Overlooked by the majestic Matthews mountain range, Sarara’s camp provides a fantastic platform at which to experience its surrounding wildlife conservancy. Next to the main tented camp is also a two-bedroom family unit, Sarara House, which includes its own sitting room, dining area and beautiful plunge pool.
The camp’s waterhole is frequented by an array of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, kudu, impala, leopard, wild dog and rare reticulated giraffe. Sarara House, meanwhile, has become known for elephants in particular, as these are regular visitors to that plunge pool and thus offer residents incredible up-close-and-personal experiences as they come to drink.
Including its incredible freeform infinity pool, Sarara lies on hillside within the pristine Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, an 850,000-acre wilderness which encompasses the Matthews Range. Remote and dramatic, this landscape is also home to the Samburu people, whose age-old traditions – including their famous ‘singing wells’ – are as much a part of the land’s fabric as its wildlife.
Sarara is a conservation brand which partners with these indigenous communities in order to build sustainability for people and wildlife via its unique and experiential safari experiences. “We are dedicated to conserving a landscape,” it declares, “where people and wildlife flourish side by side.”
