Sarara Tree House, Namunyak Lodges

In the northern frontier of Kenya lies the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, an area of 850,000 acres of pristine wilderness surrounding the Mathews Range of mountains. The savannah plains and lush mountain slopes are home to elephant, leopard, reticulated giraffe, wild dog and kudu in ever-increasing numbers. This remote and dramatic landscape is also home to the local Samburu people whose age-old traditions, including the famed Singing Wells, are as much a part of the fabric of this land as the wildlife.

Sarara Tree has eight tent platforms with ensuite toilet and basin with an adjacent shower enclosed within Sarara ‘style’ walls but open to the skies.  Two tents are close together and work well for families with younger children (5 and over)
