3 Days/ 2 Nights Samburu Game Reserve Flying Safari wings you to Samburu National Reserve. On arrival you will be met and transferred to your safari lodge or tented camp, where you will stay on full Board basis and enjoy morning and evening game drives in 4 wheel drive safari vehicles as you explore the surrounding area and track down wildlife.
Within the Samburu Reserve we use either the longes or camps both of which offer high standards of comfort in a traditional safari camp setting and are situated in shady areas beside the Ewaso Nyiro River. Tents are sited on a wooden platform under thatched roof.
All have en-suite bathrooms with normal flush lavatories and hot showers. In both camps there is a restaurant, bar, lounge and swimming pool. An exclusive alternative is Sasaab, comprising 9 Moroccan style guest tents on a hillside overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River in an area owned by a Samburu community.
The traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local Samburu people are an important part of the experience. Led by Samburu guides, guests enjoy a feeling of exclusivity, of having an incredibly large area totally on their own, and a high level of comfort and tailor-made service.

This morning we travel by light aircraft to Kenya’s northern frontier.Wild and rugged, Samburu is fiercely beautiful with its arid savannahs watered by the lovely Uaso Nyiro River.
It is also one of Kenya’s most protected areas and home to species only found north of the equator, from the reticulated giraffe to Grevy’s zebras and Beisa oryxes. We also enjoy , our luxurious hostelry set beneath a canopy of acacia trees along the banks of the river.
Dawn breaks in golden bands as we start our day in the bush by scanning the river from our tent’s veranda with a cup of steaming coffee in hand. Before the dew is off the grass, we’re off in pursuit of the elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetahs that thrive in the reserve’s grasslands and acacia woodlands.
