I have over 600 photos in the first couple days of my trip! The selection below has been carefully edited for your viewing pleasure to give you just a taste of how just one place, can have so much variety. Saruni Samburu is:
– a luxurious tented lodge.
– with delicious Italian food, the owner Riccardo hails from Italy, served by Sebastian (he will always claim it’s squirrel– it’s not, it’s pasta).
– surrounded by some of the most ruggedly beautiful settings.
– with five species that can only be found in Eastern Africa (pictures are all below).
BUT…what makes it truly unique is the dedication to the local community, through employment, co-operatives and renting the land from the people.
Including driver and guide LEPAYON who managed to hold his calm when the elephants decided we had gotten a bit too close (below).
THE UNIQUE FIVE YOU WON’T FIND ON SAFARIS OUTSIDE OF NORTHERN KENYA/EASTERN AFRICA:
1. Beisa Oryx
AND WHO JUST DOESN’T GET EXCITED ABOUT THESE GUYS?
The lioness patiently waiting to feed her two cubs. She was hunting alone and ended up feasting on a baboon
Baboon, and no, not the same one that the lioness above ate
ELEPHANTS! These guys are everywhere
