Sasaab Camp

Sensational Safari

Tucked away in one of East Africa’s famous safari destinations is the luxurious, Moroccan-inspired Sasaab Camp

Sasaab finds its home in Samburu National Reserve in Northern Kenya – a world-class game viewing destination on the banks of a rushing river.

The remote wilderness of Samburu is a unique wildlife conservation oasis renowned for its many rare species (think Grey zebra, Somali ostrich, reticulated giraffe, gerenuk, and beisa oryx). There are also plenty of elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, and – famously – great opportunities for spotting leopard. 

It’s little surprise that this area is what inspired and was made famous by renowned conservationists George and Joy Adamson, who documented their adventures in the beloved book and movie, Born Free


Wild Luxury

Overlooking this pristine wilderness (and all the way to the peak of Mount Kenya) is the Moroccan-inspired Sasaab Camp. The exclusive accommodation boasts nine individual cottages, each elegantly designed and offering a private plunge pool plus a large veranda overlooking the river where herds of elephants stop to bathe. 

There is a main swimming pool with incredible views over the river, too, and guests love tucking into the famous Sasaab woodfired pizzas at the poolside. 

Other unique dining opportunities include the opportunity to have breakfast out in the bush, making the most of the spectacular African sunrises.

Authentic Adventures

In addition to the off-the-beaten-track appeal of the remote Samburu, there are also plenty of unique experiences to enjoy in the area.  

There are, of course, world-class twice-daily game drives (including night drives), but you could also explore the reserve by camel, go on a mountain biking expedition, take a helicopter flip over the area, or walk along the river bank before enjoying an outdoor dining experience around a campfire and sleeping under the African stars! 

Those wanting to immerse themselves in the local culture will be left awestruck by the singing wells cultural excursion, which gives guests the opportunity to observe a unique traditional ritual from eras past in the heart of the reserve.

After all the excitement, rest and restore your body and mind at the Sasaab spa, which offers an array of pamper treatments administered by skilled hands using natural Kenyan ingredients.
