“Samburu National Reserve is situated about 350 km north of Nairobi in the semi-arid part of Kenya. Ewaso Nyiro River, the only water source in the dry season, bisects the reserve and apart from providing water to life, the river is home to some of the biggest Reptiles in the region and attracts a good number of birds. An unusual forked palm, the doum palm, grows along the banks of this river and adds striking beauty to the panorama. Wildlife is surprisingly abundant for such a dry place and includes species such as Gerenuk, Dik-dik, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, Elephant, Cheetah, Leopard, and Lion. There are several species, which are unique to this area including; Gravy’s zebra, Beisa Oryx, Somali Ostrich, and reticulated Giraffe”
