Located west of Samburu and close to Buffalo Springs in the Westgate Community Conservancy, Sasaab employs Moroccan style with a touch of Swahili influence to excellent effect. The tents are designed to deal with the African heat and offer superb views. Colourful rugs and cushions and low tables carry the North African theme through to the decor of the large rooms, each with its very own private plunge pool and sumptuous open-air bathroom.
Poised high above the Ewaso Ng’iro, guests can watch herds of elephant bathe and frolic in the river while drinking in the fantastic views across the Laikipia plateau to Mount Kenya. Enthralling game drives to Samburu and Buffalo Springs usually take place in the mornings. As the temperatures rise, guests return for a tasty lunch and take advantage of the cool of their beautiful rooms or explore more active options.
Sasaab is actively involved in promoting the welfare of the conservancy’s human inhabitants. Guests are encouraged to visit and support the local school and community projects receive 60 % of the revenue from the lodge. Three quarters of Sasaab’s gracious and accommodating staff come from the community.
