Imagine watching the sun set by the banks of River Ewaso Ngiro as you prepare to pitch tent and enjoy your night in the wild.
Imagine spending the night with strangers who are just about to be friends,enjoying the bonfire, playing games,sharing food, and listening to the river ripple and sounds from the wild.
Imagine listening to Elephants trumpet, grunt or snort from a very close distance.
Well, This was my reality last weekend. A dream come true.

I chose the Samburu game drive and camping as a birthday gift to myself. A choice I am glad I made.
I traveled to Samburu National Reserve with my friend Zulfa and a couple of beautiful strangers who later became friends. This was a momentous trip.
”Samburu National Reserve is a game reserve on the banks of the Ewaso Ng’iro river in Kenya. The Reserve can be entered via the Ngare Mare and Buffalo Springs gates. Once inside the reserve, there are two mountains visible: Koitogor and Ololokwe.
Samburu National Reserve is very peaceful and attracts animals because of the Ewaso Ng’iro river (meaning “brown water” and pronounced U-aa-so-Nyee-ro) that runs through it and the mixture of acacia, riverine forest, thorn trees and grassland vegetation.
The Ewaso Ng’iro flows from the Kenyan highlands and empties into the famous Lorian Swamp. The natural serenity that is evident here is due to its distance from industry and the inaccessibility of the reserve for many years” .
