      Mathews Range

      A Remote Sky Island in Northern Kenya

      Rising up from the brown plains of northern Kenya like a green tropical island is the spectacularly untouched wilderness of the Mathews Range: running nearly 100 miles north-south, and approaching 8,000 feet above sea level at Ol Doinyo Lenkiyo. Surrounded by vast expanses of flat lands in all directions, the area has been isolated from human encroachment, beyond the occasional search for medicinal plants by the neighboring Samburu. This isolation has resulted in a healthy ecosystem, secluded oases for wildlife during the dry season, and unusual plant and insect species hidden amidst the forests of junipers and cyads. Be one of the lucky few to enjoy some of East Africa’s finest walking safaris, birdwatching, or interacting with the local Samburu tribe. Elephant, buffalo and leopard are also present, as well as lesser kudu antelope, and African wild dogs.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
