Experience a once-in-a-lifetime excitement of getting up close and personal with wildlife on foot — an experience heightened by the critically endangered black rhinos in Kenya. Your adventure will take place at Sera Community Conservancy, where your skilled Samburu guides will transport you a little distance away from the nearest rhino, then leave the vehicle and approach the grazing rhino within meters. The anticipation is palpable as you approach the rhino for the first time; heart beating, pulse racing, curiosity and excitement increasing – it doesn’t get any better than this!
The thrills don’t stop there. Following your encounters with ‘the supreme rhino of Sera,’ you will encounter a variety of other wildlife opportunities and experiences, including game drives to see Samburu special five (Oryx, Gerenuk, Masai Ostrich, Grevy’s Zebra and Reticulated Giraffe), as well as buffalo, elephants, antelope, and a diverse range of birdlife.
Sera is also home to ‘Kisima Hamsini,’ a series of (50!) springs where local pastoralists bring their animals to water, digging out water from the wells to fill holders and troughs. The Singing Wells are also a short drive away and may be visited with advance notice — it’s a unique experience to observe the local population singing proprietary tunes recognized only by their own cattle to entice them to drink from the wells.
Additionally, you can also pay a visit to the nearby Reteti Elephant Sanctuary in Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, which is located in the remote Mathews Range and provides shelter for orphaned and abandoned elephants calves with the goal of reintroducing them into the wild herds adjacent to the Sanctuary.
