Lake Turkana Northeast


... is an extremely remote and truly wild area of Northern Kenya, lying around 450km due north of Mount Kenya and running north to the border with Ethiopia.

Sibiloi National Park is an extremely remote and little-visited reserve, with tortuous access and virtually no facilities. This is where the Leakey family discovered some of the oldest known hominid remains, just part of a trove of fossils to be found in the area.

There is also wildlife here, although in the kind of low densities that one would expect in such a barren and arid area. Elephants, rhinos, lions and cheetahs are all present, but giraffes, zebras and ostriches are more commonly seen.

We love the remote wilderness areas of Northern Kenya, the scenery really is quite remarkable in parts. However visitor numbers are exceedingly low, largely due to political instability in the region and the near constant threat of Somali bandits.

The only way that we are presently able to access the area is by light aircraft out of places such as Sarara Camp further to the south, whose experienced owners, the Bastard family, are always aware with the current situation and can make and change plans accordingly.

Such flying expeditions can last anything from a few hours to several days, depending on how much of this remote region you want to explore.

Such trips are usually combined with parts of the Kenya Central region, notably in the Mathew's Range, Laikipia North, Samburu, Il Ngwesi Valley, Lewa Downs and Meru areas, as well as the Maasai Mara way off to the southwest.
