Goose-bumps Gone Wild
Dear <<First Name>>,

This newsletter is written and sent from a magical, exhilarating place called…. Saruni Wild. From our private tent, we see a flock of twelve, possibly more, ostriches running up and down, as if putting on a show just for us. In addition, a cornucopia of zebra and gnu, impala and Thomson gazelle, topi and warthogs parade in front of the mess tent. The young male lion we saw under a nearby tree on the way in to camp is still there, displaying his glorious mane. Other guests arrive saying “you just missed the leopard, right here on the road coming to camp!”
 
Welcome to the latest adventure of Saruni: our newly relocated, re-launched tented camp has provided some of the best “goose-bump” effects I’ve had for a long time (my wife excluded!) Simple but elegant, wild but comfortable, perfectly positioned and oh so private: only three tents, 8 guests maximum. What a privilege to be here!
 
July, however, has been for Saruni and for Kenya, much more than the opening of the new jewel in our crown. Read on for more news.... Enjoy and I hope to see you soon on safari with us (in the footsteps of Kenya’s prodigal son, Barack Obama, who is in town this weekend, the Pope – who is due in November, and many other celebrities who are gracing our roads and airports).


Happy reading!
Riccardo

Safari Feeling
How does it feel to be on safari? The answer to this question is very individual, but friend of Saruni, Tom Harding, has found a visual way to express his feeling towards Saruni Samburu: "This is quite simply the most stunning place I have ever seen. As you know I loved everything about the Samburu in terms of the culture, wildlife and landscape as well as being Saruni Samburu’s biggest fan but this has blown me away. To have the privilege of a wild dog chase next to our room last night alongside amazing food and great staff is special for anyone”. Click here to see more of his recent Samburu images…

Sarah - the Saruni Mascot!
On the ‘hot rock’ in Kalama Conservancy, one of the dominant species is the Gunther dik-dik, famous for its ‘extended nose’….Earlier this month, a baby orphan caught the eye of our guests Sarah and Kristin Radtke, mother and daughter from Australia, and it was rescued and taken care of by our Saruni Samburu team and has since become the unofficial office mascot. Here ‘Sarah’ is at 3 weeks old, named so after the guest who spotted her. Well-spotted and welcome, both Sarahs!
