6N/7D DESERT ROSE & GNUS (ex NAIROBI)
In the arid North of Kenya, water means life. The waters of the great Ewaso Nyiro river draw wildlife in great numbers
to its banks, creating an oasis of green. This river flows through three great northern reserves, Samburu, Buffalo Springs
and Shaba. This is spectacular country, set against a backdrop of the mighty Mountain Ol Olokwe. The verdant riverine
forest is a stark contrast to the arid thorn studded plains. Samburu is visited by large herds of Elephants, drawn by the
promise of water. In the dry season, the elephants use their tusks to dig deep into the dry river beds, unearthing
precious water. These waterholes then become a focal point for other game. The Samburu region is the best place to
find several endemic Northern species, including Gerenuk, the Reticulated Giraffe, and Grevy’s Zebra.
