Nestled amongst fever trees in the shadow of Mount Kenya, the brand new Sanctuary Tambarare, opened in June 2022, delivers the perfect balance of adventure and serenity. Tambarare, meaning ‘plains’ in Swahili, looks out across the grassy plateau of the award-winning Ol Pejeta Conservancy, 90,000 acres of unspoilt African landscape, where the Big Five roam, including the last two northern white rhinos on earth.

The camp is accessible by air:

  • Flight from Wilson Airport to Nanyuki Airstrip & transfer from Nanyuki Airstrip to camp (approx 2 hours from Wilson)
  • Flight from Wilson Airport to Kamok Airstrip & Transfer from Kamok Airstrip to camp (approx 1 hour from Wilson)
  • Road transfer times: Drive from Nairobi to Sanctuary Tambarare approximately 4-5 hours


With just 10 luxurious guest tents, Sanctuary Tambarare is a peaceful haven that reflects its surroundings – with a generous helping of indulgence, – Traditional tents with lashings of luxury. The en-suite individually decorated canvas tents have a boutique-meets-bush style that harks back to the golden age, updated with contemporary style, from teak floors to unique touches that reflect the local culture. Each luxury guest tent is spacious and airy,  a private veranda overlooks the scenic plains. Gently billowing white curtains add to the romance, with Masai-inspired art in traditional blue – representing the sky and precious rainwater. The tents offer floor-to-ceiling cinematic views of the landscape from the super king beds. The tents en-suite facilities have walk-in showers, double basins and sumptuous towels.

Main Areas

The camp’s colours are inspired by nature, from ‘sun-bleached’ wood and wicker lampshades to intense bursts of colour in the exuberant fabrics. Inside the spacious and beautifully appointed main tent, inviting sofas and chairs encourage guests to linger. The tented ceiling and soft lighting create a sophisticated ambience. The lounge looks out onto the boma, where guests can gather to hear thrilling tales and local legends shared by the camp’s safari guides.
