Forget the worries, hustle and bustle of city life and discover a whole new you…
Five Nights in the bush
Fly to two of Africa’s greatest game reserves and witness the wonders of Samburu and the world famous Masai Mara. Spend the evenings camping in the luxurious outdoor tents across three wilderness locations, Norfolk, Samburu Intrepids and Mara Intrepids. The 30 luxury tents are spread across a large riverside site to ensure you optimum privacy and peace. Each tent is furnished in the classic style of the grand African safaris, with large four-poster beds and elegant wooden furniture, complimented with contemporary facilities. Samburu Intrepids is a peaceful camp, deliciously cooled by the river breeze and the forest. Each tent sits on a shady raised platform overlooking the river with a secluded view of passing elephants and the occasional crocodile lounging on the river bank.
The Big Five
Mara Intrepids is a short drive from the Mara River, where more than a million wildebeest and zebra make their perilous migration crossing every July and August. For the remainder of the year, the trained safari guides go the extra mile to showcase some of the world’s finest game viewing, with large local populations of plains game including bushpig, springbox and ostrich as well as elephants, rhinos, buffalos, and all of the Big Cats. Samburu Intrepids looks out over riverbanks where herds of elephant, buffalo and zebra come daily to drink, together with the rarer ‘northern species’ of reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx and long-necked gerenuk antelope.
Fulfill your Five senses
Start the day with a sumptuous bush breakfast after a morning capturing the wildlife appear in the sunrise. Take in the beautiful surroundings and watch the day come alive. You are encouraged to immerse yourself in the local culture to further your understanding of the local community, such as the customs of the Samburu tribesmen. At the end of an adventurous day relax under the stars around the wood burning moonlight campfire and listen to the peaceful jungle noises.
