When To Travel

The long dry season from July to October is the Best Time to Visit Samburu Reserve. You enjoy sunny, blue skies with almost no rain. Water sources are limited due to the absence of rainfall, so the animals congregate along the Ewaso River to drink and feed.


  • Game Drives: Discover thrilling game drives to explore Samburu’s unique landscapes, including acacia woodlands, riverine forests, and open savannah. Encounter the Samburu Special Five, which includes the reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, beisa oryx, and gerenuk, in addition to other iconic African wildlife.
  • Photography: Capture stunning landscapes, unique wildlife species, and colourful Samburu culture with your camera. The reserve’s dramatic scenery and rare species provide fantastic photographic opportunities.
  • Birdwatching: Samburu is a paradise for birdwatchers, with over 450 bird species. Spot vultures, hornbills, eagles, and numerous other avian treasures.
