Accommodation Samburu, Buffalo Springs & Shaba:
Wide variety of accommodation options available for all budgets, including safari lodges, tented camps, private houses and campsites.
Recommended number of days:
Due the amount to be seen in the reserves we feel at least a TWO to THREE day safari is suitable for the Samburu Ecosystem.
If you are interested in birding photography, it might be worth to stay longer for getting the ultimate photo.
Fika Safaris travel suggestion:
We would suggest to add on a few more days to see more of Kenya.
Samburu, Buffalo Springs & Shaba works well when combined with Lake Naivasha or the Laikipia Plateau.
Or finish your holiday relaxing on an exotic beach with water activities along the Kenyan coast.
