Secluded and private, Larsens Camp is situated on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in the beautiful Samburu National Park. Peacefully located and boasting an atmosphere of authentic opulence, Larsens Camp is the ideal getaway for the discerning traveller looking for a genuine African safari experience. The camp itself is named after Erik Ole Larsen – a legendary Dane who is credited with creating the true luxurious safari under canvas experience – and its safari-chic style that lies amidst Kenya’s untamed, unspoiled wilderness is thought by many to be one of the country’s most memorable safari destinations.
Larsens Camp is made up of 20 designer tents, each one privately situated and well appointed. Each of the tents has its own private balcony with sensational views and a spacious en suite bathroom with hot and cold running water and flush toilets, as well as a range of high-end toiletries.
The tents have either a king size bed or twin beds with feather light sheets and are decorated with authentic safari style furniture that complements the surroundings and provides you with the perfect setting to relax after an eventful day game viewing. In order to preserve the environment in which it is situated, and to conserve energy, the camp’s electricity is all switched off when the guests aren’t in camp.
At Larsens Camp guests have the opportunity to dine by the river. Each meal is a sumptuous feast and a delightful four-course meal is served for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
At the Samburu National Reserve you have the opportunity to view Africa’s Big Five, as well as a variety of rare animals, such as the Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe and Grevey’s zebra.
Birding in the area is also excellent with many rare and exciting sightings on record. Game drives will take you out in the early morning or afternoon in an authentic Land Cruiser, which is specially designed for game viewing with its open roof and large windows.
Accompanied by an expert driver, journey through the reserve, discovering the intoxicating beauty and fascinating habitats of this unique part of Africa.
