Dinner and Overnight at Simba Lodge
Meal Plan: Full Board
After breakfast, we will depart for another morning game drive and return to the lodge for lunch followed by swimming, games, and relaxation. Late afternoon, we will set off this time, for an evening game drive until sunset to witness the serenity of this reserve. Samburu National
Reserve exudes a peaceful aura that attracts animals and greatly because of the Ewaso Ng'iro river (meaning brown water) that runs through it and surrounded by 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.
