Into the Northern Frontier
Explore the rugged Sera Conservancy, in Kenya’s wild and truly unspoilt Northern Frontier landscapes on this adventure that combines walking, wild sleepouts, rhino tracking and authentic cultural encounters. Wildlife exists alongside people here. It’s not uncommon to see a gerenuk or giraffe browsing and turn the corner moments later to meet a herdsman with his goats or camels.
Each adds pressure on the other for grazing, water and space, offering visitors a real-life insight into the challenges in balancing wildlife and habitat conservation with human needs — a balance that the Sera Conservancy and Northern Rangeland Trust are working tirelessly to find, to enable both to thrive. Your guide, Alex, was one of the founders of Sera and his history here offers a unique insight into this land and its people.
On this adventure, you will learn first-hand about wildlife conservation at the community-run Reteti Elephant Sanctuary and the Sera rhino sanctuary. You’ll also get to sleep out on a bedroll on a rock, explore this wild landscape on walking safaris and watch an age-old tradition as Samburu and Rendille herdsmen bring their cattle to water at ancient wells.
Witness a congregation of tens of thousands of sandgrouse collecting water in their feathers before flying up to 40 kilometres back to their nests. Seasoned travellers looking for an authentic adventure, digital detox and the chance to witness sights that few travellers have had the privilege will not be disappointed here.
