Samburu Vacations

Globetrotters looking for a place close to lovely mountains, valleys and savannahs that remain unspoiled by the excesses of mass tourism, are sure to enjoy Samburu and surrounding towns in Kenya.

Samburu is situated approximately 240 miles (386 kilometers) southeast of Nairobi, the country's capital.

For a deeper knowledge of the region, why not take a road trip and check out the cities, towns and villages in the area of Samburu. Kaloleni, is 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west, and Mombasa can be found 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the northwest.

The most rewarding places for tourists to visit when they arrive in a new place are the ones that offer a window into the local culture. Don't skip Kenya's craft workshops.

There can be times when the most enjoyable way to get a feel for a place is by tapping into the expertise of locals. The region offers some fascinating wildlife safaris and wildlife spotting tours.

Make sure you treat your tastebuds for a tour of Kenya's cafés and restaurants. Locals in this area frequently use potato and maize in their kitchen. Favorite dishes are ugali (cornmeal) and irio (mashed peas and potato mix), but there are many other mouthwatering options to choose from. Request chilled banana cream at the finish of your main dishes. This is a popular choice for locals and tourists. For a non-alcoholic option, enjoy Picana (mango juice).

Even the best vacation can't go on forever, so when it's time go home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Mombasa, 30 miles (48 kilometers) away.
