INCLUDED: At Saruni Samburu we offer our guests a unique experience: access to an elephant-proof, open hide based at a waterhole, where from photographers can capture wildlife and birdlife from ground level. Designed with the needs of photographers in mind, buried underground, and covered with earth on three sides as well as on the roof, located a few steps from our waterhole, it is ‘painted’ with Samburu red earth and covered with shrubs and bushes: the perfect spot for ‘stealing’ amazing images of what occurs at our well-frequented waterhole. It can have up to 8 guests inside, it has maps and books available, and bean bags for photographers. The waterhole offers a unique opportunity to spot from very close up the elephants that come and drink its water, the fantastic birds’ species and the ‘Samburu Special Five’. Being in the middle of an arid area, the hide also provides excellent opportunities to photograph the predators of Samburu, especially lion and leopard.
Our lodge managers will assist you in planning your stay with us, day by day, upon your arrival.
