Found in the North of Kenya lies Samburu Game Lodge, a small typically African accommodation with great game viewing and birding. The lodge is set within 10 acres of land in the beautiful Samburu National Reserve near the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River. The reserve is home to a number of rarer species, lesser found in other parts of Kenya, including Beisa Oryx and the Blue Shanked Somali ostrich.
There are a total of 61 rooms on offer at Samburu, split between suites, rooms and cottages. Some of the rooms at the property are tailored for families; useful for any small groups, and one for those with a disability. All accommodation options feature balconies overlooking the Uaso Nyiro River and en-suite bathrooms.
The main guest area features quite a large restaurant, which not only serves up tasty cuisine but features the curiosity of a traditional flute player to serenade meals. There are two bars on offer, one of which is very near the river bank and affords fantastic casual game viewing of elephant and crocodile. There is also a swimming pool to stay cool from the African sun. To further the sense of authentic Africa, traditional dances are performed most days for guests to enjoy.
