The Samburu area of Kenya is one of the countries lesser known gems. The area is home to three national reserves (Samburu, Buffalo Springs, & Shaba). While these reserves are not well known, they have an unsurpassed beauty. Shaba, the least visited, has amazing landscapes of rocky hills, natural springs and palms. The Samburu people are possibly one of the more interesting tribes in Kenya. Similar to Maasai, Samburu speak Maa and are traditional animal herders. The Samburu warrior is the most feared by Kenyans.
