Saruni Rhino is an exclusive and intimate camp located in Kenya’s wild North in Sera Community Conservancy, 350,000 hectares of unspoiled wilderness, a little under 2 hours from our Saruni Samburu lodge in nearby Kalama Conservancy. Saruni Rhino is a 3-banda camp.
A banda is a rustic stone cottage with a thatched roof and canvas roll down windows. All bandas have flushing toilets, hot & cold water and natural stone showers.
