The view of the Acacia savanna in Samburu.
During the mid to late 90's I had the privilege of traveling to Africa a number of times and on one of those occasion I participated in a safari to northern Kenya & southern Ethiopia.
The trip involved safaris to various parks and reserves. We spent about a week and a half up in Samburu-Shaba and Buffalo Springs Reserve as well as Mount Kenya. After some time in Samburu-Shaba, we traveled overland through the northern stretches of Kenya and even crossed over in to Ethiopia to visit Omo National Park in the south west region of the country.
The adventure was both spectacular and grueling. The roads in this part of Africa are atrocious to say the least. Much of the habitat we traveled through was fairly disturbed but there were stretches of the far north of Kenya where game was spotted well outside the game reserves which have become biological islands surrounded by devastated habitat. But this was more than a decade ago and things do change (usually for the worse) in Africa.
The images below represent some of the animals we saw on our journeys to these areas.
