6 Days Northern Kenya Circuit

Overview

The Northern region of Kenya is vast and scenic. It is the home of a variety of tribes, and has remained comparatively inaccessible until now. Ranging from the lush highland green of the southern side of the Mathews range and Samburu National Park to the red sands of the northern borders with Ethiopia in the Chalbi desert, its terrain is varied, mysterious and extraordinarily beautiful.

The breathtaking landscapes of the National Park are characterised by lush forest, an oasis of green in the midst of an otherwise arid region, and are decorated with extraordinary extinct volcano craters. The Gof Sokorte Guda lies a beautiful lake, fringed with gorgeous woods home to a diversity of prolific bird and butterfly species.

Turkana Basin

Dubbed the Cradle of Humanity, the Turkana Basin in northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia is known for its remarkable archaeological significance.

While there are no hotels in the area, renowned Paleontologist Louise Leakey recently made her research institute, the Turkana Basin Institute, accessible to tourists. Visitors can look forward to staying in one of the institute’s two field centres and having one of the world’s foremost palaeontologists guide them exclusively around the world’s finest repository of fossils.
