Sarara Tree Camp

The Sarara Tree Camp encompasses the same atmosphere and vibrancy that Sarara has become renowned for. Nestled into a forest glade within an hours walk of Sarara, the treehouses emerge out of the forest canopy. A main mess area and swimming pool command incredible views of Mount Uarges, one of the seven sacred mountains to the Samburu.

Elephant, buffalo, leopard, bushbuck and a wide array of other life roam beneath you on the forest floor, offering incredible wildlife experiences from the comfort of your beautifully appointed tree tent. This off the grid, solar-powered masterpiece is entirely eco-friendly, with every precaution and expense taken to preserve the natural habitat surrounding it.

The Sarara Tree Camp is entirely community-owned.

Day and Night Game drives
Sarara has established itself as one of the ‘hot spots’ for quality leopard viewing in Africa and equally, for close-up sightings of the normally extremely shy lesser kudu antelope. The African wild dogs are frequently encountered in the Sarara valley too. Elephant, buffalo, giraffe, gerenuk, impala and warthogs are now regularly seen on our game drives and bush walks and are very much on the increase in numbers.Unusual sightings include striped hyena, aardwolf, civet cat, African wild cat, greater kudu, grevy zebra and cheetah.

Early morning game drives are a good time for seeing giraffe, kudu, and elephants. Starting off early, the guides can have you back in time for breakfast at camp or make up a picnic breakfast for you out in the bush.

The night game drive takes you out into the bush to search for the nocturnal star of sarara, the leopard. Leopard sightings are currently running at around 80% for guests staying three nights.
