A beautiful, small property surrounded by 95,000 hectares of private wildlife conservancy, and perched on top of a spectacular viewpoint.
The spacious villas and two large infinity pools overlook a waterhole where the famous Samburu elephants, leopards, reticulated giraffes, oryx and Grevy's zebras gather to drink. The vastness and purity of this African landscape, combined with the untouched local culture, make your safari a truly unique experience.
The traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local Samburu people are an important part of the experience at Saruni Samburu. Led by professional Samburu guides, guests enjoy the feeling of exclusivity and a high level of comfort and tailor-made service.
