Saruni Rhino is a based in the remote and pristine Sera Community Conservancy in North West Kenya. Established in 2001 the conservancy is one of the only places in Kenya where you can track the endangered Black Rhino on foot. Located on the banks of the Kauro River between some local palms that gives the camp a stunning atmosphere.
Access to the camp is not easy, flying in can result in a long game drive to camp (quite well worth it) and driving from Nairobi is a fascinating experience. This part of rural Kenya will amaze you with the cultural differences we experience from women who walk miles for fresh water to local herdsmen with their goats and cattle. It’s an education into the daily lives of the Samburu people.
While the river itself is seasonal there is a permanent waterhole in front of the camp that is often frequented by a wide diversity of animals, especially Elephant. A swimming pool is available for the hotter parts of the day.
There are two banda’s on either side of the main area at Saruni Wild with a family banda that has been built at the far end of the camp. The two closest to the main area are similar in style with a low stone wall and covered with thatch. While simply furnished they are very comfortable with beds draped in mosquito nets and bright carpets on the floor. The open front ensures a breeze at night and there is a standing fan.
Both these rooms have a deck out the front. The family banda has a central lounge with the rooms leading off to either side. Both rooms have a double bed and spacious en-suite bathroom.
