There is a feeling of excitement and anticipation as rosy pink streaks appear in the early grey morning light and the pack camels are being loaded up by the singing Samburu and Turkana camel handlers. The camels chuddar, gurgle and complain loudly as their loads are secured. After an early breakfast at the lodge, set off on this amazing adventure. The Northern Frontier and Laikipia remains very much unspoiled and untouched by human hand. The scenery is dramatic, the people exotic and the birdlife, flora and fauna extraordinary. Walking off into the vast wilderness following the camel train and the chanting Camel handlers is like stepping back 100 years. The four hike generally follows the Ewaso Nyiro River with a chance of seeing elephant, buffalo, greater kudu, oryx, impala, Grevy’s zebra, warthog, and occasionally wild dog. If you tire or need a break, hop up onto the back of one of the camels. The fly camp is simple - tents with mosquito net ceilings to allow for star gazing from bed! There are bedrolls, drop toilets, kerosene lanterns for lighting and bucket showers. Out of the cook’s trunks appear delicious salads, freshly baked breads and plenty of chilled drinks. During the heat of the day rest and then in the late afternoon you can try your hand at line fishing for barbell and catfish. Take a walk out from camp and enjoy some rock climbing, sundowners and great sunsets. As the sun disappears over the inky horizon, the fires are lit, the lanterns set out and the camels are corralled for the evening. After dinner, retire to bed under the star spangled sky, with the gurgle of the river, the camels, tree frogs and fireside banter as a lullaby. All the linen, bedding, towels are all provided at the fly camp. Overnight at Sabuk mobile camp.
