Sasaab is situated on a rocky ridge above the banks of the mighty Ewaso Nyiro river in north-central Kenya. Here in the heart of Samburu land, Sasaab is the only lodge in the vicinity and the safari experience is all the more spectacular for the location’s wildness, in an area renowned for its variant species.
The architecture of Sasaab follows strong Moroccan design principles, in which African heat is of primary consideration. Each of the nine Moroccan-styled rooms is over 100m² with an enormous open-air bathroom and private plunge pool. From the veranda, guests can take in the remarkable views across the Laikipia Plateau toward the jagged peak of Mount Kenya. Its position on the river naturally facilitates watching the herds of elephant that come to bathe.
Enjoy guided walks, bird watching, stargazing or a visit to SpaSaab for world-class beauty treatments. For the more adventurous take a game drive, camel ride or spend a night or two in the further reaches of the conservation, fly camping and sleeping under the stars. Sasaab also has close ties with the local Samburu tribes who are delighted to share their traditions and we actively encourage guests to visit.
Sasaab prides itself on our hospitality and our friendly and attentive staff strive to make every guests’ experience unforgettable.
