Saruni Samburu

Saruni After a quick two hours on the road, you will arrive in Samburu, which is considerably hotter and drier than the lush Laikipia Plateau. The soil in this area is so deeply red that it turns the powerful river a beautiful shade of brown that would make Willy Wonka proud. Overlooking the Samburu National Reserve, home to the Big 5 and the endemic Samburu Special 5 (Reticulated Giraffe, Beisa Oryx, Grevy’s Zebra, Somali Ostrich, and Gerenuk antelope), Saruni is situated on a private concession known as Kalama. There are game drives in the reserve as well as on the Kalama concession.

Saruni’s six rooms are appropriately referred to as villas. Their size and style more than make up for their lack of quantity. Four of these villas are family-sized, with a communal living area, two or more large bedrooms, and every inch of the villa designed to take advantage of the breathtaking views over the Samburu Reserve. The villas can be completely covered up at night but are purposefully left open to the elements during the day to allow a refreshing breeze to flow through. There is a nice dinner conversation about which of the two swimming pools at the resort has the finest view!

The activities and the way the children are led are what make this location so amazing for children.
