Safari in Samburu National Park - Samburu Tours Itinerary, Cost, & Package

Samburu National Reserve Safari will see you head to the southeastern part of the Samburu District in the Samburu County (former Rift Valley Province). It borders Ewaso Nyiro River to the south and neighbours the famous Buffalo Springs National Reserve.  

Samburu reserve covers 165 sq km and is only 345 km from Nairobi, Kenya’s capital. A 3-day Sambu safari from Nairobi will see you explore this park to the fullest. That means coming across hundreds of wildlife, including over 900 elephants and Samburu special five (Grevy Zebra, Reticulated Giraffe, Somali Ostrich, Beisa Oryx, and Gerenuk). 

You can experience all these and more when you book your safari to Samburu National Park with

Summarised, 3 Days Samburu National Reserve Safari for UK Citizens

The Detailed 3 Days Ol Pejeta Conservancy Safari for UK Citizens

You safari in Samburu National Park is best combined with a visit to Ol Pejeta Conservancy or Meru National ParkLet’s look at what you can expect during your Samburu tour with the best safari company in Kenya,

Day 1: Arrival in Kenya, Road Trip to Samburu, & Evening Game Drive

We’ve established an effective “pick-up” process that has been favourable to our clients over the last two decades. The first step in the ‘process’ requires you to book a flight that lands in the country by 5 a.m. 

The second one is picking you up on time and briefing you about the safari accordingly. From here, the professional safari guide welcomes you to your exclusive safari land cruiser and start the road trip to Samburu.

This trip involves making a stopover at the Equator Market in Nanyuki, where you can pay a small fee to have the Coriolis Effect experiment done. You should be at Samburu by noon, where the guide will help you check in the lodge or camp. 

The safari guide will leave you there to relax, have lunch, and then pick you up for an afternoon game drive at 3 p.m. The afternoon-evening game drives in the Samburu are undeniably ethereal as they help you soak in the magical ambience of the reserve.

Here we are talking of the roaming wildlife, the tranquil ambience, the chirping birds, and the pristine wilderness.

Day 2: Full-Day Game Drive at Samburu National Reserve with Packed Lunch

Samburu is mystic. It is rugged and unspoiled, beautifully different and serene. Nothing captures this beauty better than a morning game drive. You are in the heart of the park at sunrise, surrounded by the calm and wondrous beauty. 

The first attraction is the Samburu special five that features the Beisa Oryx, Gerenuk, Reticulated Giraffe, Somali Ostrich, and Grevy Zebra.  And then there is the scenery, a riveting beauty featuring the Ewaso Nyiro River, a vast expanse of unspoiled remote wilderness, and lush grasslands. 

The first leg of your game drives ends with a delicious lunch taken at the heart of the park. Your afternoon game drive commences immediately after lunch. The Samburu wildlife and the sheer vastness will be your fascination this afternoon.

It plays heaven to over 900 individual elephants and vast numbers of predators like lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Also, keep your eyes peeled for Grant’s gazelles, dik-dik, olive baboons, warthogs, waterbucks, and elands. 

Samburu evening game drives are lively and dumbfoundingly beautiful. There is the sunset, the mild evening temperatures, and the increased number of wildlife sightings.

Day 3: Morning Game Drive and Transfer to Nairobi for Your Flight

You end your Samburu tour on a high note by heading out for one last morning game drive. The guide makes it count by helping you spot the wildlife you might have missed on previous game drives

At around 10 a.m., the safari guide leaves the park and transfer you to Nairobi for your international flight.
