Saruni Mara- The only small boutique lodge in the Mara


Couples, Families & Honeymoons

One of Kenya's most unique safari lodges and as the only small boutique lodge in the Mara, Saruni Mara is undeniably charming.

Five elegant cottages, one family villa and one private villa make up this wonderful family friendly space, which lies in the Mara North Conservancy.

This exclusive and private wildlife area bordering the world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve is just a 40 minute game drive away from the nearest airstrip. It is the perfect place for both first timers to Kenya or people who are experienced travellers of the country.

Your access to this private and protected area for wildlife is brought to life with Maasai warriors who will guide you throughout your stay. Imparting wisdom that goes back centuries in regards to animals and habitats, these fascinating people will ensure you’ll go home feeling connected to Kenya. 

Enjoy private safaris with a professional guide and a tracker. Go to the hot spots of the Mara, and also see the secret spots where there will be no other safari vehicles. Have opportunities to see, smell, and touch your surroundings.

You can go on night drives in the conservancy, go on bush walks, visit a local Masai market, go on a hot air balloon ride, plus much more.

Relaxation wise, make use of the first class wellbeing space, where you can treat yourself to a massage, and in the evenings, tuck into gourmet Italian food made by expert chefs in the Main Lodge.

The lodge

Saruni Mara offers unrivalled privacy in undisturbed surroundings. Five guest cottages, all individually decorated, have a distinctive theme and character. A particular favourite with guests is the Love Shack, the lodge’s honeymoon suite, which is located in a secluded spot of the property, while providing dramatic views and romantic interiors. All cottages are decorated according to their names, and are perfect for couples. With breezy verandas featuring fantastic views, modern amenities, and organic toiletries, the rooms feel fantastically luxurious. 

Nyati House is a unique private wilderness home, located in its own secluded valley which is a five minute drive away from the main property. Complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge, dining room, kitchen, and a large veranda, the house is perfect for a group or family who want to experience the Masai Mara on their own schedule. Nyati House also benefits from having its own safari vehicle, guide, and garden. 


Guests can embark on a range of outdoor activities, from night game drives to cultural visits.


Gourmet Italian food is served at the restaurant, and bush meals can be arranged for breakfast and starlit dinners. 

Why Wayfairer

Saruni Mara actively engages in responsible tourism and conservation work. The company is among the founding members of Mara North Conservancy and is part of Northern Rangelands Trust. These are two leading community-owned wildlife conservancies in Kenya, which develop the vital connection between communities and conservation.
