We started our annual Great Migration Safari slightly differently this year, by heading further north into Kenya, to a wonderful place called Samburu. This area is known for what they call, the ‘special five’. You can find leopards, lions, elephants and a host of other species, but the special five are the gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, grevy’s zebra, somali ostrich and beisa oryx – all of which we managed to find on the first day! All these new species sent the cameras into overdrive. The bird life is also very cool, and our lists got filled quite quickly. The adorable little dik-dik’s running around the camp only add to the experience, and give lots of good photographic opportunities.
Major sightings of the day:
Herd of elephants
Herd of buffalo
3 male elephants
