Saruni Eagle View

Saruni Eagle View is located on a panoramic escarpment in Mara Naboisho Conservancy, Masai Mara, with sweeping views over the open savannah in what is one of the most beautiful and protected areas of the Mara ecosystem. Its natural salt lick and watering hole provide both a busy hunting site for predators and unique game viewing perspectives for our guests. In fact, Mara Naboisho Conservancy is one of Africa’s prime game viewing destinations. It is home to all year abundant wildlife and amazing rich Maasai heritage. With this contemporary-looking eco-camp made of 9 tents, we invite our guests to gaze towards the future of sustainable tourism. The innovative architecture and minimal design complement the purity of the untouched surroundings. A Gold Eco-rated property certified by Eco Tourism Kenya, Saruni Eagle View is small, intimate and very special. Its tents are spaciously laid out in modern safari style, offering guests a tranquil and relaxing retreat.

Reasons to Visit Saruni Eagle View

There are many reasons to visit Saruni Eagle View and we have selected the six main ones to make it easier for you to feel the uniqueness of this safari lodge, where nature, wildlife and people connect in a special way.

Prime Location

Saruni Eagle View is located in Mara Naboisho Conservancy, and wonderfully secluded from other Mara lodges so that you can enjoy a more exclusive safari experience. Surrounded by 50 000 acres of pristine, untouched wilderness, the camp offers a classic Masai Mara setting. Regular wildlife sightings – including predators and nocturnal creatures – make for an unbeatable Kenyan safari.

Exceptional Views

The camp is situated on the edge of hill, commanding incredible views over the Koiyaki plains that stretch as far as the eye can see. At the base of the hill is a waterhole next to a salt lick, frequented by a variety of animals including plains game, giraffe, hippos and elephants.

Exclusive Experiences

Enjoy exclusive wildlife viewing on game drives, with only a strictly limited number of vehicles allowed in the conservancy at any given time. You can also experience the thrill of a night game drive and the chance to see secretive nocturnal animals as they go about their lives under cover of darkness. Close, mutually respectful interactions with the local Maasai people are also offered, as well as tailormade walking and mobile camping experiences.

Innovative Architecture

Entirely sympathetic to the stunning surroundings, the structures at Saruni Eagle View are based on a contemporary, minimalist take on traditional safari style. Nothing is allowed to impact on your view and sense of connection to the surrounding wilderness, and the camp blends in seamlessly. Your creature comforts are assured, while everything superfluous has been stripped away to allow you to concentrate on the majesty of the panorama and the smaller details closer at hand.

Positive impacts

We provide year-round support to over 500 Maasai families in the area through land-lease fees, employment opportunities and sustainability projects that are improving the quality of life for many Mara Naboisho community members.

Preserving a key ecosystem

Tourism directly supports conservation through daily ‘park’ fees – this revenue is the main source of commercial income for the community, used not only to run the conservancy but to provide members with support in areas like health and education. It also provides them with a powerful financial incentive to keep community land undeveloped and in its natural state dedicated exclusively to tourism activity, ensuring the wildlife can traverse freely and safely throughout.
