Kenya Laikipia Sarara family safari

Sarara Camp

Staggering views, deep involvement with the local communities, and a pioneering elephant sanctuary

Kenya Laikipia Sarara family safari
Sarara Camp

Within the lands of the Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust in Kenya’s northern frontier, Sarara is a truly unique camp indeed.

Its blend of experiential tourism, and community and conservation focus make it an undisputed forerunner in the quest to create long-term sustainability for Kenya’s cultural and national heritage.

Blending seamlessly into the local environment, Sarara has 6 tents, and one two-bedroomed private house with its own pool and sitting/dining area. Meals are taken communally, but private dining is available on request. 

It’s hard to picture a destination more suited to families looking for an off-the-beaten-track, thought-provoking and soul-stirring experience in Africa. The huge game-filled grasslands of the Masai Mara and the like can wait, while the dramatic Mathews Mountain range seen from the Namunyak conservancy take centre stage.

This is a place to immerse yourselves in learning about Samburu culture, take in the spectacular views that literally stretch for hundreds of miles, go on a guided camel walk, visit the unmissable Reteti Elephant Sanctuary and horse ride with members of the local communities; seeing giraffes, elephants and all manner of wildlife, flora and fauna.

We recommend a slow start to the day with tea on your deck taking in the more-often-than-not stunning sunrise. Namunyak means ‘place of peace’ in the local Samburu dialect, and this it surely is.

Why we love it
