Fodor's Review

The best tent camps provide peaceful refuge from the bush without sacrificing outdoor magnificence, and few can match the exquisite relief you'll find at Larsens. The arid Samburu environs give way to a cool, shady retreat under the thick forest that envelops this Small Luxury Hotels camp along the Ewaso Nyiro River. A young Masai stands with slingshot at the ready, so that you can enjoy a gourmet riverside meal undisturbed by the vervet monkeys who wander the grounds.

(They are unharmed; he merely disperses them.) Come out of the shade to swim in the pool with gorgeous views of the Samburu hills to the east. Or head up to Larsens' tree platform overlooking the hills to the west for a spectacular sundowner. Your tent with private porch is just a short stroll away. Inside you'll find a generous king-size bed, some with an additional twin, and spacious bathrooms with large rainshowers and thoughtful touches such as Molton Brown toiletries.
