"Nahim is a fountain of knowledge about the whole area and the Samburu people. Make time for a trip up to the Matthew's Mountain Range with him - absolutely fantastic, unspoilt country and worth the effort" Harriet H, March 2016 (as reviewed on Tripadvisor)

Lion King Bush Camp and Safaris is owned by Nahim Khalil, whose story begins twenty-five years ago, when he first set up a camp in Samburu National Reserve.

A licensed safari guide, born on the Kenyan coast, Nahim spent several years exploring the mountains of the Matthew's Range on foot, living daily life amongst the Samburu people. He is a speaker of several Kenyan languages, a skill which allows him to break down barriers and absorb local cultures in a way which many will rarely experience. He has also spent lengthy periods of time living in Western Kenya, Nairobi, Lamu and the more remote, northern regions. Anyone who meets Nahim will agree he is a master story-teller and someone who'll engage you immediately and keep you entertained for hours on end. He is a passionate follower of current affairs and has wide-ranging interests from politics, conservation, and history to art, archaeology and design. Most of all he enjoys meeting and hosting guests from all walks of life and sharing some of the special, unspoilt corners of Kenya via roads less-travelled. 

Nahim arranges off-the-beaten-track safaris all over Kenya, with a particular love of exploring the lesser known routes. His safaris promise an experience of someone whose love of their homeland has taken them far beyond the realms of any standard tourist track.
