Saruni Samburu is the only lodge in Kalama Conservancy, which borders Samburu National Reserve, with a vast expanse of unspoiled wilderness to explore and exclusively enjoy. You are guided from start to finish by Samburu warriors who are passionate about their land and their culture, learning first-hand about their fascinating customs and traditions and gaining ancient, local knowledge about the land and the animals – a truly authentic experience.

The Samburu ecosystem is one of the most exciting in East Africa and is made of several national reserves, private ranches and communally-owned group ranches that are all interconnected. Famous for its large population of elephants and unique northern species of animals found only in this area of Kenya, Samburu stands out as a unique, wildlife rich and diverse wilderness.

Saruni Samburu’s six luxury, eco-chic villas are open and spacious, heralding spectacular views over Kalama Conservancy and Mount Kenya.

Guests have the remarkable opportunity to see the Samburu Five – five rare and endemic animals to the Samburu ecosystem. They are the Gerenuk, the Reticulated giraffe, the Somali ostrich, the Grevy’s zebra, the Beisa oryx. Kalama Conservancy, the wildlife sanctuary where Saruni Samburu is located and which borders Samburu National Reserve, has an abundance of other rare species, like the leopard, the Striped hyena, the African civet and African Wild dog or Painted hunting dogs.

Experience the elephant-proof, open hide based at a waterhole in front of the lodge. Here both novice and professional photographers can capture animals and elephants at ground level. Being in the middle of an arid area, the hide also provides excellent opportunities to photograph from ground level and from very close up the predators of Samburu, especially lion and leopard.

Learn the bush and survival skills of world-class warriors, tracking animals, making fire and living at peace with the harsh wilderness in Saruni’s Warrior’s Academy – a unique program for children on safari.

Tourism directly supports conservation – by visiting Saruni Samburu, you are directly giving back to the community who protects this beautiful land, improving their quality of life, while at the same time encouraging the purpose for conservation.
