Sanctuary Tambarare, opening June 1, overlooks Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy, in the shadow of Mt Kenya, home to the last two northern white rhinos on earth.
The camp offers 10 large, airy, luxury guest tents, each with a private veranda. Guests can enjoy floor-to-ceiling views of the landscape from king beds.
The camp’s colours are inspired by nature, such as the sun-bleached wood and wicker lampshades. The tented ceiling and soft lighting create a sophisticated ambience.
The restaurant team are happy to attend to guests’ dietary requirements, from vegetarian meals to an anniversary dinner. There is a refined bar tent with a deck and plenty of loungers overlooking the boma.
At Sanctuary Tambarare, guests can explore the conservancy with daily game drives, on which expert guides enrich the experience. In addition to the Big Five and many other animals (including cheetah, hippo and hyena), the conservancy is home to over 130 black rhinos.
At an additional cost and dependant on availability, guests can participate in a variety of activities, including night game drives, rhino encounters and lion tracking. Other guest activities include horse riding, guided bush walks, the Hippo Hide nature trail, viewing chimpanzees, and meeting the K9 anti-poaching unit.
