Samburu Intrepids is a lush oasis on the banks of the great Uaso Nyiro River in Samburu Game Reserve. 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
Here you are guaranteed close encounters with Samburu’s animals, including herds of elephants, buffaloes and zebras, which come daily to drink – together with the rarer ‘northern species’ of reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx, long-necked gerenuk antelope and Somali ostrich.
