This was our first safari - a long held ambition finally realised. We could not fault anything at Samburu Intrepids. The tent was luxurious and clean, the setting was beautiful, monkeys and other occasional camp vistors were charming, and the food was superb. Sorry again to the staff that we could not finish all our meals - no reflection on the quality - more to do with the quantities!.
All the staff were warm,welcoming and friendly, and quick to laugh and joke with us. It's difficult to name names as everyone was so nice, but we have to say thanks to Jelly for being a great guide - we saw so many wonderful animals and with Jelly's skill we never felt we were intruding or hassling the animals, despite being able to see so much at close range. Josphat our waiter - watch out for his occasional teasing - he kept catching us out! Francis the naturalist is a great character and it was so good to know that the people like him and Jelly who see these incredible sights every day still get as much of a thrill as we first-timers do. We used to have a "never go back" rule for holidays, however much we enjoy them, as there are so many other places to visit, but we are confident that we will be making a return trip here as soon as we can.
