Samburu Saruni is perched on the top of the Kalama Mountains with a panoramic view of Northern Kenya as far as the snow-covered peak of Mount Kenya.

This is a designer lodge that has introduced a fresh and exciting concept to the well-known safari destination of Samburu. Built on 240,000 acres of pristine land owned by the Kalama Wildlife Conservancy, it is only seven km’s, 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.

The lodge provides accommodation in just six villas (four of them being large family villas, each with two separate bedrooms and two spectacular bathrooms). There is also a large swimming pool with dramatic views over Samburu, and a waterhole that attracts elephant, reticulated giraffe, zebra, oryx and all the species that make Kalama so special.

At Saruni, they believe in good, healthy, tasty meals, with their cuisine having a strong Italian influence. They love to experiment with the great local ingredients such as fish and vegetables. With many special delicacies to enjoy, they will fulfil anyone’s tastes catering for vegetarians and any other special requests.

Safari activities are undertaken inside Samburu National Reserve and Buffalo Springs National Reserve, but many activities also take place in Kalama, a well-kept secret of Kenya’s North. Activities include morning and evening game drives, visits to the caves to view painted and carved rock art, 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, 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 attentive service.
