As we will be staying three nights at Samburu Game lodge, we should have enough time to explore the 390km of the Reserve and hopefully spot many animals. I still have not seen any wild dogs on any of our African trips so that would be the nr 1 on my wish list but the chances are slim that we get to see them during our Kenyan trip. Our friend and guide Jackon only saw them twice in the last ten years but who knows perhaps we are lucky. I have not set my mind on anything specific so we go with the flow but I hope to come back with some great memories and perhaps some decent pictures.
Perhaps there is also a chance to visit a samburu or turkana tribe village while the kids enjoy some free time at the pool.
The climate at Samburu is normally hot and dry with temperatures in excess of 30°C. April is however the start of the season of the long rains but as we arrive at the beginning of the rain season we may (or may not) be lucky.
I would have loved to go up further north on this trip to lake Turkana but for safety reasons it is not advisable to do so. Samburu will be the most northern region we will visit during this trip.
