Kenya > The Mathews Range


  • Dear Frances, thank you SO much for your amazing recommendations and help in planning my trip to Kenya. I had an AMAZING experience! From the SafariLink flights to being picked up by David, my guide, to the Kicheche Mara camp itself (Andrea and Manuela, and really the whole staff, were wonderful). It was everything I could have ever hoped for and more than I imagined it could be. I just can’t thank you enough.

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.
