What can a person say, after that long trip from the US and the hustle and bustle of Nairobi what a change to stay five night at the Samburu Intrepids. Beautiful luxury tents, fabulous food and a perfect start to our Safari.

The whole Intrepid experience was very good, the staff really stand out with their customer service and we could not fault anyone. In particular we did four safari drives over two days with our guide and driver Dom, who went the extra mile to make our safari great by finding elephants in the river at play and finding leopards and...

The ups are that the food was pretty good with attentive waiters although we had to wait quite a while for ordered drinks even though the bar is within sight. The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The downs were the revolting state of the verandah: permanently covered in monkey poo and urine and while we were out it was... More

The first impressions count and for us it was the generous welcome from the staff. Everyone was happy to help and guide us and that really counts. This is tented accommodation but the quality of that is excellent, with an ensuite that had plenty of hot water The dining expereince was well above average with our waiter Kenneth, attentive and...

This was the 2nd stop on our tour. Fantastic tented room with all the sounds of the local animals. A perfect base for visiting the game reserve where we saw leopards,giraffes,zebras and cheetahs to name just a few of the fantastic animals. Staff could not be more friendly or helpful. Beautifully presented high quality food with a good selection.From our... More

Having visited this lodge on multiple occasions both as a private patron and with clients I must admit that my latest experience with clients left me thinking that this will certainly be the last time. While the lodge itself is still in fairly good and the tents and other facilities very comfortable, there were two major detractors: Firstly, this time... More

Went to Samburu Intrepids for a 2 night stay on a Monday and Tuesday. Because it is low season there were not many guests and since it is also dry season the river was running dry in most places. The luxury tents are very nice. very nice flush toilet, nice sink area and a wonderful European style rain shower. The... More

We stayed at Samburu Intrepids for three nights while on a safari of Kenya and Tanzania, and it was wonderful! I was a bit hesitant about "camping" as I am not much of a camper, but this is a luxury camp with an emphasis on luxury! The "tents" were clean and comfortable, with a view of the river from the...
