Sarara
Sarara accommodation is in 5 spacious tents, each with flush lavatories and open air showers. Gas lamps provide lighting in each tent. A natural rock swimming pool overlooks a wildlife waterhole frequently visited. Sarara is found within the 75,000 hectares Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust which lies folded around the southern corner of Mathews Mountain range of northern Kenya. This is home to the proud Samburu people, a group of semi-nomadic pastoralists who have for long shown tolerance for the wildlife that co-exists alongside their cattle. The Trust was set up in 1995 specifically to promote wildlife conservation and to assist the local community to benefit from tourism, in return for protecting the wildlife species living on their land. In addition to the usual viewing of big game, the main focus of activities on Namunyak are escorted bush walks with our expert local field scouts, shared game drives in custom built 4-wheel-drive vehicles, hiking into the Mathews forest, climbing to the top of Lolokwe mountain with donkeys, fly camping safaris with camels along the wide sand ‘luggas’ and seasonal visits to the Samburu Singing wells.

Ol Malo
Ol Malo, the place of the Greater Kudu, is nestled into a rugged escarpment on the northern edge of Laikipia plateau. It is an ancient land inhabited by wildlife and peoples of a time long ago, undisturbed and living by the rhythm of nature. To stay at Ol Malo is to live by a different rhythm - wake up to see the mind-blowing sunrise, framing the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya. Celebrate the new day with a dawn ride into the wilderness while keeping the tempo by the roll of the camel’s stride. Visit the colourful Samburu nomads of the North and in the cooler hours of the day, enjoy a game drive in the sanctuary and with the dying sun, sink into the waters of the pool. At night luxuriate in the peace and comfort of Ol Malo and tune into the magical sounds of wild Africa under an ancient starscape.
