Remote & rewarding safaris
Shaba and Samburu are two of the most remote and least visited of Kenya’s game parks, situated 325 kilometres north of Nairobi in the tribal lands of the Samburu people. The bush here is composed of wild acacia scrub and open savannah, cut through by the crocodile and hippo filled Ewaso Nyiro River. As well as elephant, buffalo, cheetah, leopard and lion, Samburu national Park contains several species that are rarely seen elsewhere: Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, Beisa oryx and the long-necked gerenuk.
The colourful Samburu tribe in this region live the same nomadic, pastoralist lifestyle as they have done for hundreds of years. Close relatives of the Masai in the south, the Samburu people wear similar bright clothing and handcrafted jewellery.
Safari in Samburu & Shaba will offer beautiful wilderness, thrilling wildlife and friendly locals!
