We returned to Saruni Mara for 5 nights in mid September 2012 (one year after our first visit). Once again we had a fantastic stay and were pleased to meet the staff again. Saruni now has a family villa which was great for my wife, daughter and me. The villa has two seperate, luxury suites with a huge lounge/dining area linking the two suites. In the evening we experienced showering whlist watching a herd of buffalos grazing close to the tented suite. Lemeria was again our wonderful guide and we experienced some amazing animal sightings, including watching a lioness successfully hunt a wildebeest and gazelle within 10 minutes of each kill, and lions mating. There were large herds of wildebeest in the North Mara which attracted the normal predators (leopard, cheetah, lions and hyenas). Dining at the camp is mainly based on Italian dishes and was superb. One big plus is the small size of the lodge which enables one to interact with staff and other guests around the fire before dinner in the evening. This gives a casual and friendly ambience at the lodge. The spa facilities are also very good.We were also fortunate to visit the local livestock market and attend the Sunday church service (this lodge interacts with the local community) We will certainly be back at Saruni in the near future.
