Mathews Range, Kenya
Standing alone in a huge private conservancy, Sarara is one of Kenya’s most untouched and remote camps. Only accessible by private charter flight, it offers a supreme exclusivity, along with stunning safari encounters. Normally elusive leopards become the norm on game drives, while the unchartered landscape creates majestic adventures on foot.
Sarara combines all the elements of a luxury safari. It’s wild and authentic, quickly impressing the rhythm of an animal world untouched by time. Yet there’s romance and luxury, with high-ceilinged tents and an infinity pool for watching nomadic elephants roam by. Each of the six tents overlooks a waterhole and you just need to sit back in order to enjoy the show.
As you’d expect, the exclusivity is complemented by a dedication to detail. Most safari camps offer tailored programs but we’ve found Sarara to go a few steps further. Guides outline potential routes and you can piece together a day that includes day and night drives, walking safaris, fly camping, bush picnics and dinners, helicopter flights, and trips to neighbouring parks and conservancies (note that some activities aren’t included in the rates). Just picture your dream safari day and Sarara makes it happen.
Resident leopards and elephants are certainly our highlights here, along with the sublime quality of the accommodation. Few tented camps in Africa can offer such luxury, in such a wild and remote place. Throw in the authentic cultural experiences and every visitor will see why Sarara Luxury Tented Camp deserves its fame.
