Friendly, attentive staff. Great food. Surrounded by nature with monkeys roaming everywhere, crocodile feeding and elephants by the river. Samburu is less touristy and gives a chance to view lots of wild animals, we saw the elusive leopard here. Team arranged a visit to a nearby Samburu village. Rooms were large and well equipped. Just watch out for the insects!

Lovely accommodations with an authentic feel of Africa and it's culture. The property has a real rustic feel with baboons, monkeys and wild animals as your neighbors. Staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. Although their are lodging accommodations you feel as though you're one with the land and nature. Internet, constant running water and power shouldn't be a priority if...

Samburu Lodge is in a lovely riverside location in the fantastic Samburu Game Reserve. The lodge itself would benefit from a refurbishment, but our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We stayed in one of the furthest room right by the river which we thought delightful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we felt very well looked...

Conveniently located inside the park, Samburu Game Lodge offers clean and spacious room, good and friendly service. Restaurant food is fresh, and nicely presented. We stayed for 2 nights and were able to seen plenty of wild life, just closeby the lodge.

We stayed two nights at this lodge and really enjoyed it. We stayed at 5 different places in Kenya, and we would love to return to this place one day. The vibe is welcoming and happy from everyone who works there. The bar area overlooking the river is our favorite place to rest and feel refreshed with a cup of...

This place is amazing, we stayed at several lodges on our safari, some of which were considerably more expensive than this one, but this was our favourite. Located right on the river, it is serene, peaceful and relaxing, we had a room with a patio which was no more than 10m away from the river, we could hear it flowing...

All these rates are based considering that we're in Kenya, so proportionally to the reality of the country ☺️ We stayed at the Lodge for two nights. These are our highlights and rates for them. Location, surroundings, landscape 10/10- the situation of the lodge is perfect, in the middle of Samburu reserve, just exiting the place you'll start spotting lots...

This was our first night of many on our African safari adventure. Everyone who worked there was accomodating and helpful. Our room was ready and clean. The food at the buffets was plentiful and had a wide variety for us all. Service was superb at the dining hall. We were amused at "Seventy" who walked around with his slingshot and...

At first appearance this place seemed good but once tried to check in its true colours showed through. On trying to check in (we was on time 14:00) we was told there would be a 3 hour wait for our rooms to which we was a bit miffed but though 'ow well we are here now so lets just go...
