Sarara Tented camp

This Fly-in safari package puts together 4 wonderful days at the Sarara Luxury Camp located in the northern frontier of Kenya, Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy which includes the entire Mathews Range.

Your adventure begins with a transfer to Wilson airport Nairobi for your scheduled flight to Kalama airstrip (Northern Samburu). Upon arrival, a Sarara Camp driver guide will meet you and transfer you to Sarara Camp (1.5 hours road transfer).

For many, Sarara Camp is considered the most beautiful and spectacular of all the community-based lodges in northern Kenya. Nestled amongst the southern foothills of the fabled Mathews mountain range, directly beneath Warges peak (8,500’), Sarara Camp was the brainchild of Piers Bastard (a third generation Kenyan of farming stock).

Piers and his Kenyan born wife Hilary; your hosts built this stunning camp in 1997 specifically to help the Namunyak community to benefit from wildlife conservation. 

Not only is this remote and dramatic landscape home to the Samburu pastoralists but also animals like elephant, leopard, wild dog, hyena, buffalo and reticulated giraffe – most of which can be seen without even leaving the camp as they come to drink at Sarara’s resident waterhole.

A Typical Day at Sarara

Early mornings at Sarara can only be described as truly spectacular!  Tea or coffee and home baked cookies will be served on your veranda deck by staff from the local community as the sun rises … incredible hues of pink and crimson red pouring over the eastern horizon.

This will be followed by a fascinating stroll along the wide, sandy Sarara ‘lugga’.  Accompanied by armed local field scouts who were born and raised in the area, guests may hope to find elephant, gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, the elegant lesser kudu plus an enormous variety of birds before breakfast.

A very special treat would be to encounter our resident pack of up to 70 African wild dogs who frequently den and hunt close to camp. A traditional safari breakfast cooked out in the middle of the bush sets the tone for the remainder of the morning.

At around 10.00 a.m. guests may be interested in visiting the famous ‘Sarara Singing Wells’. Here, Samburu tribes people bring their cattle and goats to water on a daily basis. Stripped naked, the muscular warriors chant traditional Samburu songs as they pass water up in a human chain.

All are welcome to mix and mingle but we respectfully ask that guests do not take any photographs as this changes these proud nomads uncomplicated lifestyle forever.

By mid-morning the sun is getting hot. A return to camp and a dive into the clear natural rock swimming pool to cool off. Then relax and enjoy a buffet lunch.

With luck a number of elephant will come to mud bath in the waterhole just a few metres in front of your tents. While away the afternoon by taking a nap or writing up a memory-filled safari journal.

As the heat dissipates, it is time to venture out once more. This could be either a fascinating game drive in specially prepared 4×4 vehicles or a camel ride. Leopard abound in the area and frequently seen. As the sun sets, it is time for cocktails and an incredible bush dinner under the twinkling stars.

Optional activities include an overnight fly camping outing with camels, or an amazing walk high up into the indigenous rain forest of the Mathews range.
