Top Choice: Lonely Planet's 'breathtaking camp' - Saruni Mara
That’s how Lonely Planet has described Saruni Mara in its new 2015 guide to Kenya. With a setting in ‘animal-packed, forested hills’ that is ‘different to most other camps’, we are considered a ‘Top Choice’ in the Masai Mara. The printed edition is due out later this year; however, the online review is available now.

Going the 'extra mile' at Kenya's south coast
If ever you needed another reason to travel to Diani beach on Kenya’s stunning south coast, then here it is. Ukunda Aerodrome in Diani, the primary airfield used by travelling coastal residents and safari-going tourists alike, will soon benefit from a long-awaited extended runway and a spanking new terminal building, as confirmed by The Kenya Airport Authority (KAA).  The extension of the runway to an overall length of 2 kilometres will see a major boost to the coast’s tourism infrastructure, as its current length of 1.1 kilometres restricts types and sizes of planes able to land.

Rumour has it that it’s only a matter of time before scheduled flights to and from Kenya’s main aviation gateway, Jomo Kenyatta International, will be launched. Read news item in full on Atta Travel website
Saruni Ocean update
Staying in the Diani neighbourhood, it’s Kaskazi time at Msambweni. The seasonal wind that crosses the Indian Ocean is reaching our beach property Saruni Ocean refreshing this amazing secluded part of the Kenya south coast, near the border with Tanzania. The sea is particularly transparent and sea-weed free, snorkelling and diving are at their best. The cuisine offered at Saruni Ocean is winning praise from guests and local residents alike. The glistening infinity pool awaits…
Alive & Kicking: 'Nashipai' spotted by Saruni Guide
We are delighted that Saruni Samburu’s Head Guide Chris Letur was able to report recently that Nashipai the lioness was alive and well in Samburu National Reserve. As part of the Ewaso Lions Lion Watch programme in which local ‘Lion Watch’ Guides collect important lion data whilst on game drives, Nashipai had not been seen for a while causing some concern.  Photos appearing on the Ewaso Lions Facebook page show she’s clearly doing fine. Well spotted Chris!
