We spent 2 nights at the Samburu Simba lodge and the setting is beautiful as you have views overlooking the river and the hills. The staff were helpful and friendly although it seemed like they were overwhelmed by the numbers since it was Christmas and it was fully booked. The rooms are clean and very well maintained. They have 2...

We have just spent two very relaxing days in Buffalo Springs Game Reserve, staying at the Samburu Simba Lodge. The lodge is placed in a wonderful situation with views overlooking the river and the expanse of hills beyond to the North. The staff were extremely friendly and most accommodating. The food was generally ok, plenty of it but unimaginative. The...

As soon as we drove into the reserve we started seeing the unique species of Kenya's north, such as the Grevy's zebra and the Rothschild giraffe. I was impressed by the density of wildlife and the unique dry land terrain. Although in the...

Stayed for 2 nights with my husband and 2 young children, found it to be very pleasant. The rooms are spacious enough for us all to get in, with an excellent large balcony and loungers. The bathroom is large and modern, and we had an excellent room boy, Lawrence who made sure we more than catered for. Our waiter was...

Great place to be on a holiday. Large air conditioned rooms, good housekeeping. No internet or TV in the rooms which to me was a plus. Children well taken care of. Improvement on the menu in needed, was there for 5 days over Christmas and the menu was more less the same thing. Restaurant service was a bit slow and...

My daughter and I stayed at Samburu Simba Lodge for two nights. Our room and bathroom were both a good size and clean. The view was amazing. But the thing that made this hotel so special were the staff. The electricity was turned off from 11pm until 5am on our first night, (of which we were informed about when we...
