A new Kenya safari camp opens 1 February 2017 in the remote wilderness of northern Kenya and it’s all about black rhino tracking on foot – Saruni Rhino. This is East Africa’s only black rhino tracking experience on foot and it takes place in Sera Community Conservancy, vast and untouched 350,000 hectare wilderness.
With two elegant open stone cottages, the property offers 4 – 6 people an immersive and unique safari experience. Saruni Rhino has sweeping views of a dramatic landscape, waterhole and offers bush TV as wildlife come to drink daily. At restricted times in the day (for safety reasons), you will walk with a Saruni guide and highly trained Sera Community ranger equipped with transmitter that correlates to the GPS whereabouts of 11 black rhinos located on a 54,000 hectare sanctuary. You can also then game drive and see plenty of other wildlife known as the Samburu specials – oryx, gerenuk, ostrich, Grevy’s Zebra, reticulated girafe, buffalo, elephant and more. PLUS what we love is the Fifty Wels of Sera – a series of 50 springs where you can see local pastoralists taking their livestock to drink. Another thrill is visiting the recently opened @TheRetetiElephantSanctuary that provides shelter for orphaned and abandoned elephant calves.
Well done Saruni and Sera community members plus the Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT) for your hard work and perseverance.
* Up to 6 people in camp at any given time
* There is a nightly rate plus a special conservation fee of US$175 per person per day/night for those wanting to go on the rhino tracking activity.
