Sam's Exotic Travels to Sambura National Park, Kenya '07

Located in northeast Kenya, the rugged & remote Samburu District is too remote for most tour groups, but is an area of great diversity and beauty with abundant game. This was our first game safari, and even though it was the dry season, elephants, lions, giraffe and small game were found in abundance.

We also visited a Samburu village.  The Samburu are an ethnic group in north central Kenya that are related to but distinct from the Maasai. The Samburu are semi-nomadic pastoralists who herd mainly cattle but also keep sheep, goats and camels. Proud of their culture and traditions, the Samburu still cherish and retain the customs and ceremonies of their forbearers, unlike most other tribes in Kenya who have been influenced by Western civilization.
