So, you think a safari in Kenya is all about the wildlife spotted on a game drive and an Instagram moment? Then have another think. Whilst this is initially the main ‘draw’ for many, there is so much more to see, do and experience. Making the most of the stunning landscape and pristine wildernesses on our doorstep in two iconic, yet different eco-systems, there is a diverse array of activities on offer for all ages and all interests. We are big fans of Saruni who own a collection of deluxe, intimate safari lodges in Kenya’s private conservancies.
Guests of Saruni Samburu can enjoy swimming pools, Photographic Hide, mountain trekking excursion, caves with rock art, cultural village visit.
Saruni Rhino guests can track the endangered black rhino on foot, observe semi-nomadic pastoralists watering their herds singing traditional songs (the Singing Wells), hang out at the camp’s waterhole, walk along the dry river bed.
It’s just as activity-filled at Saruni Mara & Saruni Wild in the Mara – have a massage at the Wellbeing Space, dine in the bush under the stars, drive to the highest point of the Mara for scenic sundowners, balloon rides over the Great Migration.
THE ‘HOT ROCK’ DIARIES
We’ve known since its inception in 2008 that Saruni Samburu is a special and unique place. It’s enough to read the Trip Advisor reviews to know that over 500 of you feel the same way. However, a recent ‘vlog’ (that’s a video blog for the ‘tech-timid’), by guests Dave & Tracy Mani of their time spent at Saruni Samburu up on the Hot Rock in Kalama Conservancy, gives the viewer a super-detailed overview across 30 minutes of visually-stunning video diary. Entitled “Unforgettable Safari Experience in Samburu Kenya”, it’s already had over 37,000 views on You Tube! Watch the video above, sit back, relax and enjoy!
