Samburu Serena Safari Lodge


Echoes the robust rhythms of African riverfront life

If you look closely, there hidden amongst the thorn scrub and dappled palm shade, framed by endless skies on a backdrop of dust red plains, you may find Samburu Serena Safari Lodge. Here on the lush banks of the Uaso Nyiro River in the very heart of the Samburu Game Reserve in Kenya's rugged, semi-arid Northern Province sits Samburu Serena Safari Lodge a place of rest and relaxation and of course amazing game viewing.

The long, low, shingled buildings of the lodge blend seamlessly into the soft green of the acacia woodlands lining the banks of the languid brown loops of the Uaso Nyiro River, whilst the architectural style makes optimum use of soft local stone and traditional Samburu building motifs. The cool of the interior, meanwhile, reflects a strong ‘khaki and canvas’ safari influence enriched by a vibrant selection of age-old Samburu masks, spears and ceremonial treasures.

Each room is accommodated in a prettily shingled timber cottage with its own blossomed veranda looking out over the river. The décor melds world-class luxury with quintessential Africa and features a tranquil blend of traditional safari colours, draped nets, soft lamps and stunning Samburu art.

The breeze-cooled bar and dining area overlooks the flood-lit expanses of the river and game viewing arena where lumbering herds of elephant gather nightly and shy leopards sometimes visit. Menus are styled to feature traditional bush barbecues, spicy ethnic cuisine, internationally-themed dishes and a broad selection of hearty safari favourites.

Samburu provides one of the few sanctuaries in Kenya for the endangered Grevy’s zebra, the rare beisa oryx and the blue-shanked Somali ostrich. One of the few places in the world where you can see these unique and endangered animals. And that's before we even get started on the rare and unique birds that can be found here also.

Please Note: We at Rhino Africa frown on leopard baiting and feeding and this lodge as well as some others in the Samburu area sometimes engage in this activity, if you, like us, feel this practice is inappropriate then contact us and we can find you alternative options with a policy more in line with our way of thinking.
