We stayed at the Ashnil Samburu Tented Camp for two nights in mid. January 2013, the first two nights of our safari. The bottom line is the resort was excellent. The first lunch and dinner were sit-down service because there were only a few quests. The wait staff was efficient and friendly and seemed genuinely interested in our trip. More guests arrived on the second day, so the remaining meals were served buffet style. There were many choices available and the quality of the food was excellent.
We had room (tent) 2 which had a king-size bed and was very comfortable. Our room was large and very clean and came with a back porch that included chairs and a table. The resort does turn off the electricity for several hours at night and possibly mid-afternoon.
A river runs behind the tents and main facilities and one can see elephants either crossing the river or bathing in it. What a fantastic sight! There were also a lot of monkeys roaming the grounds which the tourists found amusing, but staff chased them away from the dining area.
The resort is actually in Buffalo Springs and the wildlife viewing was phenomenal. We also drove across the river to the Samburu section which also had an abundance of animals.
We loved this place and highly recommend it.
