We visited Samburu Intrepids for our 10th anniversary in December 2015. We loved everything about the camp: the warmth and friendliness of the staff, the luxury tent, the food, the wildlife, the constant sounds of the Ewaso Nyiro, the 24th December Samburu and Borana entertainment, the weather... The most special thing we experienced was seeing a leopard in the wild... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Intrepids Samburu but were a bit disappointed for the following reasons: - The tents are small for families - each tent has two single beds that just about fit inside. There is just about space for a smallish additional bed by the entrance. So not ideal for families of more than 3 unless your... More

The Tent: I think the word tent doesn't really describe the accommodation, its more a really luxury ensuite hotel room that just happens to have canvas walls. We were very happy and we had a lovely view of the river. The Staff: They were really charming and everyone from our room attendant to the managers were great. Our waiter Geoffrey... More

Samburu is generally a hot and dry place, basically harsh, but from that moment that you drive into the Intrapids Camp, all that is washed away by the warm welcoming hospitality of all the staff.

The property fulfills every dream we had of an African evening.....the sights and sounds of wildlife are everywhere. The tented rooms are very unique and genuinely create a sense of a wilderness camp. Staff are friendly and attentive, making a sincere effort to present their hotel, and their lovely country, in the best light.
