INCLUDED: We are delighted to offer guests staying at Saruni Rhino a scintillating, ‘thrill-of-a-lifetime’ experience: a walking safari tracking the black rhino on foot, accompanied by an expert Samburu 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 sanctuary. The tracking sessions take place early morning or late afternoon. One daily tracking session per person is included in the daily conservation fee and is paid directly back to the community to help protect and preserve this endangered species. Responsible tourism at its best!
The vast rhino sanctuary has been fenced in what is one of the most advanced conservation projects in Kenya. 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!
Our lodge managers will assist you in planning your stay with us, day by day, upon your arrival
