Perched on a cliff overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River, Sabuk Lodge offers all the charms of a family run safari lodge plus camel rides across the wild beauty of the Northern Laikipia Plateau.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of six spacious stone & thatched cottages constructed from local materials. The en suite bathrooms include flush toilets, a hot shower, and deep stone bathtub with a view. Plush beds and warm duvets make for the perfect night sleep after a thrilling safari. Each open-fronted cottage features a private veranda where guests can relax and take in the magnificent views. The family unit, known as the Eagle Cottage also comes with its own kitchen, two en-suite rooms, and refreshing plunge pool. Some of the cottages even include a star bed for sleeping or staring up at the wondrous African night sky.
Sabuk occupies private land within the Laikipia Plateau where visitors can roam the area on foot. The Plateau is a major part of the Ewaso Ecosystem boasting the second highest wildlife density in Kenya. It’s also home to cheetah, herds of plains game, many reptile species, and over 150 bird species. Moreover, it is home to 7,000 elephants, and it supports important populations of endangered species including black rhino, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Patas monkey, Lelwel’s Hartebeest, and African wild dog. The plateau stretches from the Great Rift Valley to Mt. Kenya. The diverse landscape varies between grass plains and thicker acacia woodlands, a favorite spot of the elephant herds.
