Saruni Samburu

Perched on the top of the Kalama Mountains, heart of the Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy, with an all-round view of Northern Kenya all the way to snow-covered Mount Kenya, Saruni Samburu offers first-class safari experience in a totally unspoiled environment, far from the beaten tracks but very close to the wildlife.

Kalama members have coexisted with the Samburu National Reserve for over 40 years, sharing revenues and wildlife. Northern Kenya is one of Africa's last true wilderness areas. The absence of fences makes it one of the few places left that allows for the free movement of wildlife across a vast area. A red landscape dominated by acacia-grassland mosaic, with dramatic dry upland/montane forests rising from its plains, it is home to a wide diversity of species. Inhabited by pastoral tribes with rich traditional histories that are collectively striving both to protect its ecological integrity and their own livelihoods there is no better way for visitors to experience the real Africa.

Villas at Saruni Samburu

There are six luxury villas, each unique in design as well as decor and feature large open air areas with spectacular views out over Samburuland. Two large swimming pools overlook a waterhole that attract elephant, reticulated giraffe, zebra, oryx and all the species that make Kalama so special.
