Samburu National Game Reserve
Samburu National Game Reserve North of the Equator lies Samburu (which means Butterfly), 225 km2, in an area still known as the Northern Frontier District. A beautifully dramatic landscape of semi desert, with blue hazy mountains in the distance, gently swaying Doum palm trees, and the even gentler trickling of the Ewaso Nyiro and Isiolo Rivers; wild and untamed, this is one of Kenya’s last true remaining wilderness areas.
Lake Nakuru National Park
Lake Nakuru National Park is situated in Central Kenya, 140km north-west of Nairobi, in Nakuru District of the Rift Valley Province. The lake catchment is bounded by Menengai crater to the north, the Bahati hills to the north east, the lion hill ranges to the east, Eburu crater to the south and the Mau escarpment to the west. Three major rivers, the Njoro, Makalia and Enderit drain into the lake, together with the outflow from several springs along the shore. The lake supports huge numbers of lesser flamingo.
The Maasai Mara
The Maasai Mara is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual wildebeest migration from July to October - a migration so immense it has to be seen to be believed. The Maasai Mara Game Reserve although not the largest game park in Kenya, is one of the most spectacular and most popular game reserves in Kenya. Rich in game, the rolling grasslands and acacia savannah have frequently been captured on film, with "Out of Africa" being the most famous.
