Set in 850,000 acres of Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trusts, Sarara Camp offers the perfect platform to explore this vast wilderness. Nestled on the edge of the Matthews mountain range in Northern Kenya, Sarara – meaning ‘meeting place’ – captures the luxury and adventure you can find here. With just six tented suites and the private Loimugi House this camp offers the perfect family friendly getaway into the beautiful culture and wildlife you will find in this successful conservation story that is Namunyak.
Each of Sarara’s luxury tents is positioned to maximise the stunning views of the Mathews Range of mountains and the animal watering hole. These tents are spacious and high ceilinged, with plenty of cupboard space, electric lighting and 24 hour hot and cold running water. Sarara has established itself as one of the 'hot spots' for quality leopard viewing in Africa and equally, for close-up sightings of the normally extremely shy lesser kudu antelope. The African wild dogs are frequently encountered in the Sarara valley too.
This is home of the proud Samburu tribes people, a group of semi-nomadic pastoralists who have long shown tolerance for the wildlife that co-exists alongside their cattle.
The conservation work carried out by the Namunyak Trust to date has been hugely successful. As a result of the severe ivory poaching crisis of the 70’s and early 80’s there were no recorded elephants remaining in the Mathews Ranges by 1985. Today, several thousand elephants are living and breeding peacefully in the southern Mathews Range area, as well as many other animals calling this area home.
