Day 3: Sabache – Reteti – Ngurunit

After our breakfast, we depart for a fantastic drive as we begin to move away from civilization. For the next few days the off road routes in the desert and dirt roads will dominate! Our destination is the tiny and picturesque Ngurunit, a village at the foot of the Ndoto Mountains where we will arrive when the sun is about to hide behind them creating an idyllic atmosphere. Earlier we will visit the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, an amazing community-run project that has saved dozens of elephants. Overnight in a single or double tent at a campsite in Ngurunit (dinner and breakfast included).

Day 4: Ngurunit – Nachola

Morning awakening and the start of another wonderful day of exploring the magnificent Northern Kenya! Today we will head further north, to Baragoi, through an unlikely route along the impressive Milgis River, where we meet nomadic herders of the Rendille, Samburu and others. We will learn a lot about their way of life and enjoy an amazing landscape with the feeling that time has stopped. In the afternoon we will reach the village of Nachola inhabited by people of the Turkana tribe. We will spend the night under the starry African sky, at the beautiful, communal “Kalomudang” campsite (overnight in a single or double tent, dinner and breakfast included).

Day 5: Nachola

Overnight at the camp (lunch, dinner and breakfast included)

Day 6: Nachola – Loiyangalani (Lake Turkana)

After another idyllic morning at camp, our Lake Turkana adventure begins! Words can hardly describe the drive to Lake Turkana, the largest permanent desert lake in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dominating the far northern edge of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, Lake Turkana shimmers in the heart of an unreal landscape of volcanic boulders, cinder cones, black sand beaches and the world’s largest population of crocodiles in its verdant waters. Our destination is Loiyangalani, a tiny village on the eastern shore of the lake and meeting point of the big northern tribes, Turkana, Samburu, Gabbra and El Molo (overnight in single or double rooms in guesthouse, dinner and breakfast).

Day 7: Lake Turkana

We will visit a nearby rocky and wild islet, shelter of thousands of seagulls, where the unreal atmosphere will captivate you. Afterwards, we will visit the Desert Museum and the village of El Molo, one of the smallest tribes in Africa that lives on the shores of the lake. Overnight at the same guesthouse in Loiyangalani (dinner and breakfast).

Day 8: Loiyangalani – Karare

Morning wake up and departure from Lake Turkana with today’s final destination Karare, a village in Marsabit province. Our route will be exciting and eerie as we cross hundreds of kilometers through vast expanses of desert. Spiny desert plants and flowers, golden red sand and rock formations and people in their traditional costumes make up the images we will encounter passing through the villages of Kargi and Korr. Arriving in Karare, we will spend the night in an idyllic ecological campsite in the African savannah. (overnight stay in double tents, dinner and breakfast included).

Day 9: Karare

Today we will have the opportunity to relax in the absolute tranquility of our wonderful guest house and then wander the area around Karare. We will listen to the local life and interact authentically with the locals. If the conditions (weather and other local events) and our mood allow it, there is a possibility to visit Marsabit National Park (extra activity). The beautiful Marsabit NP is located on a densely forested mountain and three lakes formed in volcanic craters that provide a unique refuge for a variety of birds, mammals and reptiles. Overnight at the same campsite (dinner and breakfast included).

Day 10: Karare – Nanyuki

Today we will start the long way back heading south to Nanyuki. It is a city in the province of Laikipia that runs through equator!
