We are proud to be able to offer the ultimate safari and beach ‘circuit’ with guests staying at our lodges and camps across Kenya, as introduced below:
In February 2017, Saruni was proud to expand its luxury collection of lodges and tented camps with the opening of ‘Saruni Rhino’. Located in Sera Community Conservancy, in the wild, undiscovered northern frontier of Kenya, the camp is around 1.5 driving hours from our Saruni Samburu lodge in nearby Kalama Conservancy. Saruni Rhino offers the first rhino tracking experience in East Africa: an amazing walking safari that provides a uniquely thrilling adventure, but also allows our guests to actively contribute to the protection of this iconic species.
Comprised of two elegant ‘bandas’ (open stone cottages, previously known as ‘Kauro Guesthouse’) sleeping 4-6 initially and a main ‘mess’ cottage for dining and relaxing, Saruni Rhino is nestled amidst swaying doum palms dotted along a dry river bed (the Kauro ‘lugga’, in the heart of the conservancy) with sweeping views of a nearby waterhole and dramatic landscape so typical of the north. The waterhole is a popular watering stop-off for a diverse range of wildlife: elephant, impala, birdlife, hyena, oryx, Grevy’s zebra and much more, making it great ‘bush TV’ from the comfort of your cottage’s sandy verandah at any time. The dry river bed proves the quintessential torch-lit bush dinner location under the vast African skies. For more information, visit www.sarunirhinotracking.com (opened February 2017).
Saruni Mara is the only small, boutique lodge in the Mara, with five elegant cottages, one family villa and one private villa. The beautiful rooms are each decorated to a unique theme with a luxurious, classic safari feel. The lodge is nestled in a secluded valley in the heart of the most exciting wilderness in Africa: Mara North Conservancy – an exclusive, private wildlife concession bordering the world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve. Encounter Africa’s Big Five and the most remarkable natural spectacle on Earth, the Great Migration. Enjoy the Italian-inspired cuisine, exceptional service and being immersed in nature from your private verandah, the Wellbeing Space and the open lounge and dining area. Masai warriors guide you throughout, sharing their ancient wisdom of the area and animals and their fascinating way of life - a truly life-enriching safari experience.
