New photographic hide at Saruni Samburu

Saruni Samburu can now provide guests access to an elephant-proof, ground-level photographic hide situated at a waterhole.

Designed with the needs of both novice and professional photographers in mind, buried underground and covered with earth, shrubs and bushes, the hide is the perfect spot for ‘stealing’ amazing images of birds, animals and elephants found in Samburu. The hide accommodates up to 8 guests with reference maps, books, photographers’ beanbags, and a cool-box full of refreshing drinks.

The hide at Saruni Samburu was inaugurated in July 2016 by National Geographic Creative contract photographer, Sergio Pitamitz, who, after holding previous Kenya Photo Camps across the Saruni lodges, proposed the idea to develop a purpose-built hide to accommodate the groups attending the camp, but also future Saruni guests interested in a unique experience. Tom, Saruni’s skillful Operations Manager worked tirelessly with craftsmen to modify a standard container into what is now the ultimate photographers’ retreat.
