“Beautiful National Park”

Shaba National Reserve
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

If you are with a good guide and time your visit you can experience the wildlife while rarely seeing another vehicle. The area along the river is most productive for wildlife.

This National Park is different from others in Kenya as the landscape is v dry and rocky. The animals too are unique like the Grevy’s Zebra and the reticulated giraffe the oryx. We saw plenty of elephants and lots of camels.....those could be from Ethopia

Shaba, Samburu and the Buffalo Reserve National Park all border each other and are a place to see animals not possible to see in the south of Kenya.While being off the normal safari route if you would like a different safari experience visit these three parks.

I had seen Samburu in the bbc documentary series and it certainly lived up to our expectations . I travelled with my two daughters, in their twenties, one is a conservationist, , and we had a wonderful time.
