Review:   Recommended for: Couples, families

Pros: With just a couple of villas on this enormous piece of private land, you won't feel crowded by any means. Communal dinners in the main lodge are a wonderful opportunity to recount your days' adventures (as each group of guests will be on their own adventure). Coffee on your deck overlooking the watering hole each morning is an amazing experience--you'll likely see a dozen species at the watering hole at once. Don't pass up the opportunity to spend a night in the Star Beds, which are maybe a 1/2 hour drive from the main lodge. You'll have an incredible dinner cooked over an open fire, and then sleep in a comfy bed on a raised, open-air platform while Samburu warriors stand guard a few dozen yards away with their spears...listening to the animals call to each other. Make sure you visit the Samburu village that the lodge helps support--that will be an experience of a lifetime, for sure.

Cons: None.
