Larsen’s Camp Samburu in Kenya is an opportunity to experience a luxury African Safari Camp with a turn of the century atmosphere.

It opened twenty years ago and lies on the banks of the river Uaso Nyiro over three hundred kilometres north of Nairobi on the border of the old Northern Frontier Province.

Larsen’s is best described as very stylish and upmarket, very comfortable and old colonial. The situation overlooking the river is classical luxury African safari camp.

What you will find here at Larsen’s is a casual elegance along with great style, all very laid back, and incredibly comfortable. If you associate a degree of discomfort on an African Safari then Larsen’s will show you what can be achieved to turn your African Safari into a luxury African Safari.

In terms of your accommodation, there are twenty spacious tents all raised up on wooden platforms, facing the river, so you can watch the animals from your own private verandah. Each is well equipped with good bathrooms and lovely showers.

When it comes to Dining, then Larsen’s Camp more than justifies its’ huge reputation. Whether it be dining by candlelight with fine china and silver cutlery, receiving immaculate table service, or your breakfast and barbecues cooked before you and for you, the food is quite superb. The dining tent at Larsen’s opens on three sides, and of course also overlooks the river.

All is relatively tranquil, helped in part by the policy of there being no children under the age of seven.

Of course it doesn’t matter how beautiful your Luxury African safari camp is, what you want to see is plenty of wildlife, and Larsen’s will not disappoint.

You will have two game drives in your day, the first early morning 6-9am and the other 4-6.30pm approximately. You’ll be woken with tea or coffee and biscuits, and breakfast is served after the morning drive.

The day is very much your own, and the new swimming pool and spa with great views helps you to relax, and there is also a game viewing platform as well.

The great thing about the game drives are the fact hat you can be in your own vehicle and not jammed in a mini bus.

The great thing about the game drives are the fact that you will be in your own vehicle and not jammed in a mini bus. The safari starts when you are met at Samburu airstrip, and you will see Grevy’s Zebra, giraffe, leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo, impala, even cheetah.

All this without mentioning the river which is like a magnet for wildlife, and with luck you will see elephants rolling around in the shallow water, as well as a huge number of animals regularly coming to drink.

Larsen’s Camp is special, Samburu is special, and is a ‘must visit’ stopover probably for three nights on any luxury Afican safari.
