I visited here for 3 nights at the end of May/beginning of June. I was met at the airstrip by Sebastian, who was to be my guide/driver for the next 3 days. I was the only passenger and the drive to the camp turned out to be one of the best game drives I have experienced. Within minutes of entering... More

We stayed at Samburu Intrepids on our recent visit to Kenya. The camp is lovely and suitable for any age visitors. We were impressed with the quality of the food and the service from the restaurant staff. The tents are well appointed with shampoo, conditioners and soaps provided. Room stewards place hot water bottles in your beds whilst you eat... More

Stayed here on 11/12 June as part of a flying safari, amazing!!! Sebastian, our guide knew everything and such a nice man. Worked very hard to find the animals we wanted to see and he cared about the environment, even to the extent that he spotted some safari ants crossing the track in front of us so he stopped until...

This is one of the best places I've ever visited in Kenya! The service was magnificent! The staff so very helpful, very friendly and always exceeded our expectations. The welcome was so warm it felt like home. The food was awesome! Always had Chef Otaro come around to check if we enjoyed our meals........ Then he made us a surprise... More

This is the most awesome place we have encountered, it was so special that i cried when it was time to leave! Set among the trees along side the river. The food was some of the best we have eaten.

The fact that we've returned for another visit to Samburu Intrepids may be a bit of a giveaway as to how we feel about it. The lodge has a rustic charm that is delightful & comfortable. Watching the river flow by as you drink your Tusker or eat your meal, is as therapeutic as any Spa. The tents are clean,... More

Our first tented camp experience proved to be delightful at the Intrepid in the Samburu Game Reserve. The tented room was large, well appointed, and the net around our king-sized bed was impressive! It was absolutely awesome falling asleep to the sound of the Ewaso Nyiro River rushing outside of our tent. Being greeted with coffee and cookies before leaving... More

We stayed at Intrepid camps at both Samburu and Masai Mara wild game preserves in Kenya. In my opinion, staying in a tented camp is by far the best way to experience Africa. At the camp, the food was delicious, the beds were comfortable and the shower was great. All the comfort of home were available but being in a... More

These are heavy canvas tents hung inside a wooden lodge type frame, ensuite and very comfortable, couldn't fault them for cleanliness and everything worked well although hot water took some time to come through as the tents are quite well spaced out so understandable. The main lodge is set by the river midway into the park, generally a good setting... More

My wife and I had a wonderful 3-night stay at the Samburu Intrepids. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The safaris were special and we saw almost every major animal. The nightly naturalist presentions were most informative. The accommodations were very comfortable and we never saw a mesquito. The food was great.
