Samburu Intrepids Tented Camp

Samburu Intrepids is a lush African safari oasis on the banks of the great Uaso Nyiro River in Samburu Game Reserve, Kenya. The tented luxury camp is a delight to be in – deliciously cooled by the river breeze and the forest. The camp sits on raised decks overlooking the brown river where the elephants sometimes make an appearance or the crocodiles come out to lounge by the river's banks.

Dry, rugged and stunning, Samburu’s landscape is at once stark and sensual, with its iconic loaf shaped Ololokwe Mountain and hills spreading in every horizon. Its life lung is the Uaso Nyiro River coursing through its craggy terrain full of stone, thorn bush and the forked doum palms. In this arid zone where water is scarce and the land baked by the eternal sun, herds of elephants and the big cats roam the plains with the Samburu special - the Reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Beisa oryx, Somali ostrich and the long necked antelope, the gerenuk easily seen despite its harsh climes.

Tents at Samburu Intrepids

Samburu Intrepids Luxury Tented Camp set in the Kenyan semi arid north, offers 28 modern and newly refurbished tents with a private view over the wildlife-rich banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. Each tent sits on a raised deck overlooking the brown river where the elephants sometimes make an appearance or the crocodiles come out to lounge by the river’s banks.

The luxury and spacious tents feature either a queen size bed or two twin beds set under a palm-thatched roof with netted screens on either side to allow for the river breeze to keep them cool. Each tent offers stunning views of the land that is Samburu. The tent boasts the very latest in luxury camping; with soft beds; handsome mahogany closets and a writing desk; as well as an en-suite bathroom with a steaming hot shower; twin washbasins; a flush toilet; and sockets for shavers and battery charging.

Activities at Samburu Intrepids Tented Camp

Guests enjoy two game drives everyday in the reserve – the early morning from 6 am to 9 am; and the late afternoon from 3.30 pm returning to camp at sunset. Or you can indulge in a half-day game drive with breakfast on the plains and return to camp by mid-morning because after that it’s too hot even for the animals to come out of the shade. Samburu is simply stunning – a photographer’s delight with its surreal settings and different lights to photograph it in. Guests at Samburu Intrepids can enjoy game drives in Samburu game reserve and the adjoining Buffalo Springs game reserve where you will see the natural spring pool believed to have medicinal properties.

Other activities including walking safaris, star gazing, camel rides, cultural visits and, of course, relaxing by the pool.
