Sabuk Lodge

Sabuk is remote and beautiful…an exclusive wilderness on the edge of the Northern Laikipia Plateau; perched on a cliff overlooking the Ewaso Nyiro River, which cascades beneath the lodge all year round. Sabuk, which remains a family home, offers wilderness and stunning views of the Laikipia plains towards Mount Kenya, as well as the Karisa Hills and Mathews Mountains in the North.

Sabuk is all about the fabulous camel walks and safaris with fly camps together with a rich cultural experience and heartbeat. Majestic nights spent out under starry skies , rolling hills and adventures,moments of anticipation, excitement shared with your guides and safari team. Sabuk have been running camel safaris in this area for the past 25 years.




Trek through the wildernesss on camel back, as you and your camel-train stop off over night along river banks under the star-lit African night sky. 

The remote location allows you to have a private safari experiene, not surronded by tens of other tourists or safari cars. 


Camel safaris can last just a day as you expolre the surronding area, stop off for lunch by the cool of the river and the shade of rivierine trees. Longers camel safaris can be arranged with fly-camping along the route.  No extra cost to staying the night at Sabuk!
