Kenya

Sasaab Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

Located on a steep bank and overlooking the Laikipia Plains, Sasaab Camp is a Moroccan-inspired tented camp with all the luxury and attention to detail of a Safari Collection property.

The camp consists of nine detached cottage-style rooms with large thatched roofs and canvas sides in a stunning blend of Moroccan and Swahili styles designed with the practicality of keeping the rooms cool as well as beautiful. Each room features comfortable four-poster beds with en suite open-air bathrooms. Guests can take in the stunning views of the Ewaso Nyiro River and jagged heights of Mt. Kenya from the luxury of a private veranda complete with a refreshing plunge pool. The family suite can be booked as an exclusive villa with a shared central area and separate access for added privacy.

Sasaab Camp is situated in the Westgate Community Conservancy, west of Samburu and Buffalo Springs National Reserves, in Kenya’s Northern Frontier District. A wide variety of animals live here from huge majestic elephants to lions,
leopards, and cheetahs and the ‘Samburu Special Five’: the Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Gerenuk antelope, and Somali ostrich. The lodge promotes conservation efforts and education of the local neighborhood and provides funding from guest’s fees for giving back to the community.

There are several exciting activities to choose from at the camp. With the Big Five and rare Special Five within easy reach, the camp offers daily game drives with the extra luxuries of blankets, hot and cold drinks, and sweets to enhance the journey. There are guided walks for a closer view of the magnificent Samburu surroundings. For the younger guests, Samburu guides also teach children how to make a traditional bow and arrow or a toothbrush from the ‘toothbrush tree’. There are also birdwatching, bush breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, as well as sundowners. The camp has five resident camels available for rides anytime of the day. For adrenaline junkies, quad bike excursions traverse the Samburu wilderness with an optional overnight trip available. Samburu homestead visits and dances teach guests about the rich, local culture.

All guests enjoy full-board during their stay, which includes all meals and most drinks. Sumptuous Moroccan-inspired meals using local Kenyan produce are offered in various areas around the lodge, and private dining on guests’ verandahs or by the pool are offered on request. End the evening with drinks at the bar or relax with a spa treatment available at Spa Sasaab. The lodge also has a main swimming pool, built on the hillside overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River. Free Wi-Fi is provided.
