We stayed at Sarara Tented Camp while on a photo safari. From our tent, we watched elephant, lesser kudu, hynea, impala (to name just a few) while they drank from the water hole below the infinity swim pool. The Samburu guides are well informed professionals and took us on a walking tour to the singing wells in the area. It... More

If you want to visit a top class camp that is secluded and in the bush, with all the creature comforts, great hosts and knowledgable guides, this is it. One has every opportunity to walk or ride off all the good food. Visit the Singing Wells, up the valley into The Matthews Range to the Cycads, spend a night under... More

Sarara was one of the best experiences my son and I had in Africa. Yes, I got charged by a huge bull elephant while on walking safari - but that was one of the coolest things that happened on my trip- and my guide Malekai (along with the nameless guy with the big gun) took excellent care of me so...

Sarara is a wonderful and very unique camp. It is located where there are no other camps so your sense of isolation is complete. This is an interesting change if you have been to the Mara with all its camps and the many vehicles. This is not a camp you come to if you want to tick off the big... More

This is a truly magical corner of Kenya - wonderfully remote and wild - and I feel privileged to have experienced what going on safari is really about. The staff were extremely friendly, Katie and Jeremy (the hosts) are brilliant company and the camp itself was stunning - every part of our stay was perfect. Over two days we were... More

Our family of four (two teenagers) stayed here for three nights in October. It is the most remarkable place and the perfect counterpoint to the Masai Mara and Serengeti, which we also visited. Jeremy and Kate were great hosts. The views over the Matthews Ranges in this remotest of places were breathtaking. The animal encounters with leopards, reticulated giraffes and... More

We visited Sarara for four days with eight members of our family and two friends at the end of July, 2013. We all still dream about our time there and plan to return! Every aspect of the Sarara experience was matchless: the setting is stunning, the accommodations are beautiful and comfortable with incredible views, including a water hole where varied... More

Sarara is up north in the Matthews Range of Kenya. The camp sits on Samburu tribal land, perched on the side of a mountain. As others have noted, the views are amazing. The wildlife is great, and elephants were often in camp, to the delight of my teenagers who stayed in the bungalow closest to where the elephants like to... More

This is such a unique location, photos really don't do it justice. The camp facilities and food were great and the staff was so friendly and helpful, they just couldn't do enough to help.

Sarara camp is a one-of-a-kind lodge, in an amazing setting, with wonderful hosts, gorgeous rooms and great food. This was a fantastic place to stay to start our family adventure in Kenya! The lodge itself is set in the Samburu tribal land, and is very respectful of the land and its inhabitants. Elephants, Leopards, antelope and baboons are frequent visitors... More
