Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Intrepids Camp in Samburu. I am glad you enjoyed what you describe as two amazing nights. Samburu GameReserve is not a large park but it is teaming with all kinds of wildlife, beautiful bird life and excellent fauna. A two day package I would say is quite sufficient...

What a place! Five star resort hotel with amazing game drives. Lots of elephants. Followed lions ×3 for a couple of hours. Many different horned beasties. Great food. Beautiful river vistas. Totally different from southern Kenya; do not miss this area!

The staff and accommodations were excellent. Our guide, Jelly, was knowledgeable and friendly. We saw all 5 of the "Special 5". The tent cabins are very comfortable and the food was great. I highly recommend Samburu Intrepids to families, couples, or if you're going solo.

We loved our whole trip to Kenya, but as far as safari lodges, this was our favorite. Staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Kids Adventure Camp for our 2 children (ages 9 and 10) was a great experience. The rooms were lovely -- called "tents," but so much more than a tent and very comfortable.
