mountains, gaunt hills and withered scrub tree punctuate the sparse and dry terrain with clusters of the incredibly hardy desert rose providing the ocassional flash of vivid colour. The Ewaso Nyiro river, lifeline of the area, runs along the southern boundary dividing Samburu Game Reserve from Buffalo Springs Reserve. Crocodile and hippo share the river with the many small herds of elephant which bathe and frolic in the muddy brown waters during the heat of the day before returning later to browse on the lush vegetation of the riverine forest. Buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and plains game may also be seen but a special feature of this Reserve are the various species of game unique to these northern parks - Beisa oryx, the long necked gerenuk, Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe and the blue shanked Somali ostrich. Samburu Reserve covers an area of 104 km2 on the northern bank of Uaso Nyiro river. Samburu Game Reserve has a unique landscapes of rounded and rugged hills and undulating plains.

Samburu Serena Safari Lodge:
Situated on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River, in the center of the Samburu Game Reserve, the Samburu Serena Safari Lodge echoes the robust rhythms of African riverfront life. The lodge was inspired by the architecture of the indigenous Samburu tribe; it blends into its natural environment by making full use of native materials. Thatched cabins built using exotic African woods create an escapist atmosphere. Accommodations are cooled by breezes off the river and overhead punkah fans. All guestrooms have private verandahs with uninterrupted vistas of the languid river and the wildlife it attracts, as well as the countless crocodiles that make the waters their home. Gracious dining and lounge areas are enhanced by Samburu details and murals depicting local nature. The Samburu dancers will entertain you during one of your days here, and it might even be possible to visit one of their villages if you're interested, for a nominal small fee.
