Saruni Mara is a luxurious and intimate small boutique safari lodge overlooking a secluded valley in the private Mara North Conservancy bordering the world famous Masai Mara. Its location means you have incredible wildlife on your doorstep including the Big Five but as its a private conservancy you will not see the large numbers of visitors that congregate in other parts of the Masai Mara. The conservancy is a partnership between conservationists, investors and over 800 Masai landowners. This means the local Masai receive a great income and the future for the local people, the environment and the wildlife has been secured.
The lodge offers an intimate and very stylish atmosphere and has just five elegant cottages, a lovely family villa and a private villa perfect for those looking for more privacy as it is set apart from the rest of the camp. The cottages are called the Observatory, the Love Shack, the Literary Room, the Artists Room and the Photographers Room. They are all absolutely gorgeous with beautiful antiques and lovely soft furnishings. They each have a large bed, spacious en-suite and private verandah with stunning views. The private villa and the family villas are also equally stunning. The private villas is tucked away on its own and with two bedrooms and bathrooms and is perfect for a group of friends or a family.
There is a huge amount to do at Saruni Mara. Not only do you have two game drives a day but you can also go on night game drives which are not available in the national park itself, you can book a dawn balloon trip, you can learn all about Masai Warriors and their life, you can enjoy private bush dinners and picnics, or go hiking up the Kilelioni which has stunning views over the Mara and beyond. It's great to head out early with a picnic to have by the river and to make the most of your time in the conservancy. However at camp you can also relax, visit the small spa, Maasai community boutique or sit in the library which is open fronted with a stunning view.
This is an exciting fly-in safari to Saruni lodges in Kenya's Kalama & Sera Conservancies where you can track endangered black rhino on foot before visiting the Masai Mara.
