Getting There & Away

Airkenya and Safarilink have frequent flights from Nairobi's Wilson Airport to Samburu. You can also fly into Kalama, which is roughly 40km north of the parks.

The vehicle-less can try to wangle a 4WD and driver in Archer’s Post or Isiolo for about US$100 per half-day.

The bridge between Samburu and Buffalo Springs has repeatedly collapsed for years due to flooding and mismanagement. Currently, the bridge cannot be crossed so if you want to visit both Samburu and Buffalo Springs, you'll need to make a long detour back to Archer's Post and the main A2 road, which can take up to three hours. Petrol is available in Archer's Post.
