Safari Activities & Experiences

Nothing beats the excitement of a safari in Samburu, as there is so much to see and do in this exciting landscape. Sasaab is a place where opportunities for adventure in the wilderness abound. From thrilling games drives to see species unique to the area, to authentic cultural experiences and adrenalin filled fun, there’s something for everyone. Enjoy cook-out bush breakfasts in Samburu National Reserve and encounter the majestic herds of elephants for which Samburu is renowned. Learn about the myriad of birdlife on a nature walk with your guide and take in the incredible scenery from the top of ‘sundowner rock’, a magical place where you can watch the sun sink low and contemplate your safari sightings of the day. Whether you fly into Sasaab’s airstrip or drive in by vehicle, listen out for the tinkling of bells as you make you way to the lodge and you might glimpse a caravan of camels on the move through the bush. It is not uncommon to encounter Samburu herdsmen shepherding their livestock through the bush in Westgate Conservancy. This is just one of many fascinating insights into this unique culture that a safari in Samburu provides.
