Kalama Community


Project description

Saruni Samburu is the only lodge in Kalama Conservancy, and the sole source of income for the communitites found in the area. Since its opening, Saruni Samburu has provided jobs, income, training and guidance for the local Samburu people in the area. At present,over 85% employees at Saruni Samburu come from the local communities and Samburu tribe. They are trained to a high standard to have a long-lasting career in tourism. Many of them have been with Saruni since the first property was opened in 2003 and have  remained over the decades. In addition, Saruni Conservation Fees collected from guests daily, go directly to the community and are exactly allocated to different projects to reduce poverty and improve social-economic condition. By visiting Saruni Samburu, you are directly giving back to the community who protects this beautiful land, improving their quality of life, while at the same time encouraging the purpose for conservation.
