GUIDE ON SAMBURU GAME LODGE IN NORTHERN KENYA
Samburu Game Lodge is a modest 61-room value accommodation for your economical tour of Samburu National Reserve. The lodge is located within ten acres of forest along the Ewaso Nyiro River, so you have fine views of fish-eating birds skimming the surface and elephants bathing, all from the seclusion of your distinct patio or balcony. Each room features en-suite bathroom, some of which have a bathtub, as well as personal safe, writing desk, chairs, wall fan and more. In the evenings, staff places mosquito netting around your bed as part of the turn-down lodge service. Several family rooms are available, as well as themed rooms that are known to treat children to an especially delightful holiday in East Africa. Samburu Lodge also has one room that is designed to fit the needs of an AfricanMecca guest with limited mobility. From your room, you may observe many animals at the river that are also spotted by your guide during your photographic safari in magical Kenya, such as baboons, giraffes, monkeys, elephants, buffalos and other grazers and foragers, as well as ferocious crocodiles and other predators. For your security, staff escorts you at night between common areas and your room. Due to the remote location of Samburu Game Lodge, electricity is available at certain times, and the schedule is relatively convenient for most guests.
As members of the local Samburu communities, the guides at the lodge have an excellent knowledge of the terrain, wildlife, history and traditions of Samburu Reserve, and these qualities enhance your exploratory travel in Africa. A morning game drive is an incredible way to start your day. The herbivores are wandering to the river and grazing quietly around it. Predators, such as cheetahs, lions, leopards, wild dogs and others, are lounging, napping and playing while ever-watchful for their next meal. Samburu National Reserve is also an excellent destination for your birdwatching vacation in this expanse of northern Kenya, and AfricanMecca recommends that you join the lodge naturalist for a birding walk or go a birding game drive. More than 350 feathered species have been recorded in the reserve, and your guide gladly helps you expand your personal birding log by locating and identifying as many species as they can find! Return to the lodge for an adequate breakfast before browsing the gift shop, swimming in the pool or taking a short siesta. After a buffet lunch, you have some time to relax with a cocktail in one of the two bars, watch the afternoon feeding of the crocodiles, nap, read or enjoy any other preferred pastimes. Join up again with your guide for an afternoon game trip to locate Somali ostriches, Beisa oryx, Grevy’s zebras and many, many more of the animals in the reserve before returning to the Samburu Lodge for sundowners and a satisfying dinner. During some evenings, the lodge hosts traditional dancers from the Samburu community, giving you greater insight into the culture of this indigenous tribe.
