Saruni Samburu

Saruni Samburu is a design lodge located on Kalama Conservancy next to Samburu National Reserve, in Kenya’s wild North. Surrounded by a 95,000 hectares private reserve and perched on top of a spectacular viewpoint, its villas and its swimming pool overlook waterholes where the famous Samburu elephant, leopard, reticulated giraffe and Grevy zebra gather to drink. The vastness and the purity of this African landscape, combined with the untouched local culture, will make your wildlife safari a different experience. Accommodation is in six houses (2 of them are large family villas with two separate bedrooms and bahrooms) with ensuite facilities, a large swimming pool with dramatic view over Samburu, an area for massage and beauty treatments called Samburu Wellbeing Space, and several areas to use as hides or view points for the waterholes that attract elephant, reticulated giraffe, zebra, oryx and all the species that make Kalama so special. Saruni Samburu has its own private airstrip near the Kalama Wildlife Conservancy headquarters, but it is also easily served by the other airstrips of the area where scheduled flights land. Activities include morning, afternoon and night drives in Kalama Conservancy, rock climbing, professionally-led game walks, bush dinners and star gazing. The traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local Samburu people are an important part of the experience. Led by professional Samburu guides, guests enjoy a new dimension of this rightfully popular region: the feeling of exclusivity, of having an incredibly large area totally to their own, and a high level of comfort and tailor-made service.
