5 Days Marsabit Chalbi Desert Adventure

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.
