The Intrepids tented lodge has an immediate advantage: it is located in the most beautiful and stimulating national park in Kenya. The staff were incredibly attentive and caring, providing us with a magical couple of honeymoon nights. Beware of the occasional elephant visit during dinner! (We were lucky enough to share dinner with an elephant standing 10 meters away!). Apes tend to solve their discussions with peaceful fights in the middle of the night, which only makes the experience more real. The best stay of our honeymoon.

We really enjoied our stay at intrepids safari company. The staff is very friendly and they do everything for you to feel at ease and welcome. The food is also delicious and you have a great choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The tent is very clean and the interior is beautiful. Everyday someone will come in the afternoon and prepare the bed and switch the light on, so when you return from the game drive you'll have everything beautifully prepared. We will recommend this lodge to our family and friend. Thank you Intrepids staff, we really had a wonderful time.

Friendly, helpful and professional service from all staff. Manager could not do enough for us. Tents are all new and interiors have been redone with great taste and comfort in mind. All meals were delicious and beautifully presented. Being a hot part of the country, it was great to have a pool to cool off in and plenty of shaded areas to enjoy in the heat of the day. Samburu itself is stunning with animals specific to the area. Park roads in good condition. Overall a wonderful experience which I highly recommend to anyone who loves being in the wilds of Africa. We will definitely be returning!

No words can properly describe the value of this unique place in the middle of the Samburu National Reserve where wildlife trives, and you can find your peace of mind in the times of the global lockdown. A true gem indeed: super attentative staff, a Chef that telepathically follows all of your (hidden) needs, therapeutic bush silence (animal sounds and visits included), properly cooled rooms, an icy Tusker, and them colorful birds by the river altogether give you a feeling of tempi passati; of the Utopia one aspires for. Eden on Earth, if there is one.
