Samburu National Park
Samburu National Park is also found in the rift valley to the north of Mount Kenya. The area is gently low lying due to lava flow that resulted from volcanic activities. The climate here is hot and semi-arid.
Acacia trees are dominant in the region while animals such as zebra, buffalo, lions, leopards, hyena, giraffe and others are in large numbers. Besides, ostriches are also spread out in the harbor.
It is one of the sanctuaries with a characteristic large number of birds. Crocodiles and hippos are sheltered in a river crossing the park.
Due to aridity conditions in the region, animals find water from oases within the park. Several lodges and camps in the reserve make it distinctive.
Buffalo Springs National Reserve
The reserve is located in the arid and Semi-Arid Isiolo region. It is adjacent to Ewaso Nyiro River and Samburu Park. The climate of the area is characterized by relatively high temperatures and low rainfall throughout the year.
Rare species of animals in the reserve distinguish it from the rest in the republic. Beisa Oryx, Somali ostrich, grevy’s zebra, gerenuk and reticulated giraffe are the main extinct species found in the reserve unlike in other others.
Explorers access the harbor from Nanyuki or using the airstrip available in the buffalo springs. Travellers are entertained by pastoralists, cultural dancers, lifestyles of nomads, viewing wildlife among other activities.
Shaba National Reserve
Shaba National Park is also in Samburu with massive zebras to the east of the park. The presence of diverse animal species in the park renders it a beautiful harbor. Animals in all these parks are strictly protected to safeguard humans against harm.
