This is a superb fly-in safari combination - three nights in the private Kalama Conservancy bordering Samburu and three nights in the private Mara North Conservancy bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve. With both lodges being in private conservancies guests can enjoy a range of activities from 4x4 safari, walking and night drives to glorious sundowners and picnics. Bush suppers are a highlight.
The lodges contrast beautifully. Saruni Samburu is architecturally striking, perched high on the red rocks above Samburu, with breathtaking views from all the chic villas and public areas. Saruni Mara feels far more organic, nestled in a wooded valley with individual luxury thatched cottages fanning out from the main mess area with its wonderful fire place and lofty roof.
Please note: guests in the Mara have the choice of staying at either Saruni Mara or mobile camp Saruni Wild - please let us know your preference.
This safari stays at private conservancies which work in partnership with the local community to safeguard the wild and its wildlife. Kalama is a critical migratory corridor between northern and southern conservation areas. Mara North is one of the largest community and private sector owned conservancies in the world and has one of the lowest tourist and vehicle densities in the ecosystem due to managed volume and strict land-use plans (350 acres to 1 guest). Your stay directly helps to conserve these important habitats and helps the local community. In addition, the Real World Conservation Trust (formerly Real Africa Trust) supports the work of the Sheldrick Trust, donating over $20,000 in 2017 following Explorers against Extinction fundraising.Plan My Journey Speak To Us
