Samburu National Reserve is situated on the northern wilderness of Kenya. The Uaso Nyiro River cuts through this reserve, drawing a big population of wildlife in the reserve. The river bustles with activity from its huge population of Nile crocodiles. The reserve’s topography is mainly open savannah (grassland) with clusters of acacia trees, forest, thorn trees and grassland vegetation. The game reserve is renowned for its rare species of animals unique to the park, namely: the long necked gerenuk, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe and Beisa Oryx. The elusive Kenya leopard is a resident here. Other Kenyan wildlife present in the park includes cheetahs and lions, as well as elephants, buffalo and hippos. Birdlife is as plentiful as wildlife at Samburu National Reserve, which boasts over 350 different species of birds including vultures, kingfishers, marabous, bateleurs, guinea fowl, Somali ostriches and others.
