Sabora Tented Camp represents a return to an enchanted time. For those who had the adventurous spirit and the means to go on safari in their grandest manner, the 1920s and 30s were a golden age. Now at Sabora, that bygone era lives on in a setting of overwhelming grandeur: a plain that spans the horizon, a great blue vault of sky overhead and the age-old passage of wildlife beyond numbering. To be so close to such an elemental and primordial world is unforgettable. To experience it in such comfort and style is the unique promise of Sabora. The camp consists of nine luxury tents, viewing deck and dining room.

Sasakwa Lodge rambles along a rocky promontory perched above the rolling plains. It is among the most deluxe accommodations ever built in East Africa.

Were Karen Blixen, the author of Out of Africa, to arrive at Sasakwa today, she would recognise a spot imbued with the same aesthetic that she lavished on her beloved home in the Ngong hills outside Nairobi.
