A Day in Pictures – Samburu: Wamba, Kenya

Wamba, population 4,000, is a small town in the Samburu region of north central Kenya. It is located on the edge of the Mathews Range and near the Samburu National Reserve. Although Wamba is located on a dirt road, the main northbound road to the Ethiopian border is just a few miles away. Wamba is a semi-arid environment with unpredictable rainfall.

We spent the better part of a week here as we explored the communities in the area. This provided us with the opportunity to observe and take a series of pictures of everyday life in this remote part of Kenya. Enjoy!
