Saruni Rhino is a small, intimate lodge located in the Sera Community Conservancy in the north of Kenya. About 60 miles north of Mt Kenya, the lodge sits beside a dry river bed under a canopy of large shady doum palms.
Accommodation & Facilities
Because Saruni Rhino is in a low lying part of Kenya, the rooms are open fronted to allow the breeze to cool them. There are three cleverly designed ‘bandas’, with stone walls at the back and a large thatched roof, which also help keep them cool. The rooms have en-suite bathrooms and comfortable chairs on the verandah. One has been designed with families in mind comprising two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The lodge has a central mess which is of the same style, open to the river bed at its front. Although the mess has a lovely dining table, meals are often eaten outside as the climate lends itself to this. There is also a pool which is ideal for cooling down on hot days.
Wildlife & Activities
The focus of activities here is tracking black rhino on foot with experienced rangers using telemetry to pinpoint the location of the rhino in the bush, and to walk guests in close to see them, which is a unique opportunity in Kenya. Additional activities include game drives, excellent bird watching, walks, and visits to the local community.
