Sarara Camp

Laikipia tourismDescription

Sarara Camp is a luxury tented camp, built from local materials. It overlooks a waterhole which attracts a variety of game and flocks of birds. Namunyak, means ‘the place of peace’ in Samburu, and this atmosphere is certainly reflected at Sarara Camp.



At the foot of Warges Mountain with sweeping views of the Mathews range, in Samburu country, lies Sarara Camp, in the 185,000 acre Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust. Owned by the Trust, and jointly managed, Sarara is a venture dedicated to both wildlife conservation and community development.


Sarara 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.

Hosted by: Sarara is managed and hosted by Piers and Hilary Bastard. Members for the Samburu community help look after guests at Sarara, and not only are they perfect hosts, but excellent guides in the bush.
