Saruni included in KTB’s ‘Magical Kenya Signature Experiences’ Collection
After an in-depth, lengthy evaluation and selection process, Saruni is delighted that two of its iconic activities have been inaugurated into Kenya Tourism Board’s 2021-2022 ‘Magical Kenya Signature Experiences’ Collection.
The Magical Kenya Signature Experiences Collection is a compilation of authentic and exceptional travel experiences, selected by the Kenya Tourism Board, that best showcase the ‘fascination’ and ‘seduction’ that Kenya has to offer, beyond the mainstream tourist activities.
In partnership with this respected tourism initiative, we are proud to offer to global travellers seeking adventure and edu-tainment alike, two very unique, “not your average safari” experiences: the ‘Black Rhino Tracking Experience at Saruni Rhino’, our intimate 3-banda camp in Samburu, Northern Kenya, and 'Warriors Academy' at Saruni Mara’, our permanent lodge nestled in the valley in Mara North Conservancy, Masai Mara, Kenya.
BLACK RHINO TRACKING EXPERIENCE AT SARUNI RHINO
With Saruni Rhino as a base, we offer guests a scintillating, ‘thrill-of-a-lifetime’ experience: a walking safari tracking black rhino on foot, accompanied by a guide and a highly-trained Sera Conservancy ranger leading guests in safety to the locations of some of the 18 rhinos throughout the 54,000 hectares-large Sera Rhino sanctuary. Expert Samburu guides game drive guests a tracking distance away from the nearest rhino, leaving the vehicle and continuing on foot to metres from the grazing rhino. The tension is palpable when you come across the rhino in such close proximity for the first time; heart beating, pulse racing, curiosity and excitement mounting – it doesn’t get more thrilling than this. https://saruni.com/tracking-the-rhino/
WARRIORS ACADEMY AT SARUNI MARA
Whilst on safari at Saruni Mara (or Saruni Wild), we offer guests the chance to participate in a complimentary activity called the ‘Warriors Academy’. The Warriors Academy is a special interactive safari experience with a strong educational flavour, designed especially for families with children or small groups. It is a fun learning experience, that allows guests to explore not only the wildlife, but also the authentic lifestyle of one of the culturally fascinating tribes left in Africa; the Maasai. Under the tutelage of their ‘Moran’, or warriors, guests get to know, enjoy and understand these unique people and see the Kenyan wilderness from a different perspective. The Warriors Academy is a totally different walking safari, in addition to the ‘usual’ safari activities, that leaves a big impression long after. A mixture of cultural insights, physical exercise, learning and family-bonding time! https://saruni.com/warriorsacademy/
