The route

Northern Kenya

Wild & Remote

Discover the hidden gems of Northern Kenya with our "Off the Beaten Track" experience. Venture beyond the well-trodden paths and immerse yourself in the authentic beauty and culture of this diverse country. From remote villages and untouched wilderness to lesser-known national parks and off-grid accommodations, this journey offers a unique perspective of Kenya that few travelers get to experience. Explore verdant mountains and remote deserts, encounter rare wildlife, and connect with local communities as you uncover the lesser-known treasures of this captivating destination. If you're seeking adventure, authenticity, and a deeper connection with Kenya, then this off-the-beaten-track experience is for you.

We travel anticlockwise through Northern Kenya. This is not your typical “Kenya Safari”. This is an expeditionary style adventure and the route is remote with tourists rare along many of the roads and tracks we explore.

This is an exploratory adventure, so you must be prepared for the unexpected and be flexible as plans may not go to plan or may change due to current local or weather conditions.
