Room types at Sarara
Sarara has six luxury tents, each positioned to maximise the stunning views of the Mathews Range of mountains and the animal watering hole. Preserving the romance of the tented camp, these tents are spacious and high ceilinged, with plenty of cupboard space, electric lighting and 24 hour hot and cold running water. There is an outdoor bathroom offering a superb view of the hills from the shower. But there is also an indoor toilet and sink at the back of the tent for midnight visits. Each tent has its own private terrace with table and chairs and morning coffee and tea are brought to you so that you can wake up gazing out over the mountains.
Activities at Sarara
Day and Night Game drives
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. Elephant, buffalo, giraffe, gerenuk, impala and warthogs are now regularly seen on our game drives and bush walks and are very much on the increase in numbers.Unusual sightings include striped hyena, aardwolf, civet cat, African wild cat, greater kudu, grevy zebra and cheetah.
Early morning game drives are a good time for seeing giraffe, kudu, and elephants. Starting off early, the guides can have you back in time for breakfast at camp or make up a picnic breakfast for you out in the bush.
The night game drive takes you out into the bush to search for the nocturnal star of sarara, the leopard. Leopard sightings are currently running at around 80% for guests staying three nights.
Our Samburu naturalist guides can take you out for an early morning walk through the bush to take an up close and personal look at the glorious flora and fauna surrounding the camp. If you wish, we can set up breakfast for you on a hilltop or in a dry river bed.
