Saruni Samburu is a deluxe lodge, set amongst the Kalama Community Conservancy, and happens to be the only lodge in the 200,000 acres of unspoiled wilderness.
Six family friendly eco villas make up the lodge and all boast en-suite bathrooms, spacious living rooms and cosy roaring fire places. Villa 6, the lodge's newest property, can be booked out exclusively as a family unit and offers spectacular views out over the Mathews Range.
Meals at the lodge are served by the Samburu and take on Italian influences and guest can choose to dine in the privacy of their own villa or in lodge's communal dining area. Our personal favourite way to dine, however, has to be in the wild on a traditional safari bush dinner.
Facilities at Saruni include two infinity pools with sweeping views, Samburu Wellbeing Space and a fantastic Photographic Hide. Guests can enjoy an array of wellness treatments at the spa before heading to the ground level hide and capturing elephants at the watering hole.
There's an abundance of activities to do in and around Samburu for all including local village tours for the culture vultures, birdwatching for the twitchers, night game drives and sundowners for the adventurous and helicopter rides for the thrill seekers.
The newest treat at Saruni is the 'Saruni Rhino Camp' a new two lodged property (a two hours' drive away) available exclusively to Samburu guests. The lodge offers the first black rhino tracking experience in East Africa and as such provides a thrilling and educational walking safari.
