This is the ultimate luxury tented camp!! Beautiful accommodations, extremely friendly staff and excellent 4 course gourmet meals. This was far and above my favorite of the many lodges in which we stayed.

i took a trip with Vintage Africa. I had the best time and the tour agency and their vehicles and guides were the very best. We felt they were part of our family. They went above and beyond their job. We had the best accommodations and safaris. We loved Samburu Reserve and Sweet Water. Loved the tents. Would love to... More

If you're wondering about visiting Samburu Game Preserve--do not hesitate!!! It's sooo worth the time to get here, whether by car or plane. The landscape is wild, rugged, and stunningly beautiful. The number and variety of wildlife is terrific. Since hearing rave reviews from people I met two yrs ago, saying Samburu Intrepids was their favorite lodging on their Kenya... More

Loved every minute in the Samburu Intrepids Luxury Tented Camp. This was our favorite place in our entire Kenya/Tanzania trip. The atmosphere is great as is the food and the service. This is tent camping at it's best. Wake up to coffee/tea and cookies delivered to your tent. Had a massage at the spa - wonderful. Great experience.

Location is beautiful. Tents are comfortable, if a little small. Clean bathrooms, toilets, 24/7 hot water, all toiletries, large towels and bathrobes. Although tents were good inside, one always feels very close to the wild nature, because the tents are always surrounded by numerous monkeys which can intimidate children and some adults too. So, a sundowner drink or a snack... More

We stayed at Samburu Intrepids for three nights in early October 2014. Our driver picked us up from the airstrip and, to our surprise, were treated to a game drive on our way to Intrepids as it is one of the furthest lodges in the park. We saw giraffe, gazelles, elephants, zebra and many other animals before being warmly greeted... More

we had a three night trip here, staying in the Morani tents. These tents are as close to 5 star standard as you can get. Plus the food was plentiful and the staff very helpful and accommodating. Wifi is available but is not as good as it should be. Added to the excellence of the game in the reserve leaves... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The permanent lodges (tents) are super. The food in the restaurant is excellent. There is a small outdoor pool which is not supervised. Massage facilities and manicure/pedicure also available. Talks on wildlife and the native people are given each evening for around half an hour. Safari trips in jeeps and walks also... More

Wonderful place for a relaxing get away. We stayed two nights, wished we could have stayed more. We thought having a toddler (1yr) and 4yr old would be a challenge but it was all great. Older kids will also be kept busy by the adventure club and pool.
