Located 10 kms away from the main Saruni Mara, Saruni Wild is down in a valley within the Mara North Conservancy. With only three tents and no electricity it is a simple bushcamp which works perfectly in conjunction with a stay at the much more permanent Saruni Mara. In July 2015, Saruni Wild relocates to a new location, much further south, closer to the Mara North airstrip. We understand the new location provides a more wildlife-rich experience, while preserving the intimacy and smallness of the original location, and still with only three tents. As soon as we have a chance to visit, we'll post our update here.
Our view of Saruni Wild
Saruni Wild is one of the most remote camps in the Mara and we loved is simplicity. Though larger and with more structure than a fly-camp, its lack of electricity gives it that kind of feel and it works really well in combination with a longer stay at the more established Saruni Mara. The result would be a really varied experience and for those looking for a touch of adventure we think this is a really fun option.
