Turnup in Chalbi Desert

  • 5 Days / 4 Nights Northern Kenya Trip

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.

Day 2: Marsabit to Kalacha Oasis to North Horr Sand dunes
Day 3: North Horr to Lake Turkana
Day 4 and 5: Loiyangalani
Day 5: Ngurunit to Nairobi.
Welcome aboard!
Pass by the scenic Timau farms, see Mount Kenya, drive by the sacred Mt Ololokwe, visit Lake Paradise, take on a 4 by 4 adventure in the East Africa’s only true desert, go up the sand dunes in North Horr, cool off at Kalacha Oasis after desert safari with a beer or swim in the pool as you catch the sunset, stargaze and enjoy a boat ride on Lake Turkana to the smallest community called Elmolo, swim in the afternoon, catch the sunset by the lakeside, immerse yourself in cultural experience and breakfast before you pack for Nairobi. It’ll be a memorable trip!
