Samburu Intrepid Game Viewing and Activities

Activities at Samburu Intrepid include game drives in the Samburu National Reserve and the adjoining Buffalo Springs game reserve; early morning and late afternoon game drives as well as nature walks accompanied expert guides. Samburu National Reserve has more than 350 species of birds. Cultural visits as well as star-gazing are among the highlights here at Samburu. Camel Rides offer an exciting alternative. Samburu Game Reserve is a lava plain that features steep sided gullies and rounded hills wherein the 32km Usao Nyiro River provides both the central feature of the landscape and the lifeblood of the ecosystem. This is a dry country ecosystem and is therefore prone to large variations in the animal populations as they search for water. Poaching has completely wiped out the rhino herds in this area. The camp's location deep inside the reserve guarantees close encounters with the region's shier wildlife including elephant, lion, leopard and Samburu's unique five - the rare reticulated giraffe, long-necked gerenuk, antelope, Somali ostrich, Grevy's zebra and Beisa Oryx. Marshal eagles, pygmy falcons, hornbills and Egyptian geese can also be spotted.
