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! We travelled as a family of five and booked the family... More

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

Lovely lodge, situated so conveniently that we enjoyed a game drive even before we got there. Lovely people, food is PERFECT!! Highly recommended. The experience was utterly amazing. We saw lions, elephants, zebras, antelopes, oryx, giraffes, birds, water bucks, and finally when leaving we saw a leopard that had just hunted....oh, wow...our trip was worth it :D

Dear Guest, Thank you for this stunning review. It is very evident that you had a thoroughly good time at Samburu Intrepids Camp.

The lodge itself is situated deep in the samburu game reserve so before you even get to the lodge you will see a lot of wildlife which was good. The tents when we got there were luxurious as described in the title of the lodge. Food was average, the only thing that let the place down a little really. I... More

Samburu Intrepids-what a fantastic place with fantastic people. we (husband, child age 9 and myself) had a fantastic time at Samburu Intrepids. Sebastian, our guide was knowledgable and made our early starts fun. We always had an objective and he never failed to deliver although I thought the Somali ostrich might beat him.

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.

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.

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
