This is in case there are no other people joining you on the flight. If you are a party of four, the price will be lower as no flight supplement is needed.

Saruni Samburu commands some of the best views in Kenya. It’s a much loved design lodge located on Kalama Conservancy next to Samburu National Reserve, in Kenya’s wild north. Surrounded by a 95,000 hectares private reserve and perched on top of a spectacular viewpoint, its villas and its swimming pools overlook waterholes where the famous Samburu elephant, leopard, reticulated giraffe and Grevy zebra gather to drink.
The vastness and the purity of this African landscape, combined with the untouched local culture, will make your wildlife safari a different experience. We are close enough to game drive inside Samburu National reserve, Buffalo Springs National Reserve and West Gate Conservancy, but many activities take place in Kalama, a well-kept secret of Kenya’s North. The recent introduction of water means that Kalama is becoming an important attraction to all the Samburu wildlife. Our activities include night and morning game drive in Kalama Conservancy, rock climbing, professionally-led game walks, bush dinners and star gazing. The traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local Samburu people are an important part of the experience. Led by professional Samburu guides, our guests enjoy a new dimension of this rightfully popular region: the feeling of exclusivity, of having an incredibly large area totally to their own, and a high level of comfort and tailor-made service.
