Sarara Camp

Samburu National Reserve, Kenya


In the remote Samburu lands of northern Kenya, the peaks of the Mathews Range surge toward the sky, studded with forests of cycads and juniper and surrounded by vast stretches of savanna. Against this primordial backdrop, a solitary cluster of tents sits perched on a hill, their thatched roofs seeming to blend with the bush to become part of the land itself. This is Sarara, a lodge both intimate and limitless, nestled within the pristine expanse of the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy


Sarara Camp is situated on 75,000 acres of Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust land. It is mostly dry plains, but the Sarara River flows through, and is flanked by the Mathews Ranges, giving it a truly stunning setting and a good range of habitat.

The six spacious tented suites of Sarara all incorporate natural materials and are situated to maximize the dramatic views of the bush and mountains. Combining the romance of a tented camp with modern amenities, each canvas tent hangs beneath a thatch roof and is beautifully appointed with fine linens and furnishings, an indoor toilet, and a private veranda. Designed to accommodate larger groups, a family cottage is also available and features two separate bedroom tents, a plunge pool, and an upstairs deck.


  • Fly camping safaris with camels along the wide sand “luggas”
  • Shared game drives in custom built, open 4x4 vehicles with knowledgeable guides
  • Hiking into the Mathews forest
  • Bush picnics and sundowners

At A Glimpse

Visit Sarara Camp for the experience of a lifetime, take a dip in the lodge’s swimming pool and you may find yourself eye to eye with an elephant or two—or more. Get acquainted with the Samburu people on bush walks and visits to nearby villages. During the dry season, enjoy a rare opportunity to witness the singing wells, an authentic tribal tradition.
