On this occasion we made the complete article after the trip, so we went directly to our usual “GUIDED VISIT” of the accommodation With all the details and impressions.
Possibly the decision of our place to sleep in Samburu was the one that gave us less headaches. The Location at the foot of the Ewaso River in a privileged place, and the comments read on the internet, decided for us.
The first thing we find is the reception and a set of low houses that are part of a small shop, a large living room, the dining room and a kind of terrace from which to observe the river (and the crocodiles, which rest almost next to the accommodation unable to access the slope and some fences)
The reservation, like the rest of those made in the part of Kenya, we made with Safi Safaris that gets better local prices than those offered on the internet, although they can be made directly from your own website for about between € 60-75 / person and night
The complex is distributed in parallel to the aforementioned river occupying about 10 acres and is maintained with a 240 V electricity generator, also having an internet service (slow), laundry, doctor, conference room, etc ...
The rooms, 61 distributed between suites and standard, are distributed among the total of built cabins. The suites, where we stayed, occupy 1 cabin every 2 rooms.
The interior of the same is perfectly maintained, clean and without mosquitoes (when we are next to a river with fast waters and without stagnations) at this time of the year. Even so it has a mosquito net, an important breadth and all kinds of details and decoration.
He bath, like the rooms, it is large. It has gels, shampoos, hair dryer and hot water at all times. At no time did we see any kind of insects or rare "bugs" inside it to find ourselves in the middle of nature.
The rest of the complex is divided between the restaurant where dinner and breakfast are served, spacious and buffet style, the terrace where you can see crocodiles almost touching them mentioned above and a section for an appetizing pool to use at noon, between gamedrive and gamedrive, which will serve as a relax for "some"
Inside the complex we could also see a type of primate, the green monkey, which is barely disturbed (there are personnel of the complex pending to prevent travelers from approaching) but who can get to "steal" some "bread bun" at breakfast .
The we would recommendyes Yes, because it perfectly meets what we can ask for an accommodation in Samburu: location, integration with the environment and affordable. It is recommended by CHAVETAS.ES from here.
