We stayed in Jan with my husband and two young kids. We absolutely loved Intrepids, we were upgraded to a family tent free of charge without even requesting for it. The tents are just luxurious, 5 star accommodation in the middle of a gorgeous national park teeming with wild life. And the food is amazing, I would definitely recommend this... More

Spent two nights at Samburu Intrepids in June 2014 and was very pleased with the experience.We were picked up from Oryx airstrip at mid-day by Jelly and brought on a short game drive via the river. We stopped by the river for Jelly to talk to another driver when he spotted a leopard 25 metres away sitting by a bush... More

We spent Christmas 2014 at Samburu Intrepids -- and it was an incredible Christmas. The staff and lodge went out of their way to make sure that we had the best experience. From the airport pick-up to our meals, game drives, nightly lectures on Samburu customs...it was just an amazing experience. If you want to see elephants interacting in their... More

We were at Samburu Intrepids in December. Although we had been to Samburu before - this was our first stay at this lodge - and we will definitely return.

We just returned from two nights, two and a half days in Samburu and absolutely fell in love with the area. We live in Kenya and travel pretty extensively and thought that the game viewing, terrain and size of Samburu were just wonderful.

My entire family was thrilled by our experience here. The tents were wonderful. The food was delicious. The service and staff as attentive and top-notch. And we saw more animals than we had expected during our game drives. Kudos to our excellent guide, Jelly!

We stayed here for a couple of nights R & R. Wonderful place to relax, good food, lovely tent and friendly and kind people. If I was being REALLY critical then I would say that I found the restaurant area rather gloomy due to rather too much dark wood. But that is a small issue overall. Would highly recommend for...

This is undoubtedly a lovely property. On arrival from a hot drive the cool environs and friendly staff are incredibly welcoming. The main area is all open and a little bland until one realizes that anything not over 2kg will be nicked by the local monkeys so quickly understood!

Located deep into the heart of the Samburu Reserve, simply getting there from Archers Post is a game drive in its very own. The Intrepids family is great to be part of. They make you feel right at home. All tents face the Ewaso Nyiro, and nothing is better than to fall asleep to the sounds of the flowing river.... More
