Additional information

Lake Turkana & The Nile Perch

An utterly unique place, Turkana is, at least for now, unspoiled by development or environmental problems.The Lake is naturally very saline because it has no outlet and a very high evaporation rate and so the series of dams upstream will in all likely hood alter the ecology of the lake itself (because so much more of the evaporation will now happen upstream). Driving to Turkana its all really not for the light hearted traveler or those seeking an easy no-problems vacation.The Flyfishing potential up here is huge and in the more protected National Parks along the lake you might expect to have the best chance hooking into a big Perch.

Sibiloi National Park

For the more adventurous, the long road North leads to Sibiloi,a 1600 square km National Park recently accorded World Heritage Status. This park is a real surprise after a long desert journey- there is plenty of open green, grassland- and plenty of game. Zebra, Topi, Giraffe, Ostrich, Hippo and the occasional Lion and Cheetah have all been sighted in the park.

Mugie Sanctuary

Mugie is 46,000 acres but 22,000 acres have been set aside to create Mugie Sanctuary.
The Mugie sanctuary is home to around seventy species of mammal including lion, cheetah, leopard, buffalo, elephant, eland and hyena. We have many endangered species residing on Mugie including the Grevys zebra and Jacksons Hartebeest

Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust

This is home to the proud Samburu people, a group of semi-nomadic pastoralists who have long shown tolerance for the wildlife that co-exists alongside their cattle. Sarara sits on community-owned land, outside the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

The Trust was set up in 1995 specifically to promote wildlife conservation and to assist the local community to benefit from tourism, in return for protecting the wildlife species living on their land.

The conservation work carried out by the Namunyak Trust to date has been hugely successful. Today, several thousand elephant are recorded as living and breeding peacefully in the southern Mathews Range area, together with a variety of other wildlife species such as buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah, African wild dog, greater and lesser kudu, gerenuk, reticulated giraffe, impala and dik dik.

The Mathews Range

The Mathews is characterized by steep topography and granite outcrops that make most of the area inaccessible. The highest point of the Mathews Range is Warges Peak which stands at 2,688 meters above sea level. The forest is known for being in the best condition of all the sky island forests in northern Kenya.
This is primarily due to its remote location, rugged steep terrain which precludes easy access and traditional compatible use of the forest.

Singing Wells of Samburu

In the sand river, Samburu's dig a hole just deep enough until they find water and then they take a bucket or an old vegetable oil tin and fill it with water for their stock. Of course, as the dry season goes on, the water is harder to come by and the hole gets deeper and deeper. Eventually it might be 15 or 20 feet deep, necessitating a chain of three or four lmurran passing the bucket from hand to hand, all while they sing a lilting chant that reverberates all along the sand river where four or five other groups of warrior herdsmen are doing the same thing. For this reason, they are called the singing wells.
