Saruni Rhino: video gallery


Saruni Rhino: picture gallery


At Saruni Rhino you can track black rhinos on foot.
You get here after a 2-hour transfer from Saruni Samburu…
…passing northern Kenya's spectacular scenery en route (this is the sacred Ol Olokwe).
On arrival, you'll find Saruni Rhino is built in the shade of doum palms...
...overlooking the usually dry bed…
…or 'lugga' of the Kauro River...
... where if you are lucky you may see wild dog.
The smaller of the two banda's ...
... has a swinging day bed outside …
…and contains a double bed…
…and clothes-storage space.
The bathroom has twin basins…
…a combined shower and flush toilet…
…and good toiletries.
The larger of the two bandas is at the western end of the small camp, this has a separate shower and toilet ...
…connected to the bedroom banda by a short corridor beneath the palms.
Inside you'll find a large bed and sofa…
…and enough space for further beds if a family or group are staying.
The newly added family banda is very comfortable...
with a wide veranda with seating at one end ...
and a table and chairs at the other.
Inside is a comfortable lounge...
with a double room leading from each side.
Each room has its own bathroom...
and a spacious shower.
Saruni Rhino's main lounge area has comfortable sofas...
… a rustic, communal dining area…
...and a bar area where you can enjoy a drink…
...and learn about the Sera Conservancy from one of the guides.
Saruni Rhino recently added a swimming pool - ideal for those hot afternoons.
Meals are often served in the dry riverbed.
…and we found the meals appetising and well prepared considering the remote location.
Activities usually begin in one of the Saruni safari vehicles...
... once you reach the rhino area you will spend most of your time walking through the bush...
...trying to stand silently, and peering at them through the thorns…
…waiting for the unforgettable moment when one appears.
