Authentic Under Canvas Experience
Guests can encounter true Africa at Saruni Wild: under canvas and vast African skies, out in the middle of unspoiled wilderness, surrounded by and part of nature – a truly authentic and life-enriching experience.

Location, Location, Location
Saruni Wild is located in the heart of the Masai Mara plains, on the border between Lemek Conservancy and Mara North Conservancy. Surronded by tens of thousands acres of prestine, untouched wilderness, the camp has the most classic Masai Mara setting. The wildlife thrive right next to tents.

Personal & Exclusive
One of the most remarkable aspects of a safari at Saruni Wild is the privacy and exclusivity, and the personal touch. Our Maasai guides host you, and eagerly share their ancient customs and traditions, as well as their local knowledge of the landscape and wildlife. Over and above being professionally qualified, our guides are a part of the tribe who are the proud custodians of this incredible wilderness, and who have known this area as their home for centuries.

Wildlife Encounters
Set amongst teeming plains game, wildlife is found all around the camp, as the tents are within their natural habitat. The Mara Serengeti ecosystem, of which the Mara North Conservancy and Saruni Wild is a part, has the highest density of predators and plains game of any wilderness in the world, and is home to the most thrilling, awe-inspiring natural spectacle on the planet – the Great Migration.

Unique Warrior Programme
Saruni Wild is the perfect location for our ‘Warriors Academy’ programme, where guests spend a few days learning the survival skills of the revered Maasai warriors, taking part in teaching in the same way as a junior warrior learn to track animals and craft tools on the plains of the Masai Mara. This is a particularly exciting activity for families with children.

Community Focused
Saruni Wild is a founding member of the Mara North Conservancy, which provides jobs, income, training and guidance for the local Maasai people. Tourism directly supports conservation – by visiting Saruni Wild, you are directly giving back to the community who protects this beautiful land, while at the same time encouraging the purpose for conservation.
