Having visited Samburu (including Shaba and Buffalo Springs) many times over the past 30+ years and stayed at most of the lodges and camps this would have to be the best value tented camp in the region. Small, good service, friendly staff, plentiful food and an idyllic location on the banks of the Ewaso Ng'iro Njiru River. The camp is... More

This was our first stop in Kenya and we were told by the guides that we saw more abundance and variety of wildlife on our drive there from the airstrip than many people see during a week long stay. We know it was just lucky timing, but on that first ride to camp we saw dozens of elephant, 6 giraffe,... More

Everything about this place is amazing: The location right on the river in the midst of the romantic and dry Samburu landscape, the wonderful staff, the spacious and beautifully decorated rooms, the verandas with private plunge pools. Being a Nairobi resident, I have travelled extensively in Kenya, and this is the one place I always want to go back to!... More

We stayed here for 7 nights as part of a photographic safari organised for us. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The public area has Wi Fi and comfortable seating areas. Dinner (three courses) is served here at night. Breakfast and lunch are served down by the river. Breakfast is an enormous buffet and lunch... More

Couldn't recommend this camp highly enough. The tents were extremely luxurious and the food was of a very high standard. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, very sad when we had to leave. I had an Elephant bedroom massage in the treatment tent and it was one of the best massages I have had.

First place we stayed on our trip to Kenya, and my favourite. If you are looking for an earthy experience of safari, in a stunning location with the VERY best care being taken of you, this is the place to go. Samburu is utterly charming and the camps location by the river is idyllic. The staff have great presence and... More

Our tent was beautiful two kingsize beds, a very smart bathroom including a lovely warm shower with decent pressure. After a delicious lunch and quick shower to freshen up we set of on our first safari drive. Our driver James... More
