Sarara Camp is a community owned property located off the beaten track, in the foothills of the Mathews Range just north of Samburu Game Reserve. The camp sits within the 75,000 hectares Namunyak Community Group Ranch and now boasts a wide variety of wildlife such as elephants, buffaloes, kudus, forest hogs and even lions and leopards.
Mathews Range is a stunning range of hills & mountains to the north of Laikipia at the base of Kenya's Northern Frontier District. The Matthews rise to over 2,300 metres with a network of valleys and ridges, thick with stands of cedar, many topped off with dramatic craggy peaks.
Sarara Camp has six luxury tents, each positioned to maximise the stunning views of the Mathews Range of mountains and the animal watering hole. Preserving the romance of the tented camp, these tents are spacious and high ceilinged, with plenty of cupboard space, electric lighting and 24-hour hot and cold running water.
There is an outdoor bathroom offering a superb view of the hills from the shower. But there is also an indoor toilet and sink at the back of the tent for midnight visits. Each tent has its own private terrace with table and chairs and morning coffee and tea are brought to you so that you can wake up gazing out over the mountains.
In the mornings, tea, coffee or juice is brought to your tent at the time of your choosing. Breakfast is available in the mess building at any time to accommodate those coming back from an early morning safari and those just getting up. Lunch is often set up under a tree or in the mess if it is hot. Buffet style, lunch consists of a variety of dishes including fresh salads and followed by a cheese platter.
Tea is served at 4.30 pm, before the evening safari and comes with home made cake or biscuits made by the chef that day. Drinks and dinner might be set up on the terrace overlooking the pool or somewhere a little more wild.
