Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy
Closed in November
The Sarara Treehouses are located in the Namunyak Conservancy, part of the Northern Frontier District of Kenya, and encompasses 850 000 acres of virgin wilderness. The Mathews Range of mountains forms a magnificent backdrop to these incredible treehouses.
Both the savanna plains and densely forested slopes of the mountains are home to Elephant, Leopard, Reticulated Giraffe, Wild Dogs and Kudu, the kings of the bush. This area of Kenya is Samburu country and as such is rich in it’s cultural heritage, a village visit is a fascinating immersion in history.
The camp has been built into a part of the forest at the bottom of the Uarges Mountain, a Samburu sacred mountain. With each tent raised off the ground it’s not uncommon to have wildlife walking right under your tent. The camp was built by members of the Samburu community and there are many community driven projects that your stay will contribute to.
The National Rangelands Trust is also home to the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary which, along with the Singing Wells, is well worth visiting.
The main guest area has a welcome swimming pool in front of the lounge, bar and dining room. The waterhole below the swimming pool is often visited by wildlife.
With just 8 luxury treehouse tents that are both spacious and bright the camp is intimate and prefect for a quiet safari. Six of the tents can be made up as double or twin and raised off the ground have stunning views from the deck at the front. The deck can also be used for sleeping – just ask the staff to arrange it.
The family tents are close together but not connected and this works well with children over 8 years. Each of the tents has it’s own en-suite bathroom and all the rooms have an outside shower.
