Samburu Game Lodge
Samburu Lodge is set in a rugged landscape with a backdrop of jagged mountains and its own indigenous animals unique to the region. The landscape, wildlife and vegetation is very different to the lush rolling grasslands of other parks. Samburu is a place for leopard, lion, elephant and crocodile. It is the place of the semi-nomadic Samburu people. A place of thornbush open plains and vast horizons. It gives you a taste of the romance of the desert. Beautifully situated on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro river everything at Samburu is geared to making the most of the lodges spectacular setting.
There is a wide choice of accommodation spread up and down the banks the river in cottages, bandas and single or twin rooms. All rooms are complete with a four poster mosquito net.
In the evenings a number of crocodiles climb up the river bank to the edge of the crocodile bar and feast on food left out for them. On a good night guests may also see the secretive, solitary and nocturnal leopard silently arrive to the fresh meat bait put out on a tree across the river.
In the afternoon take a game drive to see the Beisa oryx, Grevys zebra, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and blue legged ostrich – animals unique to this region.
