Saruni Samburu....is in a conservancy that is about 45 minutes from Samburu National Park. Because of the drought in northern Kenya, most of the game viewing happens in and around Samburu National Park. At times the park can be a little congested, but our guide, Sumaro did an excellent job of steering us clear of most of the clutter. Since he is an actual guide and knows how to track, he would take us down paths most wouldn't be on. We would get stopped on a regular basis by mini van drivers looking for information about wildlife sitings....I couldn't tell what he would tell them, but I don't think he would help them too much. Out of the 6 camps we visited, some of the best action we saw was here! We saw a pack of wild dogs, a wild cat, 2 separate cheetah kills and we experienced watching 2 lionesses try a hunt that failed. so overall I would say this was a successful safari stop. The accommodations are huge and spectacular. I think I calculated our lodge to be between 1400 - 1600 sq.ft. !!! The view....well you will not get a view like this anywhere else. The meals were excellent and had an Italian influence...since the owner is Italian. I would recommend Saruni Samburu as one of the stops on your safari.
