For the last couple of Months we have taken a number of trips to Central North Kenya (Samburu, Marsabit and Lake Turkana). We have learnt a lot from the diverse groups in each trip. Private trips for family or friends or chamas are easy as the guests have a number of things in common. In group trips where a guest purchases a seat, it’s hard to consolidate shared interests.

After much listening, our team has created a trip that includes accommodation and transport with optional activities that guests may decide to take on each day.

Some of the attractions include; Chalbi Desert, Mt Ololokwe, Mathews Range, Ndoto Mountains, the Sacred Nyiro Mountains, Ngurunit Springs and Rock Slides. Mt Kulal UNESCO protected Biosphere, pre historical Rock and cave paintings, Desert Musuem, Koobi Fora Paleontological sites and Omo bay. Crater lakes (includes popular lake paradise), Sand dunes, Oasis, Marsabit park, Sibiloi park, Lake Turkana wind farm, Central Islands and Southern Islands.

Cultural experiences include traditional festivals like Sorio (passover like festival), traditional weddings, singing wells, Elmolo villages, Gabra villages, Samburu Villages and Rendille villages.
