Saruni Rhino

Saruni Rhino is a unique, 4 “bandas” (stone cottages) camp located in the large and remote Sera Conservancy, in the wild, undiscovered northern frontier of Kenya. It is little over 1.5 hours’ drive from its Sister Saruni Samburu lodge in nearby Kalama Conservancy. It is unique not only for the unforgettable, raw beauty of its habitat, but because, as the name says, it is the gateway to an extraordinary place: the rhino sanctuary where black rhinos have been successfully re-introduced and are guarded by the community.

The camp offers several diverse experiences. One is the first on-foot black rhino tracking experience in East Africa. This incredible walking safari provides a thrilling adventure and the opportunity for guests to actively contribute to the protection of this iconic species. But it is not all about the rhinos. Herds of elephants populate this vast landscape, there is amazing birdwatching, and cultural experiences with the “singing wells”. Northern Kenya is a largely unexplored and uninhabited expanse of wild beauty rich in colour and experiences.
