What Africa Uncovered says…
Sabuk Lodge offers a safari with a difference. Sabuk combines very well with Kenya’s more prominent safari parks as it offers something completely different. Camel rides, sleeping under the stars and authentic bush walks make this a very special place. Sabuk is a fantastic lodge for families.

Sabuk Lodge Description

Perched high on the riverbanks, Sabuk’s 8 cottages are open at the front with stunning views of the river and cliffs. Each thatched rondavel (circular cottage) has its own unique design, crafted from local stone and ancient cedar and olivewood, gathered from the local area. En-suite bathrooms, modern flush toilets and a private verandah with a view make each cottage a haven in itself.

Sabuk’s has 2 Eagle Cottages which consists of 2 bedrooms each (both en-suite), an adjoining sitting room and it’s own private swimming pool. Both the lodge rooms and the cottage have their own fabulous views. Sabuk was fashioned out of the local landscape, built with local materials, twisted wood and stone boulders incorporated into the architecture. Open walls and private veranda’s face out over the river gorge 150 feet below.


Around Sabuk the area is wild and hilly, with dense acacia bush, Greater Kudu, Reticulated Giraffe, Buffalo, Impala, Elephant, Klipspringer, Zebra, Eland, DikDik, Waterbuck, Lion, Leopard, great bird watching and incredible scenery.

Sabuk is all about leaving your 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. 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.

Activities include game drives through the hilly countryside around camp, guided walks with camels to explore the area; also bush breakfasts and sundowners with the added treat of a night game drive back to camp afterwards, looking out for the nocturnal Bush Babies and Aardvark close by.
