Samburu National Reserve May 26, 2009

A busy day today with three really great game runs! The early morning game run highlight was finding a lioness and her 4 cubs down by the river, while the mid-day run was to help Daniel check out another camp - Elephant Bedroom that some of his clients had expressed an interest in. The afternoon game run was highlighted by a visit to the Samburu village by Archer's Gate, followed by a short visit to Samburu Lodge to see the crocodile feeding.
