Saruni Samburu: Kenya's Leading Safari Lodge
Saruni has been nominated for a World Travel Award in the category of Kenya's Leading Safari Lodge!

Saruni Samburu is acclaimed as one of the most innovative lodges in East Africa. Set in one of the most spectacular and pristine wildernesses in Kenya, Kalama Conservancy, it supports the community and protects 200,000 acres of untouched wilderness. Safaris at Saruni Samburu have a rare and authentic cultural element: the close relationship with the local Samburu people and having warriors guide you throughout your stay, sharing their ancient wisdom and knowledge of the landscape and the wildlife, is a truly life-enriching experience.

Training the Saruni guides
Pietro Luraschi, the guiding expert, has been training our guides at Saruni Mara and Saruni Samburu for the last two months. The training focused on giving a wider base of scientific knowledge to compliment their specific and unique local knowledge, and enhancing the communication of this to create exciting and memorable experiences for guests.
Pietro's feedback has left us all with a fantastic feeling of anticipation for the season ahead:

“Training the Saruni guides both in Mara and in Samburu is always great. You are confronted with two of the most impressive tribes in East Africa, tribes that have always been living along wild animals in these amazing places. Their local knowledge is impressive – every plant you see has a purpose, every corner a story.
The training was intense, with daily lectures and drives to apply theory to practice. The guides responded enthusiastically, really willing to learn more and trying with all their energy to improve. That’s what makes me happy!
Being more proactive then reactive is what I pushed them to, and they have been amazing, reading animals and situations sometimes in an almost supernatural way.”
Nyati House: experience the Mara in total exclusivity
Nyati House is Saruni Mara’s Private Villa, one of the few private villas available in the Masai Mara, which opened for exclusive bookings earlier this year. Guests have the  opportunity to experience the Masai Mara in seclusion from the comfort of their own wilderness home.

Riccardo on Kenyan Tourism on the BBC

He also confirmed that Saruni Ocean will be opening at the end of this year. Listen to the interview here.
Beautiful photography portfolio by Dirk Rees
Renowned photographer, Dirk Rees, visited Saruni Samburu recently. As promised, here are a few of our favourite photographs he took and has kindly shared with us. Dirk has wonderfully captured the ancient soul of the Samburu people and landscape in his series of photographs. He will be entering his photographs in various international photography competitions, and is putting together an amazing portfolio of African tribes. Enjoy!
New East African Tourist Visa
Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda have recently forged an agreement to waiver visa re-entry fees if travelling between the three countries. A tourist can now obtain an East African Tourist Visa for $100, which allows for multiple entries into the three countries within the validity period of three months. This is an exciting and important step in promoting tourism to East Africa.
