- Stunning panoramic views
- Excellent Game viewing
- Unique, luxury lodge
Saruni Samburu is situated on a hill just North of Samburu National Park in Kenya. One of the best options in the area, this unique lodge has lots of character and a really high standard of safari.
The main areas are chic and contemporary with incredible views. From an elevated position guests can enjoy panoramic views over the plains which really are something special. The lounge, dining and bar areas are spacious and luxurious and two swimming pools are available to all the guests. A ‘Well being Space’ offers a range of spa treatments including a complimentary back and neck massage. Italian owned, expect some fantastic Italian cuisine too!
Saruni Samburu offers a range of different activities. Game drives are the focus of the lodge with some excellent guides who take guests through rich conservation areas and plan well to avoid the heavy traffic sometimes seen in Samburu National Park. Night drives and guided bush walks are also led as well as cultural village visits and visits to local caves.
Six luxury villas are a mix of one and two bedrooms and include both a family and an exceptional honeymoon suite. Each villa is unique in its design and style and built into the rock at various locations. All have private lounge/dining areas and terraces to enjoy those incredible views.
Children over five are welcome at Saruni and a special ‘Warriors Academy’ teaches bush skills and animal tracking that is a great activity for families. It is worth noting the unfenced nature of the camp means for small children this location will require constant supervision.
Saruni Samburu manages to be one of the most unique lodges we have seen with a culturally rich offering. An intimate and personal lodge with great safari opportunities and in a fantastic location this is one not to miss.

I had just the most incredible time on the climb.
The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.
George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.

The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
