The allure of Samburu holidays lies in the region's quiet serenity and the feeling of being a world away from anywhere. The park itself is characterised by narrow, riverine woodland of palm and acacia with bush, grass and scrubland. It forms part of a lava plain with distinctive red dirt, broken volcanic clinker and rocky outcrop. The glowing waters of the Ewaso Ng'iro feed and irrigate the lush Samburu National Reserve,
drawing in hosts of animals from miles around. Many of the rarer species of Africa are found here - reticulated giraffes, beisa oryx and Grevy's zebra, along with the regular characters in abundance. To the east of Mount Kenya lies Meru National Park, which was devastated by poaching in the late 20th Century but is now thriving again and home to the real big five and many rare species. Often referred to as 'a complete wilderness' Meru is one of the most beautiful parks in Kenya. Finally, to the northern half of Kenya - the so-called Northern Frontier District - is a less well explored but equally fascinating part of the country. It might sound like a small region, but basically occupies the top half of the country. To the west the Rift Valley Lakes are havens for flamingo and myriad other birds, while further north still Lake Turkana, the Jade Sea, lies amidst the desert wilderness.
