The main guest area, also shaded by a canopy of acacia trees, offers a comfortable reception and lounge, a spacious dining room, atmospheric bar and a broad deck, which offers unparalleled game-viewing across the wide reaches of the Uwaso Nyiro River. The Samburu region is the best place to find several endemic northern species, including gerenuk, the reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra.

Ashnil Samburu camp offers accommodation in 24 tents, located on either side of the main buildings and looking out over the river. Each tent features its own private terrace, a king sized bed, attractively presented in local wildwood, a dressing area, sitting area and bathroom (hot and cold running water, shower and flushed WC). Disabled access is provided.
