Wake up on a four-poster bed. View the Uaso Nyiro River from your window, where splashing elephants and crocodiles can be spied. Samburu Intrepids Camp turns camping into a treat. And thanks to Heritage Hotels Ltd, you could win four nights here...
Situated 345km north of Nairobi, it takes a 50-minute flight followed by a 20-minute drive through the reserve to reach the camp. The remote location means you’ll hardly have to step foot outside your room to spy wildlife, although venturing further is well-worth it.
A game drive across the park’s dry landscape offers up eyefuls of Samburu’s ‘special five’, including the rare reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk antelope and Beisa oryx. If you’re lucky, you’ll glimpse lion and leopard too, images that will likely stay imprinted on your mind’s eye for a lifetime.
Next, visit the Rhino Sanctuary, a 5.4 sq km haven for rhino where an expert guide will walk you within metres of these rare creatures. Meet more gentle giants at the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, which houses orphaned calves until they are ready to be released back into the wild. The viewing platform offers fine views of them playing.
Samburu Intrepids Camp not only offers luxury, but sustainability, too. Samburu Intrepids is very eco-friendly, with solar-powered hot water and biodegradable waste used for compost in the gardens. The camp also supports the local community, which makes up 30% of its workforce. Staying here helps to fund the local primary school, a bee-keeping training project and even a medical service for the villagers. This means you can eat in the shade overlooking the river, enjoy wildlife presentations from naturalists and cool off in the pool, all in the knowledge that you’re giving something back. Samburu Intrepids Camp is truly a win-win situation, and hopefully a win for you, too!
Heritage Hotels Ltd is offering one winner the chance to win four nights full-board at Samburu Intrepids Camp in a Luxury Double or Luxury Twin Tent, along with two daily game drives, free entry to Samburu National Reserve, the Rhino Sanctuary and Reteti Elephant Sanctuary.
