Saruni Rhino Tracking

Inspirational safari holiday to Kenya

For adventurers and nature lovers, this thrilling journey explores Kenya's wildlife-rich wildernesses, the northern Samburu region and the famous Maasai Mara. This truly life-enriching journey perfectly combines serenity and thrill, amazing wildlife and unique landscapes, luxury and adventure, all whilst giving you the opportunity to protect an endangered species. With a stay at Saruni Samburu, begin by encountering Africa's most unusual wildlife up close in their natural habitat: the 'Samburu Special Five', rare endemic species present only in the arid North, the famously large herds of Samburu elephants and the endangered black rhino, reintroduced to Northern Kenya after 30 years. Follow this with an unforgettable experience at Saruni Rhino Camp, located in Sera Community Conservancy, in the wild, undiscovered northern frontier of Kenya. The camp offers the first rhino tracking experience in East Africa: an amazing walking safari that provides a uniquely thrilling adventure. As well as the rhino tracking you can experience game drives, waterhole sightings, bird watching, guided bush walks, bush dinners and picnics and sundowners.

Conclude the safari with a stay in Kenya's most well-known park, the Masai Mara, staying in 2 camps, Saruni Wild and Saruni Mara, giving you the opportunity to explore different areas of this incredible wilderness. From July to October the wildebeest migration will be spread across the plains but there is an abundance of wildlife year-round including all the big cats. Enjoy endless views, fire-lit meals under the vast African sky and guided game drives led by Maasai warriors.
