We stayed there for new years, it was a truly life changing and unforgettable experience. The rooms are fantastic, almost tent like with a great view overlooking the wildlife and animals. The best part was the outdoor shower, you truly feel your in the outdoors and free, a fully functional bathroom was a great to have as well. The food was very yummy and always fresh. The staff are very friendly and highly knowledgeable of the animals and the history of the place. Great place to relax, get in touch with the wild life and see the beauty of Africa. They do have WIFI in one location, if you really need to be in touch with the world.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perched on the top of the Kalama mountains with an all-round view of Northern Kenya all the way to snow-covered Mount Kenya, Saruni Samburu is a design lodge that is introducing a fresh concept to a well-known safari destination. Built on the pristine land owned by the Kalama Wildlife Conservancy in 240,000 acres-large Gir Gir Group Ranch, it is only seven kilometers - and 20 minutes of exciting game drive - away from the Northern border of Samburu National Reserve, a celebrated elephant sanctuary. The lodge offers first-class safari experience in a totally unspoilt environment, far from the beaten tracks but very close to the wildlife. We currently have 6 villas and a capacity of 20 guests. Owned and operated by Saruni in the Masai Mara, Saruni Samburu has been facilitated by the Northern Rangeland (Nrt), an umbrella organization developed by Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to promote tourism and conservation in Northern Kenya. We game drive inside Samburu National Reserve and Buffalo Springs National Reserve, but many activities take place in Kalama, a well-kept secret of Kenya's North. The recent introduction of water means that Kalama is becoming an important attraction to all the Samburu wildlife. Our activities include night and morning game drive in Kalama Conservancy, visits to the caves where in the past the Samburu have painted and carved rock art during meat-eating feasts, professionally-led game walks, bush dinners and star gazing. The traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local Samburu people are an important part of the experience. Led by professional Samburu guides, our guests enjoy a new dimension of this rightfully popular region: the feeling of exclusivity, of having an incredibly large area totally to their own, and a high level of comfort and tailor-made service. ... more less
