The Sarara Camp tents overlook the majestic Matthews Mountain Range, providing a fantastic platform by which to experience the 850,000-acre wildlife conservancy. Sarara Camp also has a two bedroom family unit, called Sarara House, which includes a beautiful plunge pool, private dining and its own sitting room.

The camp waterhole is frequented by an array of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, kudu, impala, leopard, wild dog and reticulated giraffe. Sarara House has become famous for its elephant, which are regular visitors to the house pool and offer guests incredible up close and personal experiences as they come for their water.

Sarara lies within Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, an 850,000 acre pristine wilderness in the Matthews Mountain Range. This remote and dramatic landscape is also home to the local Samburu people whose age-old traditions, including the famous ‘singing wells’ are as much a part of the fabric of this land as the wildlife. Sarara is a conservation brand that partners with indigenous communities to build sustainability for people and wildlife through truly unique and experiential safari experiences.

Sarara is a flagship, community-owned and community-driven conservation initiative in Northern Kenya.
We are dedicated to conserving a landscape where people and wildlife flourish, side by side.
