Samburu Visuals

The use of traveling is to regulate imagination with reality, and instead of thinking of how things may be, see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson

A recent visit to the Samburu National Reserve left me elated and amazed by the picturesque  landscapes and the great deal of game that we came across. The Reserve is located approximately 345 KM away from Kenya’s Nairobi capital in Samburu County. The Ewaso Nyiro River cuts across the southern corridor of the reserve. Here are some of  the stunning visuals from Samburu National Reserve…



A beautiful sight to behold as an elephant browses with it’s young one



The reserve is characterised by a great deal of fallen trees courtesy of the Elephants. I was bewildered to see Elephants falling asleep while standing

A shy one perhaps?


The animals are the best models of the wild…


The reticulated giraffe,  also referred to as the Samburu giraffe is known for its unique patterns. Can you spot the little bird on the giraffe’s abdomen?

Ooops, Nature at work. The Grevvy Zebra is however quite stunning and unique…


Someone help me out…I’m always confusing antelopes and gazelles
