Welcome to Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy
Eight kilometres north of Archer’s Post, and abutting the northern boundary of Samburu National Reserve, is the 384-sq-km Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy, which opened in 2004. Although the conservancy is home to Grevy’s zebras, elephants and reticulated giraffes, among others, and acts as a vital wildlife corridor for animals migrating between the Samburu and Marsabit areas, its drier habitat means animals are considerably less visible than in Samburu. On a more positive note, you will pretty much have the place to yourself. It can also be used as a base for safaris in nearby reserves and, best of all, walking is allowed, unlike in Samburu.
Only guests of the lodge or those booked for camping are allowed to enter the conservancy. The conservation fee is included in the cost of the camping.
