5 DAYS ADVENTURE UP NORTH

5 Stars


Overview

OCTOBER 29TH -2 ND NOVEMBER EXPEDITION ITINERARY

INTRODUCTION

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.

PROPOSED ITINERARY

Day 1: Nairobi –Marsabit Depart from Nairobi at 5 am on Land Cruiser and drive north past Nanyuki and the beautiful farmlands of Timau to stop for fuel at Isiolo. Drive north and stopover for photos and sightseeing at Mt. Ololokwe before proceeding to Marsabit, a cool mountain town in the North. Drive up to Lake Marsabit in time to see the animals coming out for an evening drink. The sunset from the hills is also worth the drive. (Overnight stay at Nomads Hotel)

Day 2: Marsabit- Ngurunit (Via Logologo) -Kor-Loiyangalani (Attractions: Ndoto mountains, swimming at the rocks of Dorr at Ngurunit, Desert Museum, and Elmolo community ) Depart Marsabit at 6 am drive south to the beautiful 40Km long Ndoto Mountain range. Surrounded by mountains all round is the oasis village of Ngurunit. Here you will find some nice hills to hike and if not some pleasant pools to enjoy and swim in. It is one of the hardest places to leave after staying over. Beautiful tranquil and mind-blowing. (Overnight stay at Loiyangalani-Palm Shade Hotel)

Day 3: Loiyangalani -North Horr (Chalbi dune, desert drive, Kalacha Oasis) After breakfast embark on crossing the great Chalbi desert. The journey leads you to a beautiful oasis at the edge of the Chalbi desert. The vast landscapes and open desert will amaze you. The crossing with skilled drivers on sand is thrilling. The tour will take you through the Kalacha oasis, a pleasant surprise in the middle of the very arid countryside. Spend the evening in cottages at the edge of the desert. The nights are great for stargazing. It’s the perfect place to find your peace after a long stay in the city.
