Why we like it?
Not only is it stylish and relaxed, but the service here is exceptional. From the warmest of welcomes, to the Spasaab treatments offered here and the local Samburu guides who take great pride in the lodge and their land, it is one of our favourite lodges in the area. Make sure you spend an evening with the Samburu stargazing, not just for the astronomy, but the stories that go with it!
