Our visit to Buffalo Springs NP.
In september 2011 we visited Buffalo Springs NP in Kenya.
We drove in an open Safari truck so we had a good sight at the different kind of animals that you normally only see in a zoo.
The nature is great and it is quiet because there're not so much tourists as in other NP's. The roads are unsealed but the trip was not too uncomfortable.
We saw a lot of animals but also a lot of birds and that's fine for a birdlover like me.
Highlights are the Lions and a Leopard with its kill in a tree.
We saw p.e.; Lions, Leopard, Gerenuks, Grant's Gazelles, Kirk's dik-dik's, Reticulated giraffes and Gemsboks.
We also saw a lot of birds, like; Yellow-necked spurfowl, White-headed Buffalo-weaver, White-browed Sparrow-weaver, Lilac-breasted roller, Rueppel's long-tailed starling and Brown snake-Eagle.
The Acacia trees and Doumpalms are beuatiful and you can visit a village of a very friendly Samburu tribe.
I'm glad that we have seen this NP and recommend it.

Much the same as Shaba for animals, vegetation and climate. Though not the quantity of animals in comparision to the Mara, one is not disappointed.
