Perfectly positioned on a rocky inselberg (a rocky hill that rises abruptly from an otherwise flat plain) in the very exclusive and remote Kalama Conservancy is Saruni Samburu. The conservancy lies directly North of the Samburu National Reserve and has incredible views out over the bush and Mount Kenya to the South.
Guests arrive up the back of the kopje and the full view is hidden until the last moment when the vista opens up before you to take your breath away! Kudu House, the open main lounge and dining area, is split into two levels with a very comfortable lounge area for relaxing during the day. A telescope is positioned on the deck for stargazing at night which the staff will be happy to help you with. Meals are served at the communal dining table and hosted by the camps management.
An infinity swimming pool is close to the main area and has a dramatic drop off with excellent views as well. The second swimming pool is the highest point of the lodge and views from here will leave you speechless. An extensive therapy menu at the spa is well worth the treat!
Villas and Suites
There are 10 villa suites at Saruni Samburu and all differ slightly in size and design. (Some of these can be quite a distance from the main area so be sure to tell us if this will be a problem for you.)
The Family Villas each have two double or twin en-suite rooms on either side of a central lounge area. The Family and Single Villas are divided into completely separate Standard Villas and are also very private. Two large Individual Villas can be utilized for a family of 3 as well as honeymoon villas.
All the rooms are very spacious and bright with twin or double beds, extensive decks and the en-suite bathrooms have both indoor and outside showers and complimentary toiletries.
