Sarara means “meeting place” in the Samburu language. Here, the mountains meet the desert, providing vital water sources to the indigenous people and the wild creatures that inhabit the land—elephants, leopards, giraffes, and dik-dik, to name a few. Near camp, an ancient watering site known as the singing wells draws Samburu families, who meet during the dry season to dig wells for their cattle. Sarara Camp represents a collaborative venture with the local community, and the Samburu are an integral part of daily life here, serving as guides on game drives, bush walks, and village visits. And when you’re not exploring the bush with these knowledgeable guides, the lodge beckons with its infinity pool and cozy terraces, where you can gaze out at the great amphitheater of the Mathews and soak up the timeless beauty of East Africa.
