THE SAMBURU TRIBE
WILD FRONTIERS BUSH CAMP MILGIS SAND RIVER LUGGA
The Matthews and Ndoto Mountain Ranges of northern Kenya are a fiercely beautiful and still unspoilt part of the country. This area is home to the Samburu and Rendille nomadic people who are proud, happy and friendly, they defy the modern world to go about their traditional business and still cherish the customs and colourful ceremonies of their ancestors. These northern mountains rise dramatically to heights of nearly 9000 feet, out of semi-arid country. They are capped in cool highland forest and drained by crystal-clear streams that end up in huge, 1km wide luggas.Â Every nomad and wild animal for 100â€™s of miles knows they will find water under the brown sand of the famous Milgis and Seiya luggas, no matter how dry the season. The Wild Frontiers mobile camp is erected and dismantled as and when visitors come, it is an eco camp in the truest sense of the word. There are not many places in the world where you can enjoy the beauty and remoteness of such a stunning area.
