Although there are mercifully no reports of any deaths or serious injuries, it looks like the Ewaso Nyiro floods of March 4th have completely swamped all the riverbank lodges and camps in Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba National Reserves, leaving just Samburu Sopa and Saruni to the north of the river, the new Buffalo Springs Simba Lodge on its slightly higher ground and Joy's Camp way over in the southeast in Shaba. I wouldn't forsee any of the following re-opening before the middle of the year, and some may wait to reopen until the next high season, giving them time to make significant repairs and upgrades:
Elephant Bedroom Camp (Atua Enkop)
Elephant Watch Camp
Samburu Game Lodge
Some may have to relocate - I doubt many owners would want to risk a repeat of these floods, which are the highest ever recorded.
It's good to see the government being more proactive than usual and they say they're going to post further updates here.
