Saruni Mara

Located inside the Masai-owned private Mara North Conservancy, Saruni Camp is an eco-friendly, boutique safari lodge bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve. With wide-open game plains to the south and forest to the north, guests have the opportunity to walk in lush forest looking for Colobus and Sykes monkeys, as well as following the big game on the plains below.

Offering accommodation for only 14 guests in one family villa and five cottages, Saruni is set in a remote valley of forests and hills, overlooking the open savannas. Each of the cottages is furnished with colonial antiques, Persian carpets and African art.

Unique features include canvas fronts which can be opened to offer you an amazing 'shower with a view' and large verandas overlooking a nearby watering hole. Saruni also offers a private spa treatment centre, the 'Masai Well-Being Space' to provide guests with professional massages and spa treatments.

If I could give Saruni Mara 17 points out of the 5 I would happily do so. Awesome beyond all expectations. From Cecilia (Gen Mgr) to Dixon (gold medal tour guide - 1 of only 10 such in Kenya) make the trip something never ever to be forgotten
