This watercourse strategically divides the Buffalo Springs and the main Samburu Game Reserve, creating an ideal setting to observe the spectacle of elephants engaging in mud wallowing, drinking, and skillfully crossing the river. Samburu Game Reserve is not only a haven for these gentle giants but also plays host to Africa’s big cats – cheetahs, lions, and leopards, offering a thrilling encounter with the apex predators. Adding to the allure of Samburu are its smaller feline residents, including the elusive caracal.
Amidst this semi-arid terrain, the landscape is adorned with the singular branched palm tree found only in Africa – the doum trees.
