Samburu National Reserve

Ranging between altitudes of 800 to 1230m above mean sea level, the Samburu National Reserve forms a part of a far larger wildlife conservation area which incorporates the Buffalo Springs National Reserve to the south, and the Shaba National Reserve to the east between which the resident wildlife freely migrates.

And it was in this area that George and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the lion cub, and where they wrote the best selling book, Born Free, which later became an award winning movie. Joy later also wrote books about her pet cheetah and leopard, and today there is a museum dedicated to their memory at Lake Naivasha.

The Ewaso Ngi’ro River flows through this semi-desert, arid and environmentally harsh region while it divides the Samburu and Buffalo Springs reserves, and forms the northern Border of the Shaba Reserve. While it sustains Samburu’s large populations of wildlife in an area of 165 km², it also nurtures numerous forms of lush vegetation along the lines of its banks to include doum palm groves and dense riverine forests.

While there is a wide variety of animal and bird life to seen in the reserve, several species are considered unique to the region including the Grevy’s zebras, Reticulated giraffes and Vulturine guinea fowls. Lions, leopards and cheetahs can also be found here, as can elephants, buffalos, crocodiles and hippos. Other mammals frequently seen in the park include Olive baboons, gerenuks, warthogs, Grant's gazelles, Kirk's dik-diks, impalas, waterbucks, and Beisa oryxes.

There are also over 350 species of birds which include Somali ostriches, Grey-headed kingfishers, sunbirds, bee-eaters, Marabou storks, eagles, yellow-necked Spur fowls, lilac-breasted rollers, palm nut vultures, red-billed hornbills, secretary birds, Verreaux's eagles, superb starlings and yellow-billed hornbills.

Dining Experience

Dining

The dining room is on a slightly higher level than the lounge, and it shares the totally open air atmosphere to allow you views over both the waterhole and the panoramic landscapes beyond.

While artistically positioned wall niches house various forms of natural decorations, and the furniture follows traditional designs, the curvaceous buffet tables and live cooking areas offer a wide selection of delicious fusions of different culinary disciplines coupled with garden fresh fruits and vegetables.

Bars

Our tastefully decorated main bar is located against the rear wall of the lounge, and is adjacent to the walkway and sunbathing area around the swimming pool with its shaded sunken bar where you can sit and talk to our Samburu barman at will.
