Tents were lovely and luxurious, with personal wakeup calls complete with tea, coffee, and cookies. A Samburu warrior protected our food from monkeys and played African flute to pass the time while we dined. Wildlife in the park was bountiful and beautiful. Food was good. Evening lectures were interesting. We felt very welcomed.

If you are going on safari and enjoy GOOD food, learning and a friendly environment then intrepids is perfect. My wife and I were made to feel very welcome and special. I have visited the other lodges on samburu but intrepids is by far the best and the best value for money and we WILL definitely return. Credit to all... More

This is our second time staying here and it was a pleasure to return. The success of your trip can depend a lot on your safari guide and we can't say enough about Phoenix Safaris out or Nairobi who we have used for the past 6 years. We stayed for two day and went on 4 game drives. The animals... More

Stayed 2 nights in July - travelled as a family so had a family tent with interconnected rooms which was great. Monkeys constantly around tent & we had an elephant visitor outside the tent at night which woke us up eating next to our tent & was quite scary until we realised what it was ! Food was excellent -... More

They have excellent food selection, great location along the river. Our stay was interrupted during the night as a elephant kept trying to get on the grounds. so the staff were on... More

This lodge is beautiful and is located right next to the river. Beautiful trees all around. The tent is first rate all the way. Full bath with hot showers all the time. Netted beds for keeping bugs out although I never saw a bug in the tent. The deck faces the river. We were in no. 9. I enjoyed it... More

I spent four nights at this "tented" lodge. The lodge its self is beautiful, as are the grounds, the tents are comfortable and well appointed and the staff is warm and friendly. I have never stayed at a larger lodge so this was a good contrast with the two porini camps I visited. The lodge is built along a river... More

We were really lucky to see some amazing sights whilst here, including seeing a leopard and her cub on 3 separate occasions including with a fresh kill up a tree.

Once again a visit to Samburu Intrepids was a tremendous experience. We had the same warm welcome, familiar faces so pleased to see us & our regular tents; all guaranteed to remind of us of why we love it there so. Regrettably (for the camp, but not for us) it was very quiet & for a few nights, the four... More
