Not only is the park home to iconic animals such as elephants, lions, and leopards, but it’s also home to the Samburu Special Five – a quintet of five animals found nowhere else in Kenya. The Samburu Special Five flying safari gives you the opportunity to spot both the Big Five and the park’s ‘Special Five’ – reticulated giraffes, Somali ostrich, gerenuk, besia oryx, and the Grevy’s zebra.
