This is arguably the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle, and is officially one of the natural wonders of the world.

Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust was established in 1995 and is located in the Mathews Range of northern Kenya in Wamba Division in Samburu East District. Namunyak (meaning â€œPlace of Peaceâ€?) originally operated on the Sarara and Sabache Group Ranches that joined together to manage their land as one unit for conservation. The Trust has now expanded to include six group ranches, including the Ngiai West Group Ranch and the trust land area of Ndonyo Wasin. The responses by these new communities towards wildlife conservation have been immensely positive. The mission of Namunyak is to promote wildlife conservation and the socio-economic development of the Samburu community through sustainable utilization of natural resources. Specific objectives include ensuring grassroots involvement in decision making of the Trust, improving environmental awareness in surrounding communities, augmenting physical security for wildlife, people and livestock in the area, maintaining and enhancing natural resources in the area,Â and providing income to local communities through the establishment of sustainable enterprises.
Sarara Camp Sarara has six luxury tents, each positioned to maximise the stunning views of the Mathews Range of mountains and the animal watering hole. Preserving the romance of the tented camp, these tents are spacious and high ceilinged, with plenty of cupboard space, electric lighting and 24 hour hot and cold running water. There is an outdoor bathroom offering a superb view of the hills from the shower. But there is also an indoor toilet and sink at the back of the tent. Each tent has its own private terrace with table and chairs and morning coffee and tea are brought to you so that you can wake up gazing out over the mountains. Sarara has established itself as one of the 'hot spots' for quality leopard viewing in Africa and equally, for close-up sightings of the normally extremely shy lesser kudu antelope. The African wild dogs are frequently encountered in the Sarara valley too. Unusual sightings include striped hyena, aardwolf, civet cat, African wild cat, greater kudu, grevy zebra and cheetah.
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
The Craig/Douglas family first came to Lewa Downs in 1922, and managed it as a cattle ranch for over 50 years. A passionate man, David Craig, is quoted as requesting to his sons, Ian and Will, that no matter what happened with the family business there would always be room for wildlife, hence the family’s early venture into wildlife tourism. As the plight of the black rhino became desperate in Africa, the ranch was converted into the Ngare Sergoi Rhino Sanctuary. With the enthusiastic support and funding of cofounder, Anna Merz, the sanctuary operated for more than 10 years. Then in 1995 Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (“Lewa”) was established as a not-for-profit organization. Spanning 62,000 acres, Lewa is home to over 10 percent of Kenya’s black rhino population, over 14 percent of Kenya’s white rhino population and the world’s largest single population of Grevy’s zebra. Lewa has embodied its mission as a catalyst for conservation. With a proven track record, their model of community-based conservation development is being spearheaded across northern Kenya, and emulated by other East African conservation organizations.
Lewa Mobile Tented Camp Our Mobile camp is set up in a secluded camp site under a beautiful acacia canopy. Each tent is equipped with full sized singles or king size beds, Egyptian cotton & down duvet, thick foam mattresses, and 240 volt electric lighting based on a solar system. The tents are each en-suite with hot showers and an adjacent conventional toilet. There are a variety of activities available at Lewa to keep you well entertained: day and night game drives, bush walks, optional day or overnight camel safaris (subject to availability), educational talks on the Conservancy and related issues, visits to the Il N'gwesi Maasai cultural boma, walking safaris, optional Flights to Lake Rutundu on Mt. Kenya for trout fishing (optional), conservation orientated activities, which include visits to Lewa supported schools; visits to water schemes and other community development activities; days or half days out with the research department learning about Lewa's Rhino and Grevy Zebra projects; accompanying the tracker dogs on daily training/exercise; accompanying the lion trackers to get data on Lewa's resident lion project and trips to the adjoining Ngare Ndare forest to look for the elusive Colobus monkey population and to learn about the indigenous flora and its local uses.
Enasoit Enasoit, a 10,000 acre ranch belonging to a Norwegian Shipping Baron, is a private game sanctuary boasting abundant game, birdlife and beautiful scenery, with regular sighting of elephant, lion, buffalo, giraffe, etc and a resident pair of white rhino. Enasoit tented camp is an exclusive luxury tented camp with six sleeping tents, all ensuite, with large verandahs and a spacious comfortable mess tent with a built in fireplace, for the cooler evenings. Rustically constructed to blend in with the environment both in canvas and permanent materials found in the area. The camp overlooks a waterhole and two salt licks, frequented by many animals. The two salt licks barely 70 meters from the campfire are lit up at night offering a different game viewing experience. You will never be short of things to do. They are plenty of activities you can enjoy at Enasoit including; game drives, guided walks, horse riding, sundowners and night drives, as well as the availability of two open 4WD buggies to travel up and down to the pool.
Mara Mobile Tented Camp The Maasai Mara is without question one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth. The variety of species, and the sheer numbers provide an unending feast for oneâ€™s safari appetite. The reserve borders Tanzania and the two countries share the vast Serengeti plains, with wildlife free to roam between Kenya and Tanzania in search of food. The concentration of game in the Mara during the mass migration is mind blowing, and this is one of the few areas where you are likely to see the big five - buffalo, elephant, rhino, lion and leopard. Our luxury mobile camps are every bit as comfortable as can be whilst retaining the appeal and flexibility of being able to position the camp in any place we choose. Our Maasai Mara Camp is situated upon the shaded banks of a big lazy bend in the Sand River where a portion of the great migration crosses from the nearby Serengeti/Tanzanian border into Kenya. Fortunately during the migration, the two million strong migration will be in our area, so the crossings will provide suitable amounts of entertainment as we spend the heat of the day in camp
