What a place! Five star resort hotel with amazing game drives. Lots of elephants. Followed lions ×3 for a couple of hours. Many different horned beasties. Great food. Beautiful river vistas. Totally different from southern Kenya; do not miss this area!

The staff and accommodations were excellent. Our guide, Jelly, was knowledgeable and friendly. We saw all 5 of the "Special 5". The tent cabins are very comfortable and the food was great. I highly recommend Samburu Intrepids to families, couples, or if you're going solo.

A wonderful location, superb accommodation and food with excellent and friendly staff. The game viewing was brilliant and we saw animals not previously seen on other safaris, such as a Gerenuk (Giraffe Gazelle)

We loved our whole trip to Kenya, but as far as safari lodges, this was our favorite. Staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Kids Adventure Camp for our 2 children (ages 9 and 10) was a great experience. The rooms were lovely -- called "tents," but so much more than a tent and very comfortable. Naughty little monkeys wanted to... More
