Samatian is the “Mid-Safari break” Destination in Kenya, and a longtime popular favorite of locals. Guests may relax in the sun and clear blue water of our solar pool while taking in 360 degree views of the volcanic Rift Valley mountains surrounding Baringo. Visitors may also choose to experience some of the unique excursions and activities suited to each guests desires and energies.
