Sabuk Lodge is a luxury eco-friendly lodge that is situated in a private game reserve in the Northern Laikipia Plateau in Kenya. It is sustainably constructed out of locally sourced wood and stone, so it has a quirky feel. As it is on a private nature reserve, this lodge in Kenya can offer many alternative activities to enjoy on an East African safari holiday.
Guests can spot wildlife such as Reticulated Giraffe from the back of Camels which can go on safari where the game drives cannot. Alternately, head out on foot with an armed Samburu guide and learn about bird calls, how to track animals and which plants can heal or be used to make poison arrows. Go swimming in the Ewaso Nyiro River or have hours of fun river tubing.
The lodge works closely with the local community and has many conservation initiatives. Guests can visit the traditional homesteads of the Samburu and Laikipak Maasai to learn about their pastoral way of life. The Laikipia area has more endangered wildlife than anywhere else in Kenya. Chances of seeing Black Rhino are good and there is a thriving population of African Wild Dogs.
