Larsens Tented Camp
Within a gated and fenced compound, Larson’s Tented Camp first opened in 1987 but was taken over in 2003 by Wilderness Lodges, who also own the much larger Samburu Game Lodge. Since then it has been offering comfortable tented accommodation under shady trees, to visitors who like to be under canvas but with the security of a more hotel-like set up.
Our view of Larsens Tented Camp
We have really mixed feelings about Larsen’s Camp. The team was one of the most friendly and efficient that we have met in Kenya, the atmosphere very laid-back and unpretentious, and the guiding superb. However, though spotlessly clean, the camp is dated and a little scruffy, and appears to have lacked any real investment for many years. If you are not bothered about aesthetics, and the generator’s rumble, then the warm welcome and fantastic staff will undoubtedly win you over!
Larsen's pool is unusual at a tented camp, but in this climate it's a welcome asset.
