We stayed here four nights. A beautifully located camp on the river with great accommodation. The food was exceptional, albeit somewhat aimed at the western and specifically American market. We asked for a more typical Kenyan meal one night which the chef was happy to cook for us. The staff (espcially Robert) were great and I loved the 'Monkey Scarer'.... More

Working just 2 and a half hours down the road in Nanyuki this was the first real weekend away and it was worth every shilling. Very easy to get to off the A2 only another 20-30mins along the track or longer if you stop to check out the wildlife! Breakfast, lunch & dinner are all 5 courses (though you don't... More

I will never forget my stay at the Samburu Intrepids Lodge. The term "tent" is true, but the room boasts a 5-star luxury bathroom, gorgeous bedding and the atmosphere is unlike anything I have ever seen. In some ways, I felt like I was on the set of a movie. This is what Disney World tries to emulate at its... More

We stayed here for two nights. We had a very nice tent. Everyone that works here is attentive and friendly. The food was good but seemed to take a long time to get thru dinner. The bar area was nice to relax and have some drinks with a nice view of the river. There are no locks on the tents... More

We much enjoyed our three night family stay in Samburu Intrepids, a well located camp overlooking a small river in the arid sector of the northern highlands. The facilities are excellent and include a good pool, a bar and a spacious restaurant open to the environment. The staff are very pleasant and child-friendly (but some should shower more often). A...

What a fantastic beginning to our safari via Gate 1 Travel / Vintage Africa in mid-July 2014. We hit the jackpot during our first afternoon/evening safari with a sighting of a leopard with its gazelle kill in the tree; we heard the bones popping as it ate its dinner! Fantastic wildlife including lions, elephants, cheetahs, baboons, zebras, etc. Monkeys by... More

Wonderful adventure...loved it there. I highly recommend this facility to every person who travels to Kenya. The staff is great and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The setting is remote but, the rooms are well kept and very comfortable. I loved the white sheets and mosquito netting, very b beautiful and welcoming.

Samburu was such a surprise for us! The density of the animals, and the variety of both animals and birds was fantastic. Samburu Intrepids is great for families, as they have activities for children both outdoor and indoor, and informative lectures in the evening. The pool was useful with children. Hussein was so friendly and reassuring: he walks guests to... More
