Camps & Lodges

Saruni Basecamp owns and operates 12 camps and lodges across Kenya, in the Masai Mara and Samburu regions. The properties partner with community-owned conservancies in the most beautiful areas of the country, offering memorable, life-changing experiences often off the beaten track but right in the middle of wildlife action.

Discover Kenya

Kenya, the land where the modern safari was born, has all the ingredients that make it right: very abundant wildlife, inspiring and diverse landscapes, the cultures of communities like the Maasai and the Samburu still proud of their heritage. And the well-oiled wheels of a tourist industry that has tradition and a long record of customer-service.


At Saruni Basecamp we believe that a great safari experience is made of many elements: the majestic African wildlife in its stunning landscapes, but also the culture and traditions of the Maasai and Samburu.

About Us

Conservation of land and wildlife, partnership with the local communities to ensure they benefit from it, safari tourism as a tool for protecting the web of life in Kenya and in Africa, changing the life of our guests making them actors of change, not only witnesses.


Saruni Basecamp is a company that believes in “impact investments”: they are investments made to generate positive and measurable changes on both the social and environmental habitats, alongside a financial return.

Each of our twelve Saruni Basecamp camps and lodges in Masai Mara and Samburu in Kenya are situated with all the iconic wildlife right at its doorstep.
