Amazing Family Friendly Retreat: Sasaab Lodge Samburu

We are always glad to introduce to you amazing, and mostly underrated destinations in Kenya. Sasaab Lodge Samburu is one of the most beautiful places you can visit in the Northern part of Kenya. Set in the Samburu Wilderness, this natural lodge will give you unmatched views, uninterrupted quiet and worth for every coin you spend. Here is more:


Sasaab Lodge was named after a white flowering Shrub that commonly grows in the Samburu desert. It boasts of luxurious open rooms designed in the Moroccan and Swahili styles. Apart from the beauty that these designs boast of, they are also architecturally built to create natural air conditioning in the heat experienced in these areas.


Sasaab Lodge has beautiful rooms that are ideal for singular or group travellers with special rooms for families and honeymooners as well. Each room has a grand open space bathroom that allows you to enjoy the views as you refresh for the day. There is also a plunge pool in each room which helps you cool off during very hot days, which are common in this region. There are tent options as well for those who enjoy being one with nature.

Bar and Restaurant

The lodge has amazing indoor and terrace dining spaces where guests can enjoy a variety of foods and drinks while basking in the glorious views. The unique thing about the lodge is that all stays are full board. Therefore, as a guest, all you have to worry about is relaxing and having a great time.


Another amazing feature about the Sasaab lodge is the intricate childcare services. This is not common in most destinations. There are babysitting options where you can leave your child to enjoy with other children. The Samburu Morans who are surprisingly good with the kids get to teach them different tricks and skills including how to make bows and arrows. Special diets can also be arranged for them as per your requests.

Spa and Wellness

The Spasaab is a must attend during your stay at the lodge. Get to relax and have a rejuvenation session for your skin, hair, nails and body in general. There are special packages tailored particularly for couples on their honeymoon vacation. The best part about these spa sessions is the breath-taking views of the Ewaso Nyiro.

Other activities

While at the Sasaab, there are several other things you can take part in including:

  • Cultural visits to Samburu villages where you will get to learn about their amazing ways of life.
  • Camel rides through the Samburu wilderness.
  • Game drives where you will get to see the Samburu big five i.e., Gerenuk, Oryx, Grevy’s Zebra, Somali Ostrich and Reticulated Giraffes. Other common sights include elephants, lions, cheetahs and leopards.
  • Walks along the Ewaso Nyiro.
  • Fly-camping and stargazing.

The Sasaab Lodge is a perfect retreat destination but it also offers spacious grounds and natural views for weddings.
