Sasaab is a stunning lodge set on a hillside in the Westgate Community Conservancy in Kenya’s wild north. Its design is a fusion of Moroccan and Swahili influence, reflecting both the size and the beauty of Africa, while capturing the essence of safari. The 9 luxurious rooms are very spacious, with comfortable beds, Egyptian cotton sheets and with a private veranda and plunge pool providing complete privacy and scenic views over the Samburu plains and the Ewaso Nyiro River.
In harmony with its surroundings, the lodge is located in a culturally rich area amongst the proud and fascinating Samburu tribe. They offer unique encounters with the local people by organizing special visits to traditional ceremonies as well as visits to their homesteads and local markets.
The cuisine at Sasaab is impeccable, using only the freshest ingredients from their own vegetable garden. The lodge’s modern beauty and health centre “Spasaab” uses 100% natural skin care products and is located on the banks of the river, allowing guests to relax and get pampered amongst breathtaking scenery. The Spa also offers enough room for yoga and pilates classes, as well as a tranquil area by the plunge pool.
This place has real wow factor. Its main, Moroccan-style lodge unravels beneath pillars, etched with mother-of-pearl, and its elevation affords priceless vistas of the Samburu plains and famous river (a sight I later drank-in from the lodge’s turquoise infinity pool).

It is indeed a privilege to spent time in such an awesome place – stunning views of the river & Samburu. Great hospitality, excellent service & food. A must do again.
The rooms are beautiful and serene, well, except the night we had elephants right outside our tent but that’s why we came on safari! The food was amazing (even for a vegetarian like me) and our guides were so knowledgeable and very fun. I could go on and on about this place but it’s best if you just go see it for yourself!
