The Black Rhino Tracking Experience is a pioneering walking safari first of its kind in East Africa, providing a unique and exhilarating adventure whilst also allowing guests to actively contribute to the protection of this iconic species.
Opening in 2016, Saruni Rhino has been successfully offering this special activity to its clients. While we were doing it, the rhino population grew and the sanctuary became an extraordinary example of community-managed conservation. Currently, the on-foot rhino tracking is suspended while Saruni Basecamp and its partner, Sera Conservancy, are upgrading the highly specialized training needed by both our staff and the Sera rangers’ team to safely track black rhino, including the many mothers and calves who live in the sanctuary today. We are also adopting enhanced firearms-holding techniques and refreshing our skills. The Conservancy is also introducing new monitoring instruments that will make tracking easier. Therefore, we expect to resume the on-foot black rhino tracking soon.
In the meanwhile, the conservancy and the sanctuary offer many other activities that are equally thrilling and interesting, from spectacular bird watching to the incredible “singing wells” experience, from game drives to game walks and more. The wildlife inside the sanctuary is growing and you can expect to encounter the Samburu Special Five, Beisa oryx, gerenuk, ostrich, Grevy’s Zebra and reticulated giraffe.
