Saruni Mara is the only small, boutique lodge in the Mara North Conservancy, with wide open game plains to the south and lush forest to the north. Guests can explore the world-renowned Mara-Serengeti ecosystem in complete exclusivity. Encounter Africa’s Big Five and the most remarkable natural spectacle on Earth, the Great Migration. Enjoy the Italian-inspired cuisine, exceptional service and being immersed in nature from your private veranda, the Maasai Wellbeing Space and the open lounge and dining area.
Saruni Mara has five elegant cottages, one family villa and one private villa. Each room is beautifully designed and stylishly furnished according to a theme, such as the Love Shack, the Photographer’s Studio, The Observatory, and the Natural History Suite.
One of Saruni Mara’s greatest attractions is the fantastic guiding experience. Guests are guided by Maasai warriors, proud custodians of this incredible wilderness, who eagerly share their ancient customs and local knowledge of the landscape and wildlife. Saruni also offers a unique programme called ‘Warriors Academy’, where guests spend a few days learning the survival skills of the revered Maasai warriors. This is a particularly exciting activity for families with children.
