5 of us stayed for 3 nights. The tents are v well equipped and are next to river, which was unfortunately dry after the prolonged dry period the region has experienced. Due to the ever present vervet monkeys it was v important to keep the tents closed at all times. The main restaurant and bar tent was large and well...

We stayed here just before the New Year for a single night (a shame really). If coming to Larsens, you really need to take the time and stay at the least, a couple of nights. The location for the camp is brilliant. By the river, and of course which ever tent you get, you'll have a great view of it....

After a disastrous one night at a so-called eco-lodge, my wife and I contacted Larsen's Camp and managed to get a booking over the busy New Year's weekend. What a relief to check-in to a well-managed establishment and to check-out of our worries! The staff are highly attentive and efficient. The tents are very comfortable and the location along the...

Staying at Larsen's Camp is truly a memorable event! We stayed for two nights while on game drives through Samburu Reserve. The tents are great and so is the early morning coffee they provide before each drive. Larsen's Camp does a wonderful job of providing you with a bit of the culture and nature during the visit. You get to...

Absolutely georgeous spot on the riverbank. Spacious tents, though a bit on the faded side but tastefully decorated. Restaurant lacks a bit of charm and cuisine could be more original. Wine list disappointing and overpriced considering the market targeted.

Twenty-seven people checked out on the day we arrived, leaving us and one other family as the sole occupants of the 20 tents. On our second night, we were alone. That means that the entire and quite wonderful staff was dedicated to our needs alone, which is to say we were treated like royalty. The food was wonderful. The conversation...

The comfy and spacious tents ( make sure you zip the tent to keep out those adorable Vervet monkeys🐒) border the Uaso River where we saw large groups of elephants come to drink and cross. The staff adds to the experience with their friendliness and efficiency. Safari drives provide an exciting viewing of abundant wildlife. Our group of photographers went...

Despite the fact that your room is a tent it is bigger than most flats in London! You can see the river from your bed so if you genuinely stand a chance of seeing elephants fording the river from the comfort of your duvet! The food is brilliant and it is well worth doing one of their Bush meals. We...

Close your eyes and imagine you are on Safari in the 40's; open your eyes and you are at Larsen's Camp in Samburu National Reserve in Kenya. From the well appointed, large, comfortable "tent" on the banks of the river to the hearty breakfasts and delectable dinners, Larsen's provided the quintessential base camp for game drives. While I was sitting...
