What a stunning lodge and site! This was my second visit to Sasaab and it was even better than before. The guide and ranger remembered me and treated me like long-lost family. The food is 5-star, the accomodation is luxury and the game viewing is spectacular. My sincere thanks to the managers, Scott and Nicole, the chef and my guide...

This has been my visit to Sasaab and I find it very difficult to leave it. It is the most peaceful, serene and relaxing place. The accommodation is amazing, meals are divine and the views are to die for. I absolutely love the plunge pools. The staff outstanding in all respects. My favourite is tent 5.

Thank you so much for you kind words. We are very happy that your holiday at Sasaab was exactly what we intended it to be. Sasaab has a beauty of its own that is difficult to explain.

After a long journey across the bush, on some very rocky pass and a very strong weather, you discover in the middle of nowhere the lodges of Sasaab perched on the hills with a landscape of mountains at 360 degrees. We received a warm welcome from the owners Margaret and Ron with smiles and some very refreshing drinks. The service...

I stayed at Sasaab for the first time last August; I loved it so much I returned a year later. Sasaab is located outside of Samburu National Reserve, perched over the Ewaso Ngiro river.
