Larsens Camp in Samburu National Park

You are Here: › Larsens Camp

Larsens Camp is named after Erik Ole Larsen, a legendary Dane credited with defining the luxury safari under canvas.

It is a luxury permanent tented camp set in lush lawns on the bank of the Uaso Nyiro, a river in Samburu National Reserve.

The river is 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.

All tents are equipped with a private bathroom with running hot and cold water.
