WHERE TO STAY IN BUFFALO SPRINGS RESERVE

Our innovative AfricanMecca Safaris Tier System simplifies your accommodation choice by providing you with an accurate and up-to-date rating. Our team personnel visit accommodations and base our evaluation on a guest perspective. Our criterion includes every aspect that is important to you, such as location, exclusivity, food, service, guides, room quality and much more. We then assign a rating of Tier 1 for premium, Tier 2 for mid-range deluxe and Tier 3 for value. To give our guests the best and most pleasant safari in Buffalo Springs National Reserve, we recommend two accommodations – Ashnil Samburu Camp and Samburu Simba Lodge. Both of these accommodations not only give you access to Buffalo Springs National Reserve, but also the sister reserve – Samburu National Reserve. The reserves are separated only by the Ewaso Nyiro River, and wildlife frequently roam between them by crossing the river at low water points, so fauna experiences are similar in both reserves. Additionally, the reserves share the ecosystem, so birdlife, flora, terrain and other aspects are the same. Staying at Buffalo Springs, though, does afford you the advantage of being away from the more crowded accommodations in Samburu National Reserve.

At Tier 2, we recommend Ashnil Samburu Camp, a deluxe accommodation that offers you a good balance between quality and price. The camp is situated on the banks of the river in a natural setting that immerses you in beauty of the Kenyan wilderness. Thirty guest tents feature hexagon designs with ample windows, giving you almost 360-views from every part of your tent. The en-suite bathroom and dressing area are perfect for freshening up after your outdoor Kenyan safari activities, and the sitting area and private verandah invite you to relax and exchange stories with friends and family amidst resident wildlife (read more on when is the best time to go to Buffalo Springs). Guest tents are sited to maximize views of the river or offer guests easy access to common areas. For the budget-conscious traveler in Buffalo Springs National Reserve, we recommend Samburu Simba Lodge. At the AfricanMecca Tier 3 level, you stay in a modest accommodation that may have more guests when compared to a Tier 2 or 1. You still have access to the same safari activities within the reserves. Samburu Simba is situated in a beautiful forest near the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River. Seventy guest rooms are divided amongst seven villas, and each villa has six guest rooms on the lower level with another four rooms on the upper floor. Families may prefer the interconnected rooms to ensure a bonded vacation in the Kenyan wilderness. The lodge is designed to embrace the natural elements outdoors as reflected in brick and stone. A ceiling fan, sitting area and writing desk offer ample space, and outside you have a private verandah for enjoying nature, reading and napping.
