Land coverage

West Gate Conservancy stretches along Ewaso Nyiro river to the west of Samburu National Reserve – hence its name. Its landscape is dominated by acacia scrubland dotted with rocky outcrops and a green ribbon of riparian plant growth along the Ewaso Nyiro. The scenery might be not exactly as charming and varied as that of the National Reserve, yet it is a perfect spot for wildlife encounters and will thrill those travellers who are looking for a more private experience of the African bush and at the same time want to get a deep insight into the lifestyle of the local Samburu people. 

Measuring 400 sqkm, Westgate is a safe haven for up to 500 heads of the rare Grevy’s zebra (hence the West Gate Conservancy’s moto “We cherish to Conserve – The Grevvy zebra is our Gold”), numerous elephants, lesser kudu, Somali ostrich, Grant’s gazelle, impala, warthog and waterbuck. 

Being sandwiched between the Ewaso Nyiro in the south, Meibae Conservancy to the west and Kalama Conservancy, respectively Samburu National Reserve to the east, West Gate’s ecological role as an important wildlife corridor for animals moving between the river and the conservancies further to the north can’t be overestimated.
