Photo Tip:

When travellers are in Samburu, Kenya, spending time with the local tribe we recommend to pack a flash to make the most of the portraiture opportunities. The Samburu warriors are very amenable to have their photo taken and this experience is very rewarding both photographically and culturally.

Detailed information

Getting to Samburu is available via one of the daily one-hour flights from Wilson Airport to the airstrip within the Saruni National reserve. The Samburu region of Kenya is unique and differs from the other areas when it comes to vegetation compared to the larger open plain reserves like The Mara and Amboseli.

It is the Samburu area of East Africa which is home to extraordinary and rare species that one rarely gets a chance to see or photograph, these are known as 'The Samburu Special 5'. The strangest of these is the Gerenuk which is also called the long necked gazelle.

Furthermore travellers encounter plenty of Reticulated Giraffes, Somali Ostrich, Grevy’s Zebra and also the unique Beisa (or East African) Oryx which make up the rest of the five. The birdlife is prolific in this area of Kenya with several exotic species including the Somali Bee-eater, Vulturine Guinea Fowl and The Golden Breasted Starlings making for some awesome imagery.

Fantastic sunset shots can be taken with the Doum Palms which are the only example of palm trees with multiple trunks and heads.

A highlight of this fully inclusive photo safari are the Samburu people who are some of the kindest, gentlest and certainly best dressed and adorned of all the Kenyan tribes. They are striking and impressive and most importantly very happy to have their photos taken. Being incredibly proud of their heritage, the Samburu people are photogenic people in general.

The Saruni Samburu offers a fantastic photographic hide within easy reach of the lodge and is a first of its kind in Kenya. Built using a shipping container its seats four photographers in comfort and is starting to produce some great images from the animals drinking in the waterhole just in front.
