Sabuk

Laikipia Samburu & the North

Rating: Deluxe    Price from: £275-£445 pp full board

Sabuk overview

Sabuk (meaning buffalo) is a remote luxury lodge in Laikipia overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River at a picturesque gorge. Sabuk lodge is set in 1500 acres which is home to a variety of wildlife including dik-dik, giraffe, zebra, leopard, elephants, antelope and wild dog.

You can go for game drives (day or night), however the main reason for coming to Sabuk is to enjoy the wilderness either on foot, with horses or camels. You can also go fishing, swim in the river and visit a Maasai village. If you are here for a few days, you may want to stay out fly-camping for a night or two. One of the excellent Samburu guides will ensure that you see the best this region has to offer.

There are eight large en-suite, open-sided rooms (doubles or twins), two of which are suitable for families, plus 'Eagle Cottage' which consists of 2 bedrooms with a sitting room and pool. All the rooms are built of stone, wood and thatch very much in keeping with the landscape, but also very comfortable, and with fabulous views even from the baths of most rooms!

There is a cosy main living area with lounge and dining room looking out on to the same awe-inspiring landscape. The food is excellent. There is a swimming pool and you can swim in the river.

Mr. Steven Rubin (27/10/2013)

"Rooms were not particularly to our liking, but setting was wonderful, as was the food. Very little game to be seen and activities somewhat limited."
