AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN BUFFALO SPRINGS WITH AFRICANMECCA

Buffalo Springs National Reserve offers something for every guest, from thrill-seeking AfricanMecca travelers seeking excitement and adventure to the more introverted guests who prefer to study the smallest details of micro-ecosystems. Game drives are the most popular activity as you safari across vast distances in a custom vehicle with an expert guide sharing knowledge, personal stories and local folklore. Game drives are offered in the morning and afternoon, and we can arrange for a full-day drive that includes a bush lunch. Your heart-pounding trip of Buffalo Springs is your best chance to see some of Kenya’s most popular large mammals. Cheetahs stand at well-chosen vantage points scanning the plans for prey kill while majestic prides of lions rest most of the time, play and then strategize with its female counterparts for an opportune ambush moment. Perhaps you will be lucky enough to spot the elusive leopard on the tree or hiding in the bush. These graceful and skilled hunters are joined by a variety of grazing and foraging herbivores, such as buffalos, impalas, gazelles, hippos, dik-diks, elephants and many more. As you travel along the Ewaso Nyiro River, your guide’s experience is key in noticing signs of Nile crocodiles swimming just below the surface. Buffalo Springs Reserve also has some unique species, such as gerenuks, grevy’s zebras, beisa oryx and reticulated giraffes. Imagine your anticipation of sighting most of these incredible animals!

For AfricanMecca adventurers who prefer more leisurely activities after a game drive or simply need a more relaxed pace, nature and birdwatching walks offer intriguing excursions of Buffalo Springs. Like game drives, you are escorted by a Samburu guide but the pace is set by your personal fitness level and desire to discover smaller details of the bush. Your guide explains traditional methods of tracking, scat and print identification, medicinal uses or plants and much more. You also have the opportunity to peer into branches, brush and other foliage to locate and identify many of the 450 species of avian-life that have been recorded in the reserve (read more on where to stay in Buffalo Springs). Bird lovers are overwhelmed by the diversity that includes common and threatened avi-fauna. Look forward to seeing Somali ostriches, bristle-crowned starlings and shining sunbirds to name a few of the feathered inhabitants. The reserve is also one of the reliable locations for seeing Donaldson Smith’s sparrow weavers. Some of the other species are vultures, marabou storks, guinea fowl and kingfishers. If threatened species are on your wish list of bird species, you will be surprised on what is on offer. The lesser falcons and lesser kestrels in the reserve are globally threatened alongside other regionally vulnerable species. The Samburu people lives are an integral part of the reserve, and cultural tours of Kenyan villages is the finest way to gain insight and appreciation for ancient ways of life. The native tribe welcomes you to their homes and share their beliefs, artwork to craft making, cattle herding techniques and so much more. Families with children can spend time with these tribal men and women learning how to throw spears, milk goats and make jewelry. Romantics can even be blessed by the village elders by renewing their wedding vows in a pristine environ.
