There was a certain amount of apprehension about traveling to Kenya, concerns about security, disease, and the overall unknown. Our trepidations were quickly put to rest from the moment we stepped off the 747 in Nairobi and were met by a friendly private Safari Collection representative who took us on a private shuttle ahead of the rest of the passengers...

My friend and I were blessed to be able to travel to Samburu and stay at this amazing lodge. Our "tent" was so incredibly beautiful with the lovely Moroccan design, a beautiful sofa for reading and relaxing and a lovely patio with chaise lounges and a plunge pool. I don't know why but every plunge pool I have ever been...

Sasaab is a fabulaous lodge with excellent facilities for adults or children over at least 10 yrs old. It is set on a dramatic site in the bush with excellent views in most directions. We were given delicious food and looked after brilliantly by the African staff although we did not have the same confidence in Ron the american manager....

At first glance Sasaab Lodge is a collection of traditionally styled bungalows perched on an arid hillside above a dry river bed. But wait, it rains during the night and the river is running a banker again. The lodges are a blend of traditional architecture with a tent inside and a distinctive Moroccan style decor - simply stunning. Perched high...

Sasaab is a hidden gem in the area. The accomodation is just amazing. Totally open enourmous bedrooms covered with mosquito nets at night. Pool. Outdoor bathroom which still secure full privacy (with the exception of elephants looking up from the river and monkeys down from the trees). The team takes care of any question and knows how to make you...

Stayed there for 2 nights in an incredible area. The tents are huge, beautiful with all the confort you can dream. It is more an open loft than a tent as it is so big! The staff is great, very helpful. All the rooms are over the river where the elephants come to drink. Wild animals can be spotted easily....

We spent a couple of nights at Sasaab as part of a special trip to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. To echo what another reviewer has said, words cannot do this place justice.
