Safaris

Safari meaning ‘journey’ in Swahili, stirs up images of a savanna landscape teeming with wildlife, relaxing outside ones tent while being served a sun-downer around a crackling fire, watching elephants peacefully meander with Mt. Kilimanjaro as the backdrop, meeting Maasai warriors along the dirt track and much, much more. Let us take you there…

We offer you the opportunity to visit the Africa, people only think of in their dreams. In conjunction with our hand selected destinations and hosts we reveal to you a side of East Africa that the majority do not even know still exists.

DESTINATION

Sabuk is an entrancing haven on the edge of the Laikipia plateau, overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River and the plains of Laikipia towards Mount Kenya. The Laikipia plateau stretches from the foothills of the Aberdares, across vast open plains to the Northern Frontier District and the Mathews Range. The region nurtures exceptional wildlife and cultural diversity, home to many communities including the Laikipiak Maasai and the Samburu tribes. Around Sabuk the area is wild and hilly, with dense acacia bush, Greater Kudu, Reticulated Giraffe, Buffalo, Impala, Elephant, Klipspringer, Zebra, Eland, DikDik, Waterbuck, Lion, Leopard, great bird watching and incredible scenery.

ACCOMODATION

The camp accommodates up to 16 guests in authentic, spacious white canvas tents. The camp has eight tents, each with a canopied verandah and carefully arranged to ensure privacy. Each tent is luxuriously furnished with safari antiques from the 1920’s, private ensuite dressing rooms/bathrooms, showers and flush toilets. The camp is equipped with a tented library/reading room and the cuisine and silver service is of the highest standard to be found in the bush.

Each tent has its own private butler.

EXPERIENCE

Leave your vehicles behind and get back to nature with walks along the river, accompanied by the local Laikipiak Maasai guides, who pass on their knowledge and traditional uses of the flora in the area. Guests enjoy picnics in the shade by the river, a refreshing dip in the natural rock pools below camp or just basking on the main deck overlooking the plains, lulled by the sound of the river which flows all year round.

Sabuk is also the base for full walking and camel trek safaris. Led by a professional safari guide and his team of Laikipiak trekkers, guests can choose to fly-camp out in the wilderness for one or several nights before returning to the home comforts of the lodge.

Activities include game drives through the hilly countryside around camp, guided walks with camels to explore the area; also bush breakfasts and sundowners with the added treat of a night game drive back to camp afterwards, looking out for nocturnal Bush Babies and the elusive Aardvark.

LAIKIPIA

Once a series of large private cattle ranches and traditional grazing land, changing tunes and fortunes have seen these vast, spectacular tracts of land turned into successful wildlife and conservation areas. Local communities and private ranchers work together to conserve both wildlife and traditional lifestyles and cultures – creating stunning eco-tourist destinations using only natural building materials and features.

Beautiful private homesteads can be found amongst herds of Antelope, roaming Elephant and Rhino conservation areas. An ideal area for Camel trekking, walking, riding and biking.
