Kenya > The Mathews Range


  • Overall, I was very impressed with the offering from Safari Consultants – both in terms of the in-depth knowledge of the country and the camps, and also the personable service from our consultant – Mary Grimwood. It was Mary’s service that made me decide to go ahead with Safari Consultants, in particular her: In depth knowledge of the camps and Kenya; Guidance as we shaped the itinerary; Prompt response to (many) queries and clarifications; being always at ease and managing my expectations well. I will be returning to Safari Consultants again in the future!

The Mathews Range

Northern Kenya is dominated by arid desert and it is therefore quite a surprise to find lush riverine valleys and thick forested slopes in the heart of it all, but the Mathews Range is just that. Careful management of certain areas at the southern end of the range has created a huge growth in animal numbers, especially the elephants which have previously been victims of poaching. A visit to the Mathews Range should not be about game-viewing alone (except possibly the elephants), but rather more about the wilderness, scenery, exclusivity, walking and cultural interaction that can be enjoyed (including the famous ‘singing wells’). When people claim Kenya is ‘over-crowded’ with tourists, they clearly do not know about places such as the wonderful Namunyak Conservancy in the Mathews.
