Day 2, 3: Samburu Game Reserve. Begin your exploration of this magnificent country as you drive on its rugged roads, through rich farm land, en route to Samburu Reserve, which lies 200 miles north of Nairobi on the hot and arid fringes of the vast northern region of Kenya. Arrive in time for lunch followed by a game viewing drive. On the second day, you will morning and afternoon game drives with all meals and overnight at your camp.
The reserve is within the lands of the colorful Samburu people, close relatives of the Maasai, and home to a number of wildlife species rarely found elsewhere in Kenya: Grevy's zebra, reticulated giraffe, and Beisa Oryx, all found only north of the equator. The graceful gerenuk, an antelope with its characteristic long neck, spends much of its time in a bipedal stance seeking relaxation in the sparse scrub that grows in this harsh terrain. This dramatic landscape is blanketed by the hot equatorial sun for most of the year. Relief comes from the cool waters of the Uaso Nyiro ("Brown") River, which rises to the west on the foothills of the Aberdares and which vanishes beyond Samburu in the soggy expanse known as the Lorian swamp. The scenery in Samburu is magnificent and the birdlife awesome. Elephant Bedroom Camp is located in the Samburu Game Reserve by the Uaso Nyiro River. This is the perfect lodge from which to view large numbers of elephants using the river to drink, bathe and play. Huge troops of baboons patrol the riverbanks daily and in the camp itself vervet monkeys socialize in the trees. Each of the 24 exclusive, comfortable, deluxe tents gives perfect views of the river, surrounding beautiful landscapes and all life this brown river supports. Every spacious tent consists of a king size or twin beds, dressing area, sitting area, luggage rack, and en suite facilities. Elephant Bedroom Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
