After enjoying what unspoiled nature offers us in this magnificent place, all that remains is to visit the Samburu villages. Here it is possible to spend moments of daily life with the homonymous tribe from which the reserve takes its name. Get ready to get in touch with a world of long lost culture and traditions that will make you experience unforgettable and unrepeatable emotions.

The Samburu Reserve has also been a center of interest for conservationists and researchers: in the 1950s a couple of conservationists, George and Joy Adamson, looked after and adopted as a child, a lioness cub orphaned during a safari. The two took care of the animal from the first weeks of life and once she grew up Elsa was reinserted, thanks to the hard work of Joy and her husband, in its natural habitat.

Their story echoed internationally and was made famous by the autobiographical novel “Born Free”, which became a best-seller and was later followed by the film of the same name.
