Samburu Intrepids Lodge provides guests with a truly luxurious camping experience in one of the continent’s most beautiful wilderness areas. Situated on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in the arid Samburu National Reserve, Samburu Intrepids is built on stilts and looks out over the life giving river where herds of buffalo and elephant as well as a colourful array of other animal and bird life gather to drink. Dry, rugged and diverse, Samburu’s landscape is always stunning, from riverbeds to arid plains and the iconic Lolokowe Mountain and hills spreading out in every direction.
Samburu Intrepids is made up of 27 luxurious tents overlooking the river, each positioned to ensure the maximum amount of privacy and peace. They have large, 4 poster beds and elegant safari-style furniture.
Each tent also has its own modern en suite bathroom with showers, flushing toilets and private verandas. Guest areas include an open dining area that overlooks the river. You can relax in the bar area or cool off in the swimming pool after an exciting day viewing game.
Experience this fascinating area during early morning game drives, or walking safaris accompanied by an expert guide. The acclaimed Adventurer’s Club is an exciting way to include the children and they will learn all about safari under the expert guidance of Kenya’s famous guide Tom Lesarge.
Camel rides and raft trips down the river can also be organised. Guests can also enjoy bush breakfasts and dinners under the stars, romantic sundowners overlooking the plains, bird walks with an experienced ornithologist and cultural visits to local villages.
The area is home to an exciting array of diverse wildlife and breath taking scenery. From the Usao Nyiro River, which courses its way through the craggy terrain, to the dry arid areas where herds of elephant and big cats can be seen roaming the plains. Giraffe, zebra, Beisa orya, ostrich and a variety of antelope can be seen.
The camp is absolutely secure, with an electric fence that is designed to ward off wild animals. There is also 24 hour security on site.
