Larsen’s Camp, located on the shores of the Uaso Nyiro River on the Samburu National Reserve, is not your typical dirty, grueling camp experience. With 20 well-appointed tents, each designed with the best available necessities and decorated with the most impressive of fittings, the camp stands to meet and surpass all expectations of a visit to the African reserves. Dining is charming and always a precious experience, where one may take a champagne breakfast outdoors at sunrise and await dinner on silver platters at sunset. There are plenty of activities offered. Some prefer spending their time in contemplation while others choose to take part in the up close experience of leopard and crocodile feeding.
Larsens Camp, situated on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in the ruggedly beautiful Samburu National Game Reserve, features safari-chic-style luxury in the midst of Kenya’s untamed wilderness. Unquestionably one of Kenya’s pre-eminent safari destinations, Larsens is named after Erik Ole Larsen, a legendary Dane credited with defining the luxury safari under canvas. Designed in contemporary safari style, luxury is blended with the stunning surroundings of the spectacular Samburu Game Reserve. 20 designer tents, 700 square-feet in size, are all furnished in a unique and custom-made safari style. Samburu’s unique wildlife literally spills into the Camp.
There are 20 spacious airy tents, all raised on wooden platforms, nestled between acacia trees and doum palms. The tents each have en suite bathrooms and all face the river; you can watch animals from your private verandah. Facing the Ewaso Nyiro River, two of the tents have disability facilities. All tents are furnished in contemporary safari style. Each tent has a veranda with two chairs. Showers contain Molten Brown products. The tent contains a double king size bed. Maximum of 2 people per tent. The tent contains a wardrobe and two easy chairs with a side table with a collection of books. No television.

There is the main tented dining area serving Continental breakfast & international cuisine for lunch and dinner. The dining tent is open from three sides and faces the river. A first class dinner is elegantly served by candlelight on tables set with silver and china. Meals can also be served on our tree deck and river deck. The resort’s dining options are an integral part of the Larsens experience and are designed to pleasantly surprise: from a champagne breakfast by the river to a five-course dinner served by the campfire. Special functions like champagne breakfast on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro after early morning game drive and Samburu Sunset - an early evening cocktail party on the banks of the river or on top on one of the small hills overlooking the river. Drinks and canapés are served as the sun sets painting the landscape pink.
The Camp Fire is a hotspot at the camp, where many tales are exchanged around the fire each evening. The Tree-house is ideal for sundowners. Game viewing drives are always a fascinating experience, whether In the early morning or late afternoon. Certain species are unique to Samburu and only found in this area, such as the Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and Grevy's zebra. Take part in leopard/ crocodile viewing and feeding in the evenings. Samburu Dancing takes place in the afternoons at Samburu Lodge arena, where a resident group of Samburu dancers performs traditional dances every evening around the campfire.
