Larsens Camp is a luxury permanent tented camp set in lush lawns on the bank of the Uaso Nyiro, a river in Samburu National Reserve. Larsens Camp is named after Erik Ole Larsen, a legendary Dane credited with defining the luxury safari under canvas. 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.
Larsen’s Camp is located in Kenya’s famous Samburu National Reserve, 350 km from Nairobi. Samburu is about 1.5 hours scheduled flight from Nairobi.
Accommodation and Meals
Larsens Camp has 20 tented accommodations; all have en suite private bathrooms, flushing toilets, constant hot water and 24 hour electricity (240 volts). Each tent features 1 king or 2 twin beds designed in chic safari style.
The Camp has a dining tent open on three sides and facing the river. Breakfast is served on the lawn and cooked in front of you on a barbecue, while lunch and dinner may be served outside on a deck by the river or in the camp’s dining tent.
Sundowners are served every evening by the camp fire or on the tree deck. Guests can have their pick of cocktails, fine wines, sparkling wines and a variety of beers and soft drinks served at the Larsens Bar.
Facilities at Larsens Camp include a swimming pool, hot tub and pleasant river front deck on which to relax. In the evenings guests meet at the camp fire to share the day’s adventures. A massage service is also available.
