Opened in 1963, Samburu Game Lodge has a long legacy of safari adventures and proves to be a popular choice with travellers who want to experience the real heart of Africa. Set in a rugged landscape surrounded by jagged mountains, Samburu Game Lodge is a place where leopard, lion, elephant and crocodile thrive. It is also home to the semi-nomadic Samburu tribe, thorn-bushed plains and the romance of Kenya safari magic.
All the cottages, rooms and suites at Samburu Game Lodge are stylishly decorated and feature en-suite bathrooms (some with baths and some with showers) as well as picturesque balconies with great river views.
Several family rooms and units are on offer and there is also a room that accommodates physically challenged persons at Samburu Game Lodge.
Everything at Samburu Game Lodge is geared to offer exceptional service. The open-sided dining room faces the river and guests are treated to the sights and sounds of animals visiting the water while enjoying delicious meals. And it is not uncommon to spot crocodiles while sipping sundowners in the aptly named Crocodile Bar, where guests can kick back and relax while appreciating the magical sunsets.
At night, wildlife videos are shown under the stars, while the sparkling pool provides a welcome respite during the heat of the day, or after a long day of game viewing. Another unique treat at Samburu Game Lodge is the occasional appearance of secretive, solitary and nocturnal leopards; and the Samburu Dancers provide daytime entertainment in the early afternoons in the lodge arena. Additional facilities include laundry and dry-cleaning services, a gift shop and telephone and fax services.
With mountains shimmering on the horizon, a breathtaking river winding its way next to the lodge and abundant wildlife, Samburu Game Lodge offers a singular African safari experience.
