Samburu National Park, Kenya bounces back

Samburu National Park is open again for business after flooding at the beginning of 2010.  Properties including Sarova Shaba, Elephant Bedroom Camp, Larsens Camp, Samburu Lodge, Joy’s Camp and Ashnil Samburu Camp have reopened and are welcoming guests.  One of Kenya’s lesser-known national parks, Samburu, is situated alongside the Ewaso Nyiro River and there is plenty to attract wildlife from the surrounding savannah plains.  The reserve is rich in wildlife with an abundance of rare northern specialist species such as the Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and the beisa oryx (also referred to as the ‘Samburu Special Five’). It is also home to over 900 elephants and large predators such as the lion, leopard and cheetah.
