Samburu National Park
Samburu National Reserve is situated within the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. Measuring approximately 104sq. kilometres (approx. 65sq. miles) in size, this unfenced savannah grassland is roughly 350km (217 miles) from Nairobi. It is relatively small insize compared to other Kenyan parks, such as Tsavo or Masai Mara. The reserve derives its name from the Samburu people of Kenya who have lived in the area for many years.
The Ewaso Nyiro River cuts through this reserve, drawing a big population of Kenya animals to the park. The river bustles with activity from its huge population of Nile crocodile.
