Saruni Mara

PLAN MY TRIP

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.

Day and night game drives are conducted in state of the art Land Rovers by expert guides and trackers. Plains wildlife is plentiful to the south, and safari drives often encounter elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, hippo, crocodile, antelope, and waterbuck. Guided bush walks are led by Maasai warriors through the plains, hills, and forests as they teach about plants for traditional use and their way of life. Other activities include sundowners, bush meals, and cultural visits to local villages. For a more unique experience, the “Warrior for a Week” program teaches guests the survival skills of world-class Maasai warriors, including animal tracking and tool-making. A drawing safari involves working with in-house artist, Mariane Høstmark Tveter to paint some of the world’s most magnificent scenery.

The main lodge houses a lounge, library, and dining room. Meals consist of communal dining hosted by the guides and managers and are based around the guests with no set times. While any dietary need can be catered too, the lodge serves delicious Italian cuisine featuring fresh and local ingredients. The Maasai Wellbeing Space has a full-menu of massage and wellness treatments available.
