Sasaab Lodge is perched above the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, capturing panoramic views across the culturally rich Samburu land, Laikipia plateau and Mathews Range. Located in northern Kenya, north of the equator, it has a wild beauty of its own. The descent from the lush slopes of Mount Kenya, into the semi-arid desert of Kenya's "NFD" - the Northern Frontier District, is breathtaking. The Sasaab lodge is located on Samburu community land and part of Ngutuk-Ongiron Group Ranch. Built using locally sourced materials and with an exciting Moroccan influence, the Carr-Hartley signature of attention to detail and elegance is the trademark of Sasaab.
The Buffalo Springs and Samburu National Reserves, and the extensive ranch and communal lands of the Samburu Heartland, support some of Africa's most impressive wildlife and dramatic scenery. Northern specialty species like the Reticulated Giraffe and the Grevy's zebra roam the acacia grassland where lions, leopards, cheetah and wild dogs hunt their prey.
Sasaab accommodates up to 18 guests in nine individually located rooms with magnificent views of the river and the true African wilderness, each over 100 square meters and with their own plunge pool and privacy. The uniquely designed tents are ideal for game viewing and bird-watching as well as relaxing.
The novel "souk" style mess provides a warm and friendly atmosphere. Meals are prepared with the finest fresh ingredients and served in the privacy of various different areas of the "souk" or can be al fresco under the stars!
Activities are complemented by Sasaab's knowledgeable and colorful Samburu guides, whether on camel walks, game drives, educational cultural visits or bush walks. Back at the lodge you may choose to relax by the main swimming pool, enjoy beauty treatments in the privacy of your own tent or find a corner of your own to unwind. To end your day, there can be nowhere better to enjoy sundowners, either from a rocky kopje a short walk away or the elevated terrace at the lodge.
Immerse yourself in the beauty of Africa and the culture of the Samburu tribe for an unrivalled safari experience with a touch of luxury.
