AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN NORTHERN FRONTIER WITH AFRICANMECCA
The most popular activity, though, is a game drive through the bush, and without the restrictions of other protected areas, you may also partake of a night game drive. Imagine seeing the Northern Frontier wildness under the cover of darkness where stealthy predators, such as leopards, hyenas and others, emerge from the shadows as they stalk their prey. Even the grazers and foragers demonstrate distinct behaviors at night than what is observed during the day.
Other ways to have an uncommon AfricanMecca safari at Sarara are fly camping, bird watching, nature walks, bush pony safaris and much more. Engage yourself in the culture of the Samburu people with village visits, walking to the Singing Wells, bead crafting with the tribeswomen, to name only distinct activities, as well as watching the IL Konono blacksmiths use ancient techniques for making spears and other metal items.
For a more intimate AfricanMecca experience in the Matthews Mountain Range and Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, Kitich offers guided walks through the forest lead by a Samburu guide; though, there are no game drives at Kitich. Listen intently as your guide shares detailed information about the cycads, hardwood trees, orchids and other flora, as well as smaller denizens, such as butterflies and more than 350 species of birds.
For an especially delightful day tour of East Africa’s Northern Frontier (read more on where to stay), combine a walking safari with a picnic in the bush and refreshing swim in the rock pools, and end your day with sundowners in the Northern Frontier wilderness. During these activities, you learn more about the Samburu, and you may extend your understanding by visiting a local village to watch how these indigenous people live day-to-day, following traditions that have been integrated into their lifestyles for generations.
The activities at Desert Rose include camel walks, guided walks, visiting local Samburu villages, rock climbing, fishing and much more. Further north of the Kenyan border, you will explore the unique archaeological and cultural treasures found at Lake Turkana, Koobi Fora and Sibiloi National Park, and even Chalbi Desert and Suguta Valley. Bring out your inner paleontologist, anthropologist and archaeologist curiosities at Sibiloi National Park.
Learn about early human history at some of the world’s most important fossil sites. Continue your scientific tour at Koobi Fora – north of Allia Bay. Since 1969, the area has brought to light some of the most notable archaeological finds in history, and you can walk in the footsteps of some of the most well-known archaeologists, such as Dr. Richard Leakey, Bernard Ngeves, Kimoya Kimeu, to name a few. After your exclusive study of human history, explore Lake Turkana to learn about some of the flora and fauna of the Northern Frontier and optionally aerial trip over Central Island.
For guests who desire expeditions in more extreme environments, AfricanMecca can also arrange for you to explore the Chalbi Desert and Suguta Valley with prior notice. In Lake Turkana, you can also experience varied tribal cultures, from villages of the Turkana, Gabra, Pokot, Ariaal, Dassanech, Rendille to Samburu and El Molo scattered across the desert and lake wilderness.
