Kenya Safari Journal - Day 03

Another day at Samburu National Reserve. We started out just as the sun was rising, around 6:15 local time. We were fortunate to run into a cheetah in the bush, and later, a lone impala. We literally almost ran into an elephant (2) (3) and her baby (2). Unique to this area are the Oryx. We also saw a large herd of impala, of which two males were fighting.

Some elephants were walking single file, including a mother and daughters, and continued off into the distance. The reticulated giraffe (2) (3) is able to eat leaves from the Acacia elatior tree by using their long tongues to avoid the thorns and they are often found in groups.

As the sun set, we headed back to camp.
