Certificate of Excellence
Saruni Wild is a tented camp elegantly and comfortably furnished with all the necessary luxuries of a wild yet classic safari. The camp has recently relocated to a very central location in the heart of the Masai Mara ecosystem (in a private reserve called Lemek Conservancy). Enjoy uninterrupted views from your private verandah, fire-lit meals under the vast African sky. Saruni Wild is the smallest tenets camp in the Mara and a fantastic additino to the Saruni portfolio of safari camps.

For our first ever safari, we couldn't have chosen a better place to explore the wonders of the Masai Mara. The camp, with all the amenities (and more) you could have wished for, is located right on the edge of the plains with uninterrupted views...More
