Samburu National Reserve
About Larsens Camp
Your exclusive Larsens Tent is secluded and private, the perfect place to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the Ewaso Nyiro River during the Kenyan night. Located on the riverbank, the tents are named after local Samburu birds, and as you curl up in the safari chair on your private porch, you may even notice one of these birds.
Truly a place of authentic opulence, the spacious king-size bed, with its feather-light sheets, is complemented by authentic furniture, local decorations, and lavish amenities. As you watch the sun rise over the Kenyan safari from your tent, you will wonder why you have not been here before.
Larsens Camp offers you the perfect way to pass the lazy Samburu afternoons. Larsens’ pool, looking out onto the hot and dusty game park, is furnished with plush lounge chairs, a nearby Jacuzzi, and poolside service. You will feel the worries of the world melt away as you slip into the cool water or let a warm Jacuzzi relax your muscles. The hours will quickly fade away in your Larsens paradise, and it is easy to realize that life in this Kenyan resort cannot be surpassed.
At Larsens Camp, you will have the unique opportunity to dine by the river for each of your meals. No true paradise would be complete without its gastronomy, and a sumptuous feast will be spread before you for every meal at Larsens; gourmet four-course meals are served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Watch elephants cross the river and giraffes meander along the opposite bank while enjoying the chef’s many delicious creations. If you have a special request, Larsens will be happy to cater to your wishes, whether you are craving authentic Korean food or local Kenyan specialties. The birds will eat from your hands as you relax on the riverside, should you be generous enough to share a homemade roll with them. The evening’s candlelight dinners, serenaded by the gentle sounds of the Kenyan night, are the perfect way to end the day.
Larsens Camp’s game drives are an unforgettable part of your experience. Dreams come alive as you experience what cannot be captured in pictures, film, or music; the heartbeat of Kenya.
You will have to option to go on morning or afternoon game drives in an authentic Land Cruiser with an open roof, large windows, and your own expert driver. The drives journey through the game park, discovering distant corners of Samburu while you lean onto the warm wood of your Cruiser’s door and watch the park pass outside.
Climb up to the treehouse deck, furnished with a full bar, to bid farewell to the day while sipping your drink and enjoying special appetizers whipped up by Larsens’ ingenuous chef. From your treetop perch, you’ll be able to watch the sun set over the Samburu hills as the colours turn from yellows to reds to night’s royal blues.
