Samburu National Reserve, Kenya

Situated at the southeastern corner of Samburu District in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya, Samburu National Reserve is home to a wide variety of animal and bird life. It is famed for rare northern specialist species such as the Grevy Zebra, Somali Ostrich, Reticulated Giraffe, Gerenuk and the Beisa Oryx, according to samburu.net. The “grassland and acacia-dotted landscapes” of the reserve is also popular with a minimum of 900 elephants. Large predators such as the Lion, Leopard and Cheetah are an important attraction, including wild dog sightings, the website adds.

Birdlife is also abundant with over 450 species recorded. Sources say the reserve was one of the two areas in which conservationists George and Joy Adamson raised Elsa the Lioness, made famous in the best-selling book and award-winning movie Born Free.
