About This Accommodation

Saruni Samburu, located in the Kalama Community Conservancy, next to the Samburu National Park, is all about the views. Built into the rocky hillside in a remote area, wild land and animals are abundant for as far as the eye can see.

Saruni Samburu’s six rooms are private and very well-appointed. They are open-facing with breathtaking views that can be appreciated from your bed. We particularly recommend booking room 5 for its views in two different directions-the bedroom looks over Mount Kenya and and the living area towards the bush. The accommodation feels genuinely African with enough modern touches to keep the feeling light and focused on the views.

There are two infitity pools boasting panoramic views in different directions and sundowners on a rocky outcrop are a real treat.

Delicious Italian-style meals are served in the dining area, but for those looking for extra privacy, meals can be catered in your room. Game drives in both the totally private Kalama Conservancy, Buffalo Springs (shared with Sasaab) and Samburu National Park with expert Samburu guides. Bush walks and cultural visits with the local Samburu community are all part of a stay at this very special place.

Saruni Samburu’s family room is closest to the main areas, as it can be a walk to get to the rooms further out. In general, though, the camp is not best for small children - the whole camp is set quite high, there are steep drop-offs and barriers are at a minimum. Although not best for small children, for slightly older kids the Saruni Samburu Warrior for a Week program is lots of fun and Saruni Samburu is always a great choice for couples and honeymooners.

We love Saruni Samburu for its incredible panoramas, the game-viewing and the warm staff interaction.

What Our Clients Think

Wow! I would definitely come back to Saruni Samburu. Great place to relax and unwind, fabulous place for a honeymoon too! Loved everything."

The tent is a cave on a mountain top and was unlike anything I'd experienced. The fire pit outside was great as was the communal dining. Andrea and the staff (Peter, our "butler") went above and beyond expectations accommodating our requests."

Stunning lodging on top of a hill in a harsh environment. Food was excellent."

Just can't say enough about the view. Every villa has a breathtaking view. We didn't meet anyone in the camp who didn't have the same impression as we did. Camp Manager, Zoe Wilson and guide, Lepaiyon were great!"
