Nestled into a forest glade at the foot of Uarges mountain, eight spectacular tree houses emerge from the forest canopy. Each tent is en-suite, with solar heated showers looking out into the forest. One unit is specifically designed for families, with an inter-joining bridge. The main mess has commanding views of the mountain range and Uarges peak, with an infinity swimming pool and wildlife waterhole. Elephant, buffalo, leopard, bushbuck and a wide array of other life roams beneath you on the forest floor, offering incredible wildlife and birding experiences from the comfort of your beautifully appointed tree tent.

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.

This off the grid, solar powered lodge is entirely eco friendly, with every precaution and expense taken to preserve the natural habitat surrounding it.
