Saruni Wild is a three tented camp elegantly and comfortably furnished with all the necessary luxuries of a wild yet classic safari. The camp is located in the heart of the Masai Mara plains in the Lemek Conservancy, bordering the Mara North Conservancy.

Saruni Wild offers utter seclusion and total authenticity – guests are immersed in nature and have the unforgettable experience of being under canvas in the middle of the wilderness. Each tent is tastefully furnished and has all the essential amenities of a luxury camping experience, including en-suite bathrooms, hot showers and flushing loos, and spacious verandas with beautiful views. Surrounded by tens of thousands hectares of pristine, untouched wilderness, the camp has the most classic Masai Mara setting. The wildlife thrive right next to its tents.

Enjoy uninterrupted views, fire-lit meals under the vast African sky, guided bush walks and game drives led by experienced Maasai guides. The Maasai will host you at Saruni Wild, sharing their ancient wisdom, their local knowledge of the animals, and secret corners of the most iconic wildlife reserve in Kenya.

The camp has two double tents en-suite, each accommodating two people. It also has one family tent with two en-suite bedrooms accommodating four people. All tents can fit one extra bed to accommodate children under the age of 16.

One of the most remarkable aspects of a safari at Saruni Wild is the privacy and exclusivity, and the personal touch. Over and above being professionally qualified, the guides are a part of the tribe who are the proud custodians of this incredible wilderness, and who have known this area as their home for centuries.

Set amongst teeming plains game, wildlife is found all around the camp, as the tents are situated within their natural habitat. The Mara-Serengeti eco system, of which the Mara North Conservancy and Saruni Wild is a part, has the highest density of predators and plains game of any wilderness in the world, and is home to the most thrilling, awe-inspiring natural spectacle on the planet – the Great Migration.

The camp offers day and night-time game drives, bush walks, bush meals and sundowners, stargazing, cultural visits to local village market and scenic flights or hot air ballooning. A day visit into the Masai Mara National Reserve can be arranged to experience the wildebeest river crossings. Visits to the Olchorro Rhino Sanctuary are arranged on request.

Saruni Wild is the perfect location for the ‘Warriors Academy’ programme, where guests spend a few days learning the survival skills of the revered Maasai warriors, taking part in teaching in the same way as a junior warrior learns to track animals and craft tools on the plains of the Masai Mara. This is a particularly exciting activity for families with children.

Saruni Wild is fully involved in supporting and managing the Mara North Conservancies, which provides jobs, income, training and guidance for the local Maasai people. Tourism directly supports conservation – by visiting Saruni Wild, you are directly giving back to the community who protects this beautiful land, improving their quality of life, while at the same time encouraging the purpose for conservation.

Ideal for those looking for an exclusive glamping experience right in the thick of it!
