Lovely Larsen’s tented camp….

We drove into Samburu National park around 9am on the 7th May and after a short game drive we pulled into Larsens camp and debated whether to stay there or not. After a 10 minutes or so Sib negotiated a price and said he would treat all of us!
Stayed at the Larsens Tented Camp for two nights and had views of the river Ewas Nyiki with elephants noises in the background. We could see herds elephants crossing the river with their small ones and the adolescents looking after them.
It was amazing place a real treat. The food was included and we all ate as if we hadn’t eaten in days. Nic loved it and was happy eating pork, lamb and beef again!
On the first morning, we had coffee brought to our tent by Franco at 6.30am and Lily had chocy tea. Bless. It was a lovely.
We went on morning game drive and saw three lionesses lying on the sand road, two giraffe sparring and plenty of elephant plus a crocodile!
We went back to Larsons for the most enormous breakfast and felt full until lunch but of course managed to squeeze lunch in too and I couldn’t refuse the apricot crumble and custard!
We laid around for the day and enjoyed the ambience and swam with Lily in the pool.
After having the most wonderful experience at Larsen’s we checked out and headed south to Isiolo and stopped at Nanyuki in the Sportsmans hotel where Pris worked and met her husband 40 years before.
Thanks for the treat Sib! Amazing experience.
