Samburu National Reserve in Kenya lies north of Nairobi, adjoining with Buffalo Springs and Shaba National Reserve. The lifeline of these three reserves is the palm fringed Uaso Nyiro River that attracts vast and varied herds of game, abundant bird life to its crocodile and hippo infested waters. Samburu National Reserve has an endless pageant of wildlife with frequent nocturnal visits from the leopard family right from the door of your safari lodge or camp in Samburu.

Samburu in Kenya has excellent game spots for reticulate giraffe, the unusual Beisa Oryx with its lovely long straight horns, gleaming black and white coat impala, blue legged Somali ostrich, waterbuck, Grant's gazelles, dik dik, duiker, olive baboons, gerenuks, lions, spotted and striped hyenas. 

The higher hills at the south end of Samburu reserve offers lovely views of the Uaso Nyiro River. Crocodiles at this river hibernate during the dry seasons when the river dies up. There are quite a few safari lodges and camps. The famous Samburu Lodge and its crocodile bar offers the chance to get within kissing distance of these man eaters, with only a foot high fence keeping them from nibbling on one's toes. These crocodiles exceed six meters (20 ft) from snout to tail. Larsens Camp is also one the oldest camp with one the best locations to stay in Samburu.
