overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro river ...
Sabuk lodge is located in a huge private area on the edge of Kenya's Northern Territories. .
This luxury safari lodge is perched on a cliff overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River and across the Laikipia plains towards Mount Kenya the views from this lodge are simply humbling.
Each of Sabuk lodge’s six rooms are sympathetic to the surroundings having been built out of stone and thatch with open sides commanding panoramic vistas below and natural furnishings and solar lighting with a spacious veranda with stunning views across the valley.
Although this area of Kenya, in which Sabuk is located, is not associated with vast numbers of big game it is however home to leopard, buffalo, and elephant. Essentially Sabuk lodge is a luxury safari retreat for those seeking a sense of solitude away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life whilst they are on safari. Here in addition to the traditional safari game drive both during the day and at night there are plenty of opportunities to head out on foot, to enjoy a bush breakfast or sundowner after exploring the valleys below the lodge.
The Laikipia plains are an important part of the Ewaso ecosystem which is bigger than all of Kenya’s other protected areas with the exception of Tsavo. This area is home to the second largest elephant population in Kenya and Laikipia is one wildlife region that continually is recording an increase to wildlife populations. In addition to this Laikipia has eight rhino sanctuaries which are home to more than half of the Black Rhino in Kenya. The region is also home to the endangered Grevy’s zebra and the reticulated giraffe alongside the only viable population of Lelwel hartebeest in Kenya. Despite all of these delicate niches and Laikipia’s amazing biodiversity it is surprisingly ye to be a protected region.
At Sabuk lodge you’ll be able to leave vehicles behind and get back to nature with walks along the river, accompanied by the local Laikipiak Maasai guides, who pass on their knowledge and traditional uses of the flora in the area. Guests enjoy picnics in the shade by the river, a refreshing dip in the natural rock pools below camp or just basking on the main deck overlooking the plains, lulled by the sound of the river which flows all year round. Whilst at Sabuk you will enjoy the company of one of the excellent Samburu guides who will ensure that you see the best of what this region has to offer.
Sabuk is also the base for full walking and camel safaris. 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. For those wishing a slightly more sedentary stay there is also fabulous fishing and relaxation around the lodge pool to enjoy.
Sabuk lodge gives back to the local area with a per person fee which they give directly to the local community that adjoins Sabuk land. Additionally there is a small shop that sells crafts sourced from the local village women.
