Rooms: Saruni has just 6 villas. 2 of the villas have 1 en-suite bedroom each, 2 are family villas with 2 en-suite bedrooms each, and the other 2 each have 2 en-suite bedrooms that can be booked separately or together as family accommodation. Every villa has a sitting area and a private terrace. Facilities include a fridge stocked with cold drinks, safe, hairdryer, organic toiletries and bathrobes. They are at varying distances from the Kudu House, the main lodge.
 
Activities: Safaris by vehicle or on foot, and wildlife viewing and photography from a hide by the waterhole. The Warriors Academy programme is a family safari with a strong educational component (special courses in bush skills, animal tracking and guiding). You can visit the caves to see Samburu rock art, go bird watching, and energetic guests can accompany a guide on a trek up Mount Ololokwe, a mountain sacred to the Samburu people. Helicopter and bi-plane flights can be arranged on request, at extra charge. Bush meals and sundowners are popular.
 
Facilities: There are 2 infinity pools, 1 at the highest spot in the grounds, and a spa, the Samburu Well-being Space. Kudu House is the social centre of the lodge, with a lounge and dining area set beneath a thatched roof, and open to the front for optimal views. The shop stocks locally made handicrafts.
 
Dining: Communal dining with your hosts is encouraged but private dining can be arranged if you prefer. The meals have a strong Italian influence. There are indoor and outdoor eating areas.
 
Children: Saruni Samburu welcomes children of all ages, and children must be kept under supervision at all times. The larger villas make great family accommodation. the Warriors Academy programme is designed for families.
 
Health: Malaria risk here is minimal, but other parts of Kenya do have a much higher risk so precautions should be taken.
 
Communication: There is free wifi internet access in social areas, and a good phone signal.
