Both our tent and the main area overlooked the waterhole that had regular visits from loads of baboon, warthog and giraffe among others. There is not a vast amount of 'game' up here but a visit to 'the singing wells' ( with a knowlageable guide) to see the locals watering their livestock and a visit to the local rangers station...

Set in a conservancy of a million acres with no other hotel facilities, Sarara means you have the scenery to yourself. The views from the camp are beautiful, and the rooms are wonderful - spacious, comfortable with a nod to the elements (outdoor showers with the monkeys for company). For me the highlight was not the wildlife (although the elephants... More

Sarara is fantastically run by Mark, And Katie and their team of friendly and helpful staff. Luxury tented camp with bush bathrooms - showering with monkeys watching and buffalo chomping behind you, a real experience. The local samburu guides and villages are really worth visiting, we were not sure initially as previous experience of Masai villages was very fake and... More

Sarara is set into the Kopje face so therefore quite hilly - no one and no where could I find this info except from photos! For my problem they would drive and collect us from the back of the property. The rooms were lovely and spacious and our views were stunning looking out over a waterhole where the elephants would...

A wonderful and beautiful place with lovely lovely staff. We would change nothing about it. The view was spectacular and the food and service matched it. Kenya is as beautiful as ever in every way. We will be back.

Sarara is truly a remarkable place. From the beautifully appointed tents to dining in the open air lodge, to the vistas. At night, elephants come to the watering hole just below the free form pool, and day safaris to see African wildlife leave you in awe of the African continent. We met several Samburu warriors whose hospitality warned our hearts.... More

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
