Saruni Samburu

In the heart of the Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy, Saruni Samburu is a luxury safari lodge which provides the perfect springboard for you to indulge in and discover the beauty of the African Savannah. Tucked away in the crucial migratory corridor of the northern and southern conservation areas, it’s the perfect spot to discover this beautiful region of Kenya. Spend your days at Saruni Samburu catching glimpses of amazing wildlife, before returning to one of the six lavish villas where you’ll drift off into a peaceful slumber, accompanied by the soothing soundtrack of the savannah.


Just shy of the northern border of the Samburu National Reserve and a 40-minute drive from Kalama Airstrip, Samburu is one of Africa’s last surviving true wildernesses and one of the best spots to feast your eyes on the ‘Big Five’. With no fences in the area, a colorful blend of Samburu culture and one of the most densely populated areas of different species, Saruni Samburu puts you in prime position to uncover this enchanting region of Kenya.

Your Room

All six of the villas are luxuriously unique in their own way. The three single villas are a dream come true for honeymooners with their own private verandas and sumptuous double beds, whilst the three family villas give way to beautiful uninterrupted views and feature spacious bedrooms as well as sitting and dining areas perfect for entertaining. No matter what you’re looking for, these villas provide the perfect exclusive experience for everyone.
