The Award-Winning Activities
‘BLACK RHINO TRACKING EXPERIENCE’ AT SARUNI RHINO

With Saruni Rhino, our intimate 3-banda camp as a base, we offer guests a scintillating, ‘thrill-of-a-lifetime’ experience: a walking safari tracking black rhino on foot, accompanied by a guide and a highly-trained Sera Conservancy ranger leading you in safety to the locations of some of the 18 rhinos throughout the 54,000 hectares-large Sera Rhino sanctuary.
Our expert Samburu guides game drive you a tracking distance away from the nearest rhino, leaving the vehicle and continuing on foot (very lightly to not give away our presence) to metres from the grazing rhino. The tension is palpable as you come across the rhino in such close proximity for the first time; heart beating, pulse racing, curiosity and excitement mounting – it doesn’t get more thrilling than this.

‘WARRIORS ACADEMY’ AT SARUNI MARA
Whilst on safari at Saruni Mara or Saruni Wild in the Masai Mara, we offer our guests the chance to participate in a complimentary activity called the ‘Warriors Academy’. The Warriors Academy is a special interactive safari experience with a strong educational flavour, designed especially for families with children or small groups. It is a fun learning experience, that allows guests to explore not only the wildlife, but also the authentic lifestyle of one of the culturally fascinating tribes left in Africa; the Maasai. Under the tutelage of their ‘Moran’, or warriors, guests get to know, enjoy and understand these unique people and see the Kenyan wilderness from a different perspective.
The Warriors Academy is a totally different walking safari, in addition to the ‘usual’ safari activities, that leaves a big impression long after. A mixture of cultural insights, physical exercise, learning and family-bonding time! Watch here
