The tents are nicely accommodating, comfortable, spacious. Ask for a river-view tent, as not all are right on the river. The food was exceptional. We've been to number of lodges, and this one stands out with great food. The pool was refreshing during the heat...More

We had a wonderful tent, comfortable, great food, service superb, our Kenya guide Moses was great. He found many animals. The camp sits overlooking a river. All tents have a great view! We saw a lioness with three cubs, so special! Elephants, monkeys. Many more.

About
Description
Ashnil Samburu Camp sits in Buffalo Springs Game Reserve which takes its name from an oasis of crystal clear water at the Western end of the reserve. It is separated from samburu National Reserve by Ewaso Nyiro More River and is less hilly and dense yet equallly very attractive. After a gruelling game drive you can take a dip in our pool which is a wonderful viewing deck of the Ewaso Nyiro River and laze around in the calm. Less
