Samburu National Reserve is a premium safari destination in Kenya for lovers of authentic game safaris and wildlife, not to mention that this is also a bird-watching paradise. Morning and evening game drives give us a chance to witness large herds of herbivore mammals and their carnivore predators interacting in their natural environment.
The Samburu National Reserve was one of the two areas in which conservationists George Adamson and Joy Adamson raised Elsa made famous in the best-selling book and award-winning movie Born Free. The Samburu National Reserve is also the home of Kamunyak, a lioness famous for adopting Oryx calves.
Lake Nakuru National Park is dominated by a gentle undulating terrain with open bush and woodlands, typical of the dry rift valley vegetation. Twenty-seven percent of the park is composed of the Lake Nakuru waters. The Park was declared a Rhino Sanctuary in 1983. The Rhino stocking program which ensued received white rhinos from South Africa. Currently, the sanctuary has approximately 45 black and 31 white rhinoceros. The Park lies in the volcanic–strewn Great Rift Valley, one of the chains of 8 lakes.
