Located in the Northern Frontier District of Kenya is the Namunyak Conservancy and Sarara Camp. This 850 000 acre conservancy is one of the last pristine wilderness areas to be found in Africa. Established in 1995 it is one of the oldest community owned conservancies in East Africa.
This area of Kenya is home to the Samburu people, it is remote with incredible landscapes of mountains, plains and age old traditions. Meaning “meeting place” Sarara is named after the Singing Wells where the local tribes people water their cattle during the dry seasons.
The main guest area of Sarara Camp has been beautifully designed with local materials around the shapes and forms of the rocky cliff face. Below the main lounge and dining area is an infinity pool – most welcome in the hotter months – and below the pool is a waterhole that is very popular with Elephants and other wildlife.
If you are planning on more than 3 nights here then the staff at Sarara will arrange a sleep out in a dry river bed, a safari event that is simply spectacular, do not miss out on this. Advance booking is necessary. Children of all ages are welcome at the camp.
There are 6 very spacious luxury tented chalets at Sarara that have been carefully located for the incredible views of the Mathews Range and the waterhole. With high ceilings, ample space in the room and electricity they are a pleasure to be in. Each room has it’s own outdoor bathroom and a deck at the front from which to enjoy the magnificent views.
