Saruni Samburu is a ‘design’ lodge located 3km from Samburu National Reserve, in Kenya’s wild north. Surrounded by a 95,000 hectares private conservancy and perched on top of a spectacular viewpoint, its eight rooms and large swimming pool overlook several waterholes where the famous Samburu elephant, leopard, reticulated giraffe, Oryx and Gravy’s zebra gather to drink. The vastness and the purity of this African landscape, combined with the untouched local culture, makes your safari a different experience.
The lodge offers a first-class safari experience in a totally un-spoilt environment, off the beaten track and very close to the wildlife. Saruni Samburu also features an area for massage and beauty treatments called Samburu Wellbeing Space, and several areas to use as hides or view points for the waterhole. As well as our game drives that include Samburu National Reserve, Buffalo Springs National Reserve and West Gate Conservancy, the traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local Samburu people are an important part of the experience.
Led by professional Samburu guides, our guests enjoy a new dimension of this rightfully popular region: the feeling of exclusivity, of having an incredibly large area totally to themselves, and a high level of comfort and tailormade service.
There are six open-faced houses, all of which have their own seating areas, multiple verandahs and private dining areas (2 of the houses are large family villas with two separate en suite bedrooms and dressing rooms). Saruni Samburu also offers a large swimming pool with dramatic views 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.
