Kenya > The Mathews Range


  • Hi Bill, Cathy and I just wanted say thank you for all your efforts in making our trip to Kenya go so smoothly. The whole trip was way above both of our expectations with the welcome and on-going hospitality, food etc in camp absolutely outstanding with every single member of staff addressing us by our first names throughout our stay. We have some stunning pictures somewhere in the 15,000 we took between us and now have the massive task of sorting them out. We were so lucky on our first four days with John, witnessing four crossings in two days and a number of great leopard sightings in addition to four week old lion cubs etc, etc. Even John said that some of the things we witnessed were either the first or best he had ever seen in the Mara. Once again many thanks and looking to save to go again!

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.
