Saruni Mara and Saruni Wild Mara North Conservancy, Masai Mara, Kenya

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.

Saruni Wild is a small tented camp also in Mara North.

Saruni Mara and Saruni Wild


Saruni Mara 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.

All the villas are beautifully appointed, enjoy spacious ensuite bathrooms and benefit from superb views. 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.

Saruni Wild combines all the necessary comforts with the style of a classic tented camp. There are just two luxury double tents and a luxury family tent accommodating a family of four.Tents enjoy ensuite hot water showers and flushing loos and a wonderful verandah. 


There is a huge amount to do and see in the Mara.We recommend 3 nights as a minimum if at all possible to give you the best chance of seeing what the area has to offer.

Not only do you have two game drives a day in custom 4x4 vehicles, but you can also go on night game drives which are not available in the national park itself.  You can learn all about Masai Warriors and their life, you can enjoy private bush dinners and picnics,  walk the mountain trails for stunning views over the Mara and beyond or perhaps you would like to  book a dawn balloon trip (additional cost). . 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. At camp you can relax, visit the small spa, Maasai community boutique or sit in the library which is open fronted with a stunning view.
