Samburu Game Lodge hero

Samburu Game Lodge

Discover Samburu Game Lodge

Samburu Game Lodge is set within 10 acres of land in the beautiful Samburu National Reserve, in northern Kenya, near the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River. The reserve is home to rarer species including the Beisa Oryx, the genenuk and the Somali ostrich. It is the oldest lodge on the reserve and enjoys a scenic riverside location amongst gardens and old cedar trees.

There are 4 room types to suit all travelers including standard and river rooms, junior suites, and cottages. You can watch birds and crocodiles in the river while sipping a drink from your own balcony or from aptly named the Crocodile Bar. There’s another bar called the Vulture Bar which is perched among the trees and a Pool Bar where the staff will ply you with cool drinks and snacks while you languidly relax by the pool. The restaurant too offers beautiful views and fantastic food. The lodge is an ideal base for exploring Samburu National Reserve, offering game drives, bird walks and sundowners.

"It’s rather odd but the lodge feed the large crocodiles at sunset under the bar deck where you can view them snapping up what’s offered."
