Saruni SamburuThe architects clearly had fun designing Saruni Samburu, a luxurious lodge set on a giant boulder in the middle of the private Kalama Conservancy in Samburu. Here, the rocks form part of the furniture and structure, jutting out of walls, featuring in the middle of the outdoor decking, and turned into showers with some clever pipe-work. The result is stylish and unique, making Saruni a must-see for guests who appreciate exciting interior design. Aside from the creative decor, Saruni Samburu has a spectacular view out over the billowing golden northern rangelands; a view best appreciated with a gin and tonic in hand from the decked guest area, or from one of the two infinity pools on-site. There are six villas at Saruni Samburu, each with its own spacious living room and fireplace—though hard to believe in the baking midday sun, it can get cool at night up here. Guests are assigned their own private safari jeep and guide, for a personalized experience from start to finish.

Positioned at the top of a giant rock in the Samburu National Reserve is Saruni Samburu, a luxurious lodge that is spectacularly designed not only to take in the panoramic vistas below, but also to enjoy the night’s sky above. Each villa includes its own expansive decking and outdoor bathroom, so for a particularly outstanding shower, wait until night-time, head out onto the deck and turn on the tap to a gazillion blazing stars overhead.
