Having read all the positive reviews of Intrepids, we choose Intrepids over other excellent lodges in Samburu. We had a nice stay but expected more. Price was good but a couple of things made us think it was a bit average. First of all, the lodge is located in Samburu at the river bank but at the other side there... More

An excellent lodge. Located within the reserve, arriving was an exciting game drive in itself. The tents were luxurious, spacious and clean. The food was great and we found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating.

My husband and I were part of a travel group that stayed here. We thought the tents were great! We enjoyed that experience. The breakfast and lunch were buffet. The evening meal was from the menu.

This tented camp is vey good located in Samburu park itself. This makes game drives easy and interesting. The capacity of the camp is relatively large more than 20 tents/rooms. That is reflected in the capacity of the dining and recreation area. Meals are either buffet or a la cart depending on the number of guests. The food is average... More

The satff are amazingly friendly and efficient. We used our own car, but the guide we got from the management of the camp - James Ntopai - accompanied us... More

Samburu Intrepids is my favorite place in the world! Like a fantastic childhood dream come true. The people are amazing, as are all the animals.

The tent camp is a special treat. This place is right in the thick of things with monkeys, baboons bats and even elephants right in the camp. The sounds at night, while the generators are off, are spectacular. During our last night there, the elephants slept right outside of our tent....their dung proved that. It is like being out in...
