Samburu National Reserve shares the borders with the Buffalo Spring National Reserve and the Shaba National Reserve. Of all the parks in Kenya they are the ones with the smallest number of sightings, at least in our trip. However, this lodge is the place to stay if you go there. Sarova is a chain offering high-end accommodations in Kenya, and this is the best of their three lodges we stayed.
It is located in the Shaba reserve, along the Uaso Nyiro river, and offers 85 chalets with views on the river and their beautiful lush garden. The garden surrounds the rooms, and big windows on both sides of the rooms offer plenty of views. You can see monkeys around and crocodiles in the river.
The lodge has a big swimming pool to relax after a game viewing, and the restaurant is located in an open space on the first floor of their central building, with a lot of trees around and the river flowing nearby.
