We stayed at Ashnil Samburu Camp for 2 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The sleeping huts were very comfortable and included a balcony that looked over the river. The food was delicious, probably the best we had while on safari in East Africa....More

About
Description
Ashnil Samburu Camp sits in Buffalo Springs Game Reserve which takes its name from an oasis of crystal clear water at the Western end of the reserve. It is separated from samburu National Reserve by Ewaso Nyiro More River and is less hilly and dense yet equallly very attractive. After a gruelling game drive you can take a dip in our pool which is a wonderful viewing deck of the Ewaso Nyiro River and laze around in the calm. Less
