Sabuk is set in a huge private area on the edge of Kenya's Northern Territories. The camp is perched on a cliff, and overlooks the Ewaso Nyiro River and across the Laikipia plains towards Mount Kenya.
Accommodation & Facilities
The camp is sympathetic to its surroundings with many beautiful personal touches. There are just six rooms at the camp, and Eagle Cottage (a family cottage). Each of the stone and thatch rooms is open sided, with en suite facilities, solar power lighting and a spacious verandah with impressive views across the valley. Each is slightly differently furnished. Eagle Cottage has two bedrooms (both en-suite), an adjoining sitting room and it's own swimming pool. There is a large dining area and bar, both of which have similarly stunning views to those from the rooms.
Wildlife & Activities
Whilst not traditionally associated with big game, the area is home to leopard, buffalo and elephant. Activities at Sabuk include vehicle based game drives, night game drives, bush breakfasts and sundowners. Guided walking safaris from the camp are a good way of seeing the area, and the animals which inhabit it. They can be as long or as short as you want, generally finishing around lunchtime, leaving the warm afternoons for line fishing, swimming in the river or relaxing by the pool. The guide is accompanied by a camp team of Laikipia Masai who know the area intimately. The equipment is carried by camels, which are traditionally used in this area as beasts of burden.
