The Borana, Samburu and Turkana people that inhabit this area are truly nomadic, so sometimes there are villages conveniently close to camp, and sometimes they are too far to visit! Of Kenya’s colourful peoples they are probably some of the most traditional, herding sheep, cattle, goats and camels, and passing on their stories and customs through song.
Most of the staff in camp are from the Borana community, with striking very hansom features and brightly coloured clothes.
A full day out with picnic lunch, the crater has natural salt pans which are mined by the local women. A colourful scene reminiscent of ancient times!
