Sasaab is a special place - a beautiful and stylish tented lodge perched on a rocky ledge above the Ewaso Nyiro river around 10 kilometres outside the Samburu main reserve, close to Buffalo Springs.
The heart of the reserve itself can be reached within a 30 minute game drive from the lodge, while elephants can be seen coming to drink at the river throughout the seasons.
The lodge's location feels tucked away and secluded and enables guests to enjoy a range of activities including camel safaris, walking and cultural interaction.
There are 9 cottages. Each individual cottage is designed to offer majestic views of the landscape and offer a cooling retreat from the African heat. The airy rooms with four poster beds, enormous, open-air bathrooms and private plunge pools, make for a completely invigorating experience. Sasaab also has a main swimming pool, built on the hillside overlooking the river. We recommend families book the family suite, rooms 8-9, which has a shared central area and can be taken as an exclusive villa, with separate access. Extra beds can also be added, subject to availability. All guests enjoy full-board during their stay, which includes all meals and most drinks, excluding champagne and specially imported wines and spirits. Baby-sitters are available and special meals are by prior arrangement. Children are welcome at Sasaab and under threes stay free.There is a lovely spa - all treatments use Liz Earle skin care products and an assortment of natural Kenyan ingredients.
Game drives into the main reserve, walking and star gazing are the main activities on offer. Samburu guides can lead you on a wonderful walk along the river around the lodge.
