SAFARI EXPERIENCE at Saruni Samburu Lodge
The vastness and purity of this African landscape, combined with the untouched local culture, make for a unique safari experience. As well as our game drives which traverse Samburu National Reserve, Buffalo Springs National Reserve and West Gate Conservancy, the traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local Samburu people are an important part of the African journey. Led by professional Samburu guides, our guests enjoy a new dimension of this rightfully popular region: the feeling of exclusivity within an incredibly large area combined with a high level of comfort and exceptional tailor-made service.

WILDLIFE CONSERVATION & SOCIAL UPLIFTMENT
In Partnership with Open Africa for sustainable tourism
The Samburu people of Kalama have coexisted with the Samburu National Reserve for over 40 years. In the past the Samburu County Council shared its revenue with Kalama for Kalama’s contribution towards looking after wildlife and for losses incurred by the community as a result of migratory wildlife movements.
In 2002 the Kalama community started its own conservancy – Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy - with the aim of developing the conservation area to attract wildlife by providing permanent water and improved security. Kalama was also able to supply clean piped water to the communities around the conservancy from Kalama HQ for all their domestic needs. In 2008 Saruni Samburu was opened, the first safari lodge in Kalama representing the first regular source of income and employment to the Kalama community. The mission of Saruni Samburu and Kalama is to diversify the community’s economic base, improve livelihoods through the generation of income based on tourism, wildlife and environmental conservation to promote sustainable community development and uphold the Samburu culture.
