What you need to know:

  • We were at Saruni Samburu, which has the most dramatic location of any lodge I have ever stayed in.

  • It’s like an eagle’s eyrie high on Kalama Mountain and overlooking the 200,000 acres of the Kalama Conservancy.

We woke to the roar of a lion. Well, my wife did. When I eventually opened my eyes, she told me she was sure it was a lion. Maybe it was, because on a game drive the previous evening, we saw a lioness leaving the waterhole way down on the plain below our villa.
