Sasaab is close to the Buffalo Springs National Reserves, in Kenya’s Northern Frontier District. It is a place of rich natural diversity with an astounding number of animals from the huge majestic elephant to lion, leopard, cheetah and the Samburu Special Five which are the Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Gerenuk antelope and Somali ostrich.
The architecture of Sasaab follows strong Moroccan design principles, in which African heat is of primary consideration. Each of the Moroccan styled rooms is equipped with an enormous open-air bathroom and private plunge pool. From the veranda, guests can take in the remarkable views across the Laikipia Plateau toward the jagged peak of Mount Kenya.
