Many of the villages near the Samburu National Reserve have adapted their nomadic culture to stay close to the game parks and have grown accustomed to the tourist trade. A typical village may have as many as twenty or thirty homes made of grasses and sticks with thatched roofs surrounded by a thorn boma to keep out lion and hyena.  Their livestock is brought into the village at night after a long day grazing.
