Unique Samburu | 2 Nights
You arrive at Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport where a professional driver-guide transfers you to nearby Wilson Airport for a scheduled flight to Samburu National Reserve. A guide meets you at the airstrip and drives you to Saruni Samburu, tucked into panoramic mountains on the edge of the reserve. Accommodation is elegant and very comfortable and you have amazing views of a sprawling and unspoilt wilderness. A complementary head and neck massage sets the tone perfectly, and you enjoy a mix of activities ranging from game drives and walks to cultural tours, riverside picnics and displays of Samburu song and dance.
Tracking Rhinos on foot Samburu for 2 Nights
Samburu guides accompany you as you make your way to Saruni Rhino, an intimate tented camp set in a private wildlife reserve and one of the few places in Kenya – or indeed Africa – where you can still track black rhino on foot. There is also a nearby rhino sanctuary and an elephant orphanage to visit as well as game drives to go on and bird watching to enjoy – the sight of thousands of sand grouse drinking is one to remember. And for a unique cultural experience, your guide will take you to the Singing Wells where local herdsmen call their cattle to drink through songs that are apparently recognizable only by their own cattle.
Explore the Masai Mara | 3 Nights
It is about a 90-minute flight from the Samburu airstrip to the Masai Mara, enabling you to change environments quickly and comfortably. Contiguous with the Serengeti, the Masai Mara is most famous for its seasonal Wildebeest Migration with the bulk of the animals passing through between the end of June and the beginning of November. It is a time of dramatic encounters between the wildebeest and their predators – lions, leopards, wild dogs and spotted hyenas – but such is the depth of wildlife in the Mara that it remains a highly rewarding destination at any time of year. Game drives with Maasai guides take you into the heart of the action and there are also exciting bush walks to go on as well as the chance to book an optional hot-air balloon flight over the savannah; it is a pre-dawn start and you are rewarded with a well-deserved champagne breakfast.
Visit the rhino sanctuary on the way to the airstrip and once again admire the hippos and the crocodiles of the Mara River. Transfer to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport with Saruni driver and vehicle. Depending on the time of your international flight, stop at the Talisman or Carnivore restaurant for dinner.
Saruni Samburu’s six luxury villas are open and spacious, heralding spectacular views over Kenya’s Northern Frontier District and Mount Kenya in the distance. The lodge is revered for its innovative, eco-chic architecture and interesting design and décor. With our iconic landscapes, our stunning and abundant wildlife, our traditional culture, our open savannahs, our elegant and intimate lodges, our warm hospitality, at Saruni we look forward to have you again on safari with us. It is a safari that enriches your life, an adventure that makes up for any physical and emotional lockdown and and a spiritual journey where Mother Africa brings out the best in each of us. In the meanwhile, we have taken all the precautions to keep ourselves, our communities and our guests safe. We think of you. Wee miss you. And hopefully see you soon!
Saruni Mara, Masai Mara Lodge
Saruni Mara is nestled into the secluded hills of the Mara North Conservancy, with the wide open game plains to the south and lush forest to the north. Guests can explore the world renowned Mara-Serengeti ecosystem in complete, uninterrupted exclusivity in this private and protected conservancy.
One of the most remarkable aspects of a safari at Saruni Mara is the fantastic guiding experience. Guests are guided by Maasai warriors, who eagerly share their ancient customs and local knowledge of the landscape and wildlife. Over and above being professionally qualified, our guides are members of the Maasai tribe who are the proud custodians of this incredible wilderness, and who have known this area as their home for centuries.
