One of the most interesting things about Northern Kenya is it’s vastness that keeps secrets. In August 2021, with a local guide from Mt Ng’iro area, they happen to mention about a hill filled with sand where they used to slide atop of basins. The description seemed quite interesting and we decided to proceed and explore.
To our pleasant suprise we found a huge hill covered by fine sand, what we’d call a hill dune. Checking on Google there shows to have existed a tourist camp, Loibor Seder Tourist camp. We looked around for any existing infrastructure but only came upon a makuti shade, that remains of the camp.
The dune is a pleasant attraction, that would take the average person 8 to 15 minutes to get to the top. 10 to 15 minutes taking photos and resting. Another, 5 minutes coming down. This would provide a 30 minutes excursion as a part of a longer itinerary. Our guests, enroute to Tuum, Mt Kulal and Kargi never miss the attraction.
The Loibor Seder dune complex occurs between two hills, the sand collects on the southern hill. The hills are part of the continuation of the Matthew ranges, that become Ndoto mountains and later, Nyiro mountains.
Here are some photos that we have taken on sevaral trips enroute.
