This place is simply magnificent! We stayed in a beautiful luxury tent along the banks of the river. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Elephants wonder through the camp at night and you can hear them chomping leaves from your bed if you are very lucky. The beds are really enormous and so the two beds were perfect for a couple and two kids sharing the other bed. The deck has a small plunge pool which is so refreshing and keeps children hugely entertained while doing game viewing from the comfort of your own tent. The food was delicious and staff/service good. We usually self drive in game reserves, but we did one game drive with their vehicle and guide. They were really very excellent and successfully tracked down a pack of wild dogs which was very special. Samburu itself is a great park - it is easy to navigate around on a self drive, even if there are no sign posts, you can't really get lost. There are some fantastic animals that you won't see easily in other parks such as the
Reticulated giraffe, Gerenuk and Grevy's zebra. I believe this camp is very expensive with foreign rates but for resident rates it is much more affordable. Be aware the wind blows a lot at certain times of the year and it can interfere with a pleasant sundowner! We traveled in August 2013.
