The water is believed to originate from Chuyulu Hills, via an underground river.

NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK

A short drive out of Nairobi’s central business district is Nairobi National Park, Kenya’s first national park established in 1946. Nairobi National Park is iconic for its wide open grass plains and scattered acacia bush with the city of Nairobi’s skyscrapers in the backdrop. Despite its small size and proximity to human civilization, this park plays host to a wide variety of wildlife including lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse birdlife with over 400 species recorded. As well, it is home to one of Kenya’s most successful rhino sanctuaries, and you are likely to see the endangered black rhino here.

SAMBURU NATIONAL RESERVE

Samburu National Reserve is bordered by the Ewaso Ng’iro River in the southeastern corner of Samburu District in the Rift Valley. The reserve is remarkable for its plethora of rare northern specialist species such as the Somali Ostrich, Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy Zebra, Gerenuk, and the Beisa Oryx, as well as its abundance of elephants. Large predators such as the big cats are likely to be spotted here, as are wild dogs. Birdlife, a combination of the arid northern bush country species and a number of riverine forest species, is copious with over 450 species recorded. The threatened lesser kestrel and the Taita falcon both call this reserve their home. Other vulnerable species, namely the African darter, great egret, white-headed vulture, martial eagle and the yellow-billed ox-pecker live here as well. Additionally, the critically endangered pancake tortoise (malacochersus tornieri) is found in the reserve.
