Samburu has a very evocative and iconic landscape that reminds each visitor of “the Africa of my dreams”: dry and stunningly beautiful, wild and at the same time serene. Samburu also has one of the best concentrations of elephant, but also good numbers of lion, leopard and as well as the plains game. Then, there’s the Samburu Special Five: Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx, Somali ostrich and gerenuk (species that occur only in this part of the country). Wild dogs are also regularly seen. You will experience no crowds: the fact that we have exclusive use of our own private wilderness of Kalama Conservancy, a vast and pristine wilderness of over 200,000 acres, make your game drives unique and uncrowded.
Saruni Samburu has the ‘WOW’ factor from start to finish – imagine 360 degree views and not a visible light at night. You feel as if you have stepped back in time. The discreet eco-design of the lodge is spread out over levels, offering privacy, exclusivity and maximises the incredible vistas and views, making it perfect for couples, honeymooners and families alike – six villas offer a very personal stay. All villas have open sides to take in the fabulous panoramic views. After a thrilling game drive, unwind at one of our two infinity pools, treat yourself to a rejuvenating spa treatment or simply relax in your private lounge; you will really feel like you are on top of the world!
