Set most dramatically on a cliff overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River which flows past the Lodge, Sabuk is remote and beautiful ... an alluring haven on the edge of the Northern Frontier District. Sabuk offers stunning views of the Laikipia plains towards Mount Kenya and northwards to the Karissia Hills and is a natural haven of peace, tranquility and the ultimate safari experience. This is a hilly area with dense acacia bush and host to a prolific amount of game which varies according to the season.
Situated in the Northern Frontier District, overlooking the Laikipia Plateau, Ewaso Nyiro River and Samburu land.
Accommodation and facilities:
Guests are accommodated in five delightful cottages, all of which are open at the front to allow stunning views of the river and cliffs. Each thatched rondavel (circular cottage) has its own unique design, crafted from local stone and ancient cedar and olivewood, gathered from the local area. All enjoy full en suite bathrooms with modern flush toilets. A delightful secluded and private veranda with a view makes each cottage a haven in itself. Guests here will be treated to a variety of delicious “bush meals” served in the dining area or eaten alfresco under the awe inspiring African sky.
Activities include game drives through the hilly countryside around camp and guided walks with camels to explore the area. Guests can also enjoy bush breakfasts and sundowners with the added treat of a night game drive back to camp afterwards, looking out for the nocturnal bushbabies and aardvark close by.
Sabuk is also the base for full walking and camel safaris. These are led by a professional safari guide and his team of Laikipiak trekkers, guests can choose to fly-camp out in the wilderness for one or several nights before returning to the home comforts of the lodge.
