I am writing this review as it was extremely difficult to find information about the Samburu campsite before booking a trip with GAdventures, who uses this site often on their Kenya Camping Safari. I hope this helps future travelers.
We came to this campsite at the end of a long day of driving, followed by a short and exhilarating game drive in Samburu NP. This is situated very near the gate, and is in a clearing of a copse of trees, with a permanent cooking and toilet facility. Make no mistake, this is not "glamping" - the tents are all nylon with fly tarps and a thin piece of foam with a blanket on the ground as a sleeping mat. There is no light bleed, as it's within the park, and no artificial lighting to guide your way. It is simply a beautiful, wild site, with vervet monkeys in the trees all around you, elephant calls and other animal sounds in the near distance as you fall asleep. Also, at dusk, little mouse bats come out and fly manically around the umbrella acacias near the cook tent, so you have a show as you wait for supper.
The tents were quite clean and well maintained, and mine had a metal D-ring at the inside top-most part which I could attach my headlamp with a carabiner, making an overhead light. I could also stand up in the center, (I'm 5'8 or 1.73 meters), making life much easier. The zippers were sturdy, and the mesh allowed for cool breezes and no bugs. Common sense applies - don't leave trash or food inside the tent, and you won't have curious monkeys or ravenous bugs come visit. Take off your shoes outside the tent if you want a clean sleeping area inside.
The toilet facility was a concrete block structure across the road with Western style flush toilets into a long drop tank, and cold water showers with gravity feed force from the roof. The lighting was completely provided by your torch, so be prepared, and the route can be disorienting at night, since you're walking through some bushes towards other bushes, which obscure sight of both the tents and the toilet structure. Best done during the day the first few times. In truth it was much more of a toilet facility than I expected, so it was all fine with me.
The cooking shelter is a dark shack made of palm leaves and posts with a tarp slung over the roof and between the trees and the table, as there are many vervet monkeys in the trees who fear nothing when tasty buffets are laid out. The staff carries slingshots to scare the monkeys off (not to hurt them), but they are clever bandits. There is a standing collapsible tub of water for doing dishes and cleaning hands, and the cook stove is run on fuel, not a generator. There is a long picnic table with those ubiquitous plastic molded deck chairs for seating. Given the rudimentary nature of the facilities, I was impressed by the meals the camp cook was able to make every night.
Finally, at night, there was a small bonfire area towards which the plastic chairs were pulled from the dining area to enjoy the huge moon and stars over the park. Thoroughly a delightful, rustic place.
