MERU NATIONAL PARK
Situated in northern Kenya, covers an area of 870 square kilometers. It straddles the equator about 370 kilometers northeast of Nairobi. Thirteen permanent rivers originate from the high hills fringing the western boundary of the Park. Such an abundance of water flowing through a predominantly arid part of Kenya creates a mosaic of different habitats making Meru one of the most diverse Parks in the whole Africa. Meru National Park is home to species typical of northern Kenya such as reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, gerenuk, Oryx, lesser kudu, which are not to be found in many other National Parks or areas in Kenya. Not to mention the classic African icons such as lion, cheetah, elephant, and hippo. Birdlife is particularly abundant with more than 400 different species recorded. A specific mention has to be made for the Rhino Sanctuary which is at the doorstep of Rhino River Camp. The area devoted to the protection and population increase of rhinos is today about 50 square kilometers and is located on the Western boundary of the Park. Here 40 white and 20 black rhinos roam freely.

THE SAMBURU ECOSYSTEM
Is one of the most exciting in East Africa and is made of several national reserves, private ranches and communally-owned group ranches that are more and more interconnected. Famous for its large population of elephants, Samburu stands out for the abundance of northern species that cannot be found in other areas of Kenya.

Kalama Conservation area, the wildlife sanctuary bordering with Samburu National Reserve where we are located, has an abundance of other rare species, like the leopard, the striped hyena, the civet. We'd love to take you to our secret spots, especially for bush dinner, or to the river for a picnic lunch that allows us to be with elephants, waterbuck, lion, impala, giraffe and all the Samburu species that go and drink water. If you are passionate about birds, Samburu is your preferred park: not only the species are abundant, but the birds are very tame and can be easily spotted and photographed.

THE MAASAI MARA
The Maasai Mara is a 5,000 square km ecosystem made of a national reserve and several private conservancies. The national reserve covers 1,672 square kilometres (more than 400,000 acres) and is situated between 1,500 and 2,100 meters above sea level. It is part of the Serengeti ecosystem that extends from northern Tanzania into southern Kenya. Of the conservancies, in one (where Saruni is located) is the Mara North Conservancy, 74,000 acres of amazing wilderness, where the most of the wildlife is concentrated most of the year.

The Maasai Mara region is considered the jewel of African wildlife and nowhere on the continent can you find the same abundance and variety of wild animals. Millions of wildebeest, gazelle, zebra, buffalo, impala, topi, hartebeest, giraffe, eland, elephant, dik-dik, hippo and warthog live their natural lifecycle alongside the largest population of lions in Kenya.

For our safaris we use comfortable, fully-open Land Rovers, specially designed to give you maximum visibility over the landscape and the animals. On our foot safaris we walk, on the plains and in the mountains that surround Saruni.
