Culture

Northern Kenya is home to diverse cultures and colourful traditions. Community life revolves around livestock, and many of the ethnic groups still maintain the same semi-nomadic way of life that their ancestors did. There are more than 14** different ethnic groups in northern Kenya, including Maasai, Samburu, Boran, Rendille, Gabbra and Turkana.

Intimate access to the cultures of northern Kenya is a rare opportunity. Through community conservation, people now have a platform to share their traditions with visitors and earn valuable revenue for their families in doing so. Experience traditional homesteads, treat your ears to the 'singing wells’ and learn about handcrafted instruments and jewelry. Immersing yourself in the people that make The Big North so special is an experience you’ll never forget.
