Get to Know Samburu Buffalo Springs National Park

The sister reserves are a patchwork of riverine forests and gorges, palm groves and savannah plains where you’ll find Kenya’s Special Five animals

All three of these national reserves – Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba – are in Samburu country in northern Kenya. Samburu National Reserve is north of the Ewaso Ngiro River which provides much-needed water to the reserve’s inhabitants during the long dry season. Buffalo Springs is just south of the river and Shaba to the east of these two, on the other side of the A2 highway or Great North Road, as it’s known. The greater Samburu ecosystem is where Kenya’s endangered and rare Special Five can be seen – Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, beisa oryx, gerenuk and Somali ostrich.

Why Samburu Buffalo Springs?

  • The Samburu 5 – Grevy’s Zebra, Reticulated Giraffe, Beisa Oryx, Gerenuk and Somali Ostrich – can only be found in this part of Kenya
  • Samburu connects to two other parks, Shaba and Buffalo Springs, with no interruption – linking the three of them into one large park
  • The area is well-known as a walking destination, in particular for walking safaris with camels, part of the Samburu way of life
  • This area is home to the Samburu people, cousins to the Maasai. Up here their culture has remained relatively undisturbed by the modern world and they are proud to share their ways and knowledge with visitors
