_Samburu, Shaba and Buffalo Springs
On the southern edge of Kenya's northern frontier region, the Uaso Nyiro River carves through the desolate lands, and provides life to the wonderful reserves of Samburu, Shaba and Buffalo Springs.
The water is vital for the survival of the many animals found in this region, as well as for the local Samburu tribes who have settled in the area.
Especially rewarding during the dry season, when the surrounding land is parched and cracked, these reserves play host to several unique species, and great numbers of predators.
Being some of the more remote tourist destinations of Kenya, there is a great sense of adventure in visiting these reserves. Heading into the north of Kenya, there is very little human habitation, and the true wilderness is evident.
