Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy
The Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, an area of 850,000 acres of pristine wilderness in the Mathews Range. The savannah plains and lush mountain slopes are home to elephant, leopard, reticulated giraffe, wild dog and kudu in ever increasing numbers. This remote and dramatic landscape is also home to the local Samburu people whose age-old traditions, including the famed ‘singing wells’ are as much a part of the fabric of this land as the wildlife.
The green paradise forest of the northern Frontier displays a unique blend in the midst of the arid plateau. There are different varieties of butterflies recorded here not forgetting the birds. Its an amazing night sighting for Elephants, Cape buffalos, bushbucks and the elusive leopard which visit the river at the front of the Kitich Camp.
The conservancy is best for forest walks, honeymoon and cultural visits to Samburu villages.
