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...

We stayed for three nights last week and had a wonderful time. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, rooms very clean/comfortable, food abundant and tasty, location is gorgeous and restful. We slept great (some of us did use earplugs to quiet the many animal sounds at night). We ate very well (ordered entirely from the set menu of food... More

We spent 3 nights at Samburu Intrepids and were very impressed with the facilities and the service. The highlight of our stay, however, were the meals. We have stayed at numerous lodges in Africa and have never had the quality of meals that we had at Samburu Intrepids. Kudos to the chef for making our stay a 5-star culinary experience.

Honestly, we were really impressed about the lodge. The tent's are at the "high end" level. Beds are good, we had a small problem with the shower but the managment picked it up immediately. Super service from them troughout the days! Food is good. 5 course every evening. Super breakfast and lunch. Besides all these things we were really impressed... More

Service: We arrived by plane on an all inclusive package, we were picked up at the airfield by our assigned driver. Even from the air we spotted animals. The way to the camp was through the park, so we came across wild life and even though we were not officially on a game drive, the driver stopped for a few... More

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
