The wildlife highlight of Samburu is the large herds of elephants, which are especially tolerant of safari cars. The Samburu people, who reside in the area, are a proud tribe of cattle owning pastoralists, a section of the Maa-speaking people who rely on their cattle, sheep, camels and goats for their livelihoods. The Samburu people have strived to preserve much of their culture and are very proud to show their way of life to visitors, making a visit to this area an exceptional cultural experience. The spa, Spasaab, is located on the banks of the river, and so guests are pampered while experiencing breathtaking views of nature. The flow of the river, the relaxing sound of birdsong and various animals that are drawn to the river all play a part in the relaxed ambience at the spa.
Day or night game drives are organised for guests. Lion, leopard and cheetah or the Samburu Special Five; Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, beisa oryx, gerenuk and somali ostrich, can be seen. Countryside camel riding or a walk through the breathtaking vastness of Africa on a guided nature walk can be opted as a more relaxing activity. Guests may camp under the stars, in a new location every night, with a mosquito net and unwind. Children activities include learning how to make traditional Samburu bows and arrows, toothbrushes from trees and enjoy grilled marshmallows. Children are also allowed to create their own souvenirs of their Sasaab Samburu adventure; by taking home a plaster cast of a wild animal track or hand carving their own traditional Samburu weapons.
