The feel of the Lodge was definitely Moroccan. Beautiful setting over the Ewaso River, with huge open public areas, a pool that hung over the cliffs above the water, and your own infinity pools at your palatial tents. Jess and Oliver were stellar managers while we were there, seeing to every one of our needs. Our guides Daniel and Jeremy...

Our visit was amazing. We loved Ron & Margaret @ Sasaab. Eric our driver & Samuel our spotter were absolutely endearing and we are staying in touch with them.

My husband and I just visited Sasaab on our honeymoon. We were there for 2 nights and our only regret was not staying longer.

I was so lucky to have had the pleasure of staying at this magical part of the world whilst visiting with a group of dentists in May 2014.

Sasaab is a very upscale "camp". When first entering our tent, my breath was taken away by the elegance, views, and sheer luxury. The entire stay was perfect, in addition to safari and game watching, we visited a local village and a goat killing ceremony. The guides were excellent, but the overall facilities and operations of the camp were perfect.

We won a three night stay here as part of the Sunday Times travel competition, and it was truly exceptional. The lodge was absolutely stunning, and we loved having our own private plunge pool (freezing cold but perfect after a hot and dusty game drive!) with views over the riverbed. The rooms are very open but designed so that they...

Not sure what you meant be this question?

1. Check with Sasaab lodge for duration or packages

2. Would there be enough to see or do for a 7 day stay? Depends...if it is recreational safari I'm not sure...3days were good for us...saw a lot of wildlife and terrain. Also we went to another safari in Tanzania. If you are into photography or other special interests maybe yes. Sasaab is a wonderful lodge... Very comfortable, food excellent and relaxing. Staff was beyond great!
