Saruni Samburu

Kalama Wildlife Conservancy offers 240,000 acres of community owned land forming a ground-breaking conservancy bordering Samburu National Reserve.

Saruni Samburu created waterholes and a new oasis for people and wildlife. Elephant, kudu, reticulated giraffe and Grevy’s zebra are drawn to the waterholes alongside other shy or rare species: leopard, wild dog, striped hyena, caracal.

Cultural immersion programs offer genuine insight into the ways of the Samburu. Guests can explore caves with ancient rock art, fly-camping at Lion’s Rock, night and day game driving or simply immerse themselves in Saruni’s Samburu Wellbeing Space to soothe away the knots of the outside world with massage and traditional herbal treatments.

This beautiful, boutique lodge has five airy villas with satisfyingly luxurious interiors, open-sided walls and canvasshaded decks. Saruni is renowned for delicious cuisine. Each villa has its own dining area, offering self-contained privacy – and magnificent views.
