Sasaab Lodge is located in an area which is home to the Samburu tribe, family of the Maasai tribe. The lodge offers day and night game drives, cultural visits to the Samburu tribe village, camel rides, fly camping and more.
Sasaab Lodge Highlights
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.
