Explore Northern Kenya

Kenya’s northern safari circuit is very different in character from its more popular southern counterpart. It is centred upon the contiguous Samburu and Buffalo Springs national reserves, tracts of arid, thorny bush that flank the perennial Ewaso Ngiro River, but also include the nearby and climatically similar Shaba National Reserve and the underutilised Meru National Park. Not only do these reserves possess a wilder and relatively untrammelled mood than the ones to their south, but they also host a collection of unique dry-country endemics – the outsized Grevy’s zebra, the striking reticulated giraffe, and the oddball gerenuk.
