Sabuk is perched on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River in northern Laikipia overlooking the beautiful bush scenery and rocky river below. This remote and beautiful land is a great location to enjoy walking safaris and fly camping among the big game populations of the area. The Laikipia Plateau stretches from the Aberdares to the Northern Frontier District and the Mathews Range and is home to a diversity of wildlife and culture.
Sabuk Lodge consists of just six cottages and a two-bedroom family unit. Each of the open-sided cottages is en-suite and boasts fabulous views from their private verandas. The Eagle Cottage is the most ideal accommodation for families with its two bathrooms, large sitting, private dining area, and private plunge pool facilities. The entire lodge was constructed from local materials and designed to complement the surrounding landscape of Laikipia.
Unlike the National Parks, Sabuk is situated on private land, which means there are no rules about staying in a vehicle. Visitors are encouraged to get up close to the scenery and wildlife on foot or camel and without the rush or noise of other safari vehicles. While game drives are certainly possible, Sabuk places an especially strong emphasis on walking safaris with the highly trained Laikipia Maasai guides, placing guests in the center of the sights and sounds of the wilderness. Here, guests are invited to be a part of Africa, not just witness it. The Laikipia Maasai and Samburu, among others, make their home in area around Sabuk amid greater kudu, reticulated giraffe, buffalo, impala, elephant, klipspringer, zebra, eland, dik dik, waterbuck, lion, leopard, hyena, and wild dog. Bird watching is also excellent in Laikipia, and in season, the river holds a number of exciting opportunities like swimming, tubing, and fishing. Bush breakfasts and sundowners are possible, as are private meals on request.
For clients spending three or more days at Sabuk, there is an excellent fly camping option with five tents available. Those who take advantage of fly camping will walk with a professional guide, a team of camels, and trained Laikipia Maasai warriors into deserted wilderness areas and camp under the stars with just the wildlife and breathtaking scenery around them—a truly memorable way to experience the beauty of Kenya.Request Information
