• Location: Kenya, Masai Mara
  • Type of Accommodation: Tented Camp
  • Comfort Level: Comfortable


Situated in a picturesque forest at the border of the Lemek and Mara North private conservancies, this Hemingway-style tented camp is a tranquil bush retreat ideal for those yearning to reconnect with nature. The combination of just three tents, exclusive-use 4x4 access and expert Maasai guides makes for a truly memorable African safari.

The area has a thriving resident population of elephant, giraffe, buffalo as well as leopard and classic Masai Mara plains game. Game viewing in the Mara North and Lemek Conservancies rivals that of Masai Mara National Park with the bonus that you are unlikely to see any other vehicles, and night drives are permitted which could lead to encounters with elusive species such as genet and white-tailed mongoose.

Track animals and learn specialised bush skills passed down from generations of Maasai warriors. Walking safaris individually tailored to your interests and fitness level take you through the forests, springs and mountains of this pristine wilderness.

Traveller Reviews

  • We didn't know what to expect of our safari. We were unsure how close we would get to the animals and even as to what we would see. On collection from the Mara airport, and within 10 minutes we were at a hippo pool watching a croc trying to get to a baby Hippo! And from there things just got better. It was way beyond our expectations. I feel we were really spoilt in Kenya as our guides were able to get us to within 2 metres of lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffe, in fact all game. And on the guides, we had two Masai guides (John and Coney) who were absolutely fantastic. They provided us with some amazing memories and were so determined and persistent in locating animals. On one night we were taken to dinner at a camp site (in the middle of the Mara) and our guides organised for the local Masai to do a Masai tribal dance for us which was quite spectacular in front of a fire. The camp itself is perfect and we would highly recommend this type of accommodation over the larger more touristy lodges. We only had 2 other guests staying at the time we were at Saruni and it was so relaxing and the perfect way to unwind. The rooms and dining areas were perfectly furnished and themed and the scenery was beautiful. The service was fantastic and very personalised and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely return to this camp.

"Located in a peaceful valley in a conservancy, Saruni wild offers a classic and exclusive safari experience. Some highlights are the guided bush walks with the Masai and night game drives. Dinners enjoyed under the African night sky are delicious and then some relaxation at the camp fire to absorb the days wildlife sightings – this is how a safari should be!"
