Nestled in a secluded valley within the beautiful Mara North Conservancy, Saruni Mara is the only boutique lodge in the Mara area.
Accommodating up to twelve guests, Saruni Mara has five unique cottages, one family villa, and one private villa. Each of the double cottages features a unique theme and decor. Guests can choose between the Observatory, the Photographer’s Studio, the Artist’s Studio, the Literary Room, and the Love Shack – for the honeymooners. Each cottage has a spacious en suite bathroom and private veranda with stunning views of the valley. The family villa, known as the Natural History Suite includes two en-suite bedrooms, a large lounge complete with dining area and big, welcoming fireplace and a large veranda. While the Nyati House private villa is perfect for families with its two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge, dining room, kitchen, veranda, and front garden.
The lodge is located in a remote valley in the private 74,000-acre Mara North Conservancy close to Maasai Mara National Reserve. Uniquely situated adjacent to the only remaining indigenous forest in the Maasai Mara, it’s the perfect spot to observe colobus and sykes monkeys. Of course, the big draw is the annual great migration when millions of wildebeests and thousands of zebras and Thomsons gazelles stream across the plains in search of new pastures. The conservancy is a partnership between conservationists, investors, and over 800 Maasai landowners for the benefit of sustaining the animals and the Maasai community.
