Samburu Simba Lodge


... formerly known as Buffalo Springs Lodge is located in Buffalo Springs National Reserve in the Central Region of Kenya.

Situated on the south bank of the Ewaso Ngiro river in the Buffalo Springs sector of the reserve, Samburu Simba Lodge is a large lodge with extensive public areas, a swimming pool area and around 40 guest rooms in shared blocks.

Activities are centred on vehicle safari inside the reserve.

The main potential downsides are the large size of the lodge, the limited range of activities on offer and the potential for vehicle clusters on major sightings.

When this lodge opened in 2009 it had access to both sides of the river. However during the great flood of 2012 it was cut off from Samburu when the bridge was washed out. It now has virtually exclusive access to the slightly less interesting areas south of the river, along with one other lodge, but getting to the north side means an unattractive diversion via the bridge out on the main road.
