CHALBI DESERT SAFARI EXPERIENCE:JULY 30TH TO 2ND AUGUST
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 1: Nairobi to Marsabit
Depart early from Nairobi 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. Camp at the park gate for the night.
Day 2: Marsabit to Chalbi Desert – Kalacha Oasis – North Horr
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. Its the perfect place to find your peace after a long stay in the city.
Day 3: North Horr – Ngurunit
Leaving the desert 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.
Day 4: Ngurunit to Nairobi
In the morning enjoy breakfast at camp. You may head up for a morning swim at the rock pool. Depart later in the day for Nairobi arriving early in the evening.
