Rise early and set out for a morning game drive. The park is known for its incredible birdlife, so be sure to have your binoculars ready to spot some of the over 450 bird species that reside here. As you explore the park, you’ll come across the Ewaso Ng’iro River, a lifeline for the animals that inhabit the region. Here, you might spot bathing elephants, crocodiles, and hippos. Afterward, take an optional break from the game drives and immerse yourself in the local Samburu culture by visiting a traditional village. Interact with the Samburu people, learn about their customs, and witness their vibrant dances and traditional rituals.

Day 3: Samburu to Nairobi

After the morning game drive, return to your lodge for a delicious breakfast before bidding farewell to Samburu National Reserve and start your journey back to Nairobi. Reflect on the incredible memories you’ve made during your safari, and perhaps stop at a local curio shop to pick up souvenirs before reaching Nairobi city.
