#25 Lenkiyo, Ndoto & Nyiro Mountains

A densely forested chain of impressive granite outcrops reaches out from Mount Kenya to Lake Turkana in the far north. As the surrounding land is semi-arid, bisected by seasonal sand rivers, the Treasure of Lenkiyo, Ndoto and Nyiro mountains is an elevated oasis that attracts the red dressed Samburu pastoralists with their cattle and wildlife alike. A number of conservancies run by the communities have proven successful in combining the necessities of people and game, which offers visitors a unique experience of traditional culture and safari tourism. The boldly shaped mountains are a rock climber's heaven, and hiking or camel trekking tours reward the effort with breathtaking views over the endless plains of northern Kenya. Experience this magical land and share the adoration the Samburu people have for it!
