MATTHEWS MOUNTAIN TOUR EXPERIENCES IN THE NORTHERN FRONTIER WITH AFRICANMECCA

Situated in the greater Laikipia wilderness of the Rift Valley is the 150 kilometer long Matthews Mountain Range (aka Lenkiyio Hills). Approximately 900 square kilometers of the forest range is a “biological bonanza on a sky island” as promulgated by the BBC. Fortunately for our safari guests, the incredible biodiversity and unique beauty of Matthews Mountain Range has been explored by few visitors due to the relatively low number of wildlife as compared to other areas in Kenya, as well as the rugged terrain that must be crossed to reach the mountains. The landscape itself is worthwhile, and you may see the three most prominent natural features during your unusual trip to the Northern Frontier with AfricanMecca. Warges is a 2688-meter peak at the southern end of the range while the 2375-meter Ol Doinyo Lenkiyo is the highest peak in the central part of the range. You may also notice a small distinctive hill known as “Sweet Sixteen.” The lush vegetation of the forest is fed by several seasonal streams that crisscross the mountains, as well as the only permanent river – Ewaso Nyiro. The water and food sources attract an increasing number of gazelles, waterbucks, greater kudus, oryxes, grevy’s zebras and many other herbivores, as well as predators such as African wild dogs, leopards, lions to name a few.
