Larsens Tented Camp

The Larsens Tented Camp

Larsens Tented Camp was opened in 1987 and is set in lush lawns on the bank of the Uaso Nyiro, a river in Samburu National Reserve, 320kms north of Nairobi on the border of the old Northern Frontier Province. Tranquility and nature embrace you the minute you enter Larsens with the river being the perfect stage for an endless pageant of wildlife - elephants rolling and trumpeting in the shallows, timid impala nervously drinking, baboons and vervet monkeys swinging through the canopy of trees. The only man made noise is that of the young Samburu flutist as he slowly makes his way along the river front. He unobtrusively doubles as a palmnut thrower when the monkeys become too bold.

Although Larsens does not have a pool, guests are welcome to use this facility at the nearby Samburu Lodge free of charge.

The treehouse is an excellent place to enjoy a sundowner as you look out onto the plains as the animals gracefully retreat.

Restaurants/Bars

Tent Bar

In the bar, Eric Larsen's old cabin trunks and pith helmets add to the period flavour while you play backgammon or chess on his original boards.

Larsens Lounge

For the rainy days of which there are very few, or for the evening that you can not sleep, a small `card' tent stocks a number of board games and a library of magazines and wildlife books.

Recreation Facilities

Swimming Pool

Although Larsens does not have a pool, guests are welcome to use this facility at the nearby Samburu Lodge free of charge. 

The Camp Fire

Many a tale is exchanged around the fire each evening. Amidst the glow from the embers, the calls of the African night, a waft of cigar smoke and the kick of a White Mischief liqueur, game drives are relived and personal histories exchanged - it's a wonderful venue for making new friends and imbibing the essence of Africa as did the safari pioneers so many years ago.

Treehouse

An excellent place to enjoy a sundowner as you look out onto the plains as the animals walk by.
 

Excursions & Activities

Game Drive

In the afternoon take a game drive to see the Beisa oryx, Grevys zebra, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk and blue legged ostrich _ animals unique to this region.
