National Reserves

In Northern Kenya, we are lucky enough to have access to three incredible National Reserves, Buffalo Springs, Samburu and Shaba. Lined with doum palms the Ewaso Nyiro River winds its way through all three reserves, breaking up the arid landscapes; it is a favourite watering spot for all the wildlife.
National Reserves are generally managed by County Governments; Buffalo Springs and Shaba reserve are both managed by Isiolo County and Samburu is managed by Samburu County Government.
