Samburu land stretches from the foothills of Mt Kenya into the North, which makes up the wild beauty of Kenya’s outback. Here you will find open spaces, serenity and some of the best opportunities for game safaris as well as other outdoor activities.

Apart from the new tarmac road leading from Isiolo towards Marsabit, there is no other stretch of Kenya’s wild North so easily accessible.

Encounter the fascinating pastoralist culture of the Samburu people who lent the land their name and are also cousins of the famous Masai.

The Ololokwe mountain, the scared mountain where prayers are said and blessings are given, signifies you’re in Samburu land.


Saruni Samburu is surrounded by a private wildlife conservancy, and perched on a spectacular view point on top of the Kalama mountains, with an unbelievable view of Kenya’s wild north, right from your room.

The Ewaso Nyiro River which means ‘brown water’ in Maa, the joint language of Masai and Samburu, flows from the misty Aberdare Range and Mt. Kenya through Samburu land before merging with the huge Lorian Swamp further to the East. This river’s water is the ultimate lifeline for man and his cattle as well as for the huge herds of game.
