Northwest Safari Circuit

northwest safari circuit Northwest Safari Circuit is characterised by changeable landscapes

The vast swathe of Kenya that runs north from Nairobi towards the remote border with Ethiopia is characterised by geographic extremes. On the one hand, there are the cool and fertile central highlands that rise towards the 5,199m peak of Mount Kenya, not only Africa’s second-tallest mountain, but sufficiently lofty to actually support glaciers less than 15 km south of the equator. By contrast, the hostile plains that stretch north from Mount Kenya rank among the most parched and barren of sub-Sahelian landscapes, supporting a thin population of nomadic peoples who eke out a living as traditional pastoralists.

These contrasting landscapes offer some of Kenya’s finest and most varied game viewing. Admittedly there’s nothing quite on the scale of the Masai Mara, but the remote and rugged likes of Meru National Park, Samburu-Buffalo Springs National Reserve and the private ranches of Laikipia support a fascinating array of dry-country wildlife, while the highlands around Mount Kenya are rich in forest wildlife. Overall, the northwest will perhaps be less rewarding to first-time safari goers than the more famous southern circuit, but when it comes to unusual wildlife encounters and a genuine wilderness experience, it arguably has more to offer repeat African visitors.

Highlights

Protecting Africa’s second-tallest mountain, Mount Kenya National Park is also Kenya’s most popular destination for multi-day hikes. For ordinary hikers, the usual goal is the 4,985m-high Point Lenana, but peak-baggers with suitable climbing experience and gear can head all the way up to the 5,199m Batian Peak. Either way, weather permitting, the landscapes - from lush rainforest to stark equatorial glaciers - are stunning.

Set in the forest zones of Mount Kenya and nearby Aberdare National Park, a trio of hide-like tree hotels - Serena Mountain Lodge, Treetops and The Ark - offer a unique overnight game-viewing experience, overlooking water holes that regularly attract some or all of the Big Five, as well as a host of secretive forest-dwellers.

The attractive Thomson’s Falls stands alongside Kenya’s highest town Nyahururu.

Solio Game Ranch, set on the grassy highland saddle between Mount Kenya and the Aberdares, operates Kenya’s most important breeding program for black and white rhino.

The vast Laikipia Plateau protects a patchwork of private and community-owned sanctuaries that offer an exclusive all-inclusive safari packages focussing not only on the Big Five but also on rarities such as Grevy’s zebra and black rhino. At many ranches, game drives are supplemented by a more varied menu of night drives, guided walks and horseback safaris.

Set on the arid plains north of Mount Kenya, the Samburu-Buffalo Springs-Shaba complex of national reserves protects a harsh environment alleviated by the forest-fringed waters of the perennial Ewaso Nyiro River. It is the best place to see a long list of localised dry-country mammals and birds whose range is limited to northern Kenya and bordering parts of Ethiopia and Somalia.

The Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy north of Samburu can be explored on exclusive multi-day camelback and walking safaris.

mount meru national park The beautiful Mount Meru National Park

Arguably Kenya’s best-kept game-viewing secret, Meru National Park holds out the possibility of seeing all the Big Five in an untrammelled and little-visited wilderness of grassy plains and babbling jungle-lined streams.

Now accessible along a newly asphalted road running north all the way to the Ethiopian border, the underrated Marsabit National Park protects a volcanic massif that rises in verdant isolation from the surrounding arid plains. Supporting a cover of lush forest, and studded with pretty crater lakes, the park is also home to a good variety of wildlife including some impressive tuskers.

One of Kenya’s most alluring off-the-beaten-track goals, Lake Turkana is the world’s largest desert lake, its deep jade waters submerging the Rift Valley floor for a length of 300 km from north to south. Set in a primeval landscape of extinct volcanoes and naked lava flows, this forbidding lake supports the world’s largest concentration of Nile crocodile, and it is also where several of the world’s oldest and most important hominid fossils have been unearthed. The lake hinterland is of great cultural interest thanks to the presence of traditional and colourfully-attired ethnic groups, among them the Rendille, Samburu, Turkana and El Molo.

Practical Advice
  • The main air gateway to the region is Nanyuki Airport, which stands close to the eponymous town and is serviced by daily flights from the Masai Mara and Nairobi. Nanyuki is a short drive from most sites of interest in the region, but those heading on to more remote parts of Laikipia or the likes of Namunyak may need to charter an additional flight.

  • Public reserves and parks are best visited on an organised safari, which can be arranged through any operator. Self-drive out of Nairobi is also a possibility. It is quite common to tag a visit to one or more of Laikipia, Meru and/Samburu-Buffalo Springs onto a southern safari taking in the likes of Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru. Any of the region’s three tree hotels - Treetops, The Ark or Serena Mountain Lodge - would make for a great overnight break en route.

  • Hikes on Mount Kenya are best arranged with specialist operators who know the mountain well.

  • Upmarket lodges and tented camps can be found in all national parks and listed conservancies. Private lodges in Laikipia mostly cater to the top end of the safari market, and their standard thing is an all-inclusive package that covers transportation, meals, activities and in some cases drinks. Most lodges in public reserves operate more like conventional hotels.

January tends to fall in Kenya’s wet season in the wider sense of the term (November to May), it lies outside of the two notable ‘long’ and ‘short’ rain periods, which means that you can expect much less rain with stunning landscapes, albeit unpredictable at times. Potential rains are generally quite short and occur in the afternoon, so it won’t affect your safari.

Nairobi and the central highlands are hot by day, cool by night and receive a moderate amount of rain. Mombasa and the coast is very hot by day, rather hot at night, and receives little rain.

The Rift Valley and western interior are hot by day, cool at night and receive very little rainfall.

  • January is a good time for beach holidays on the Kenyan coast, though daytime temperatures can get very high. This is an excellent time to visit the Mara because January is when it experiences one of its driest spells, with only around five days of rain and eight hours of sunlight every day.

  • Game viewing in most safari destinations is good in January. Birdlife is boosted by a variety of intra-African and Palaearctic migrants. For divers and snorkelers, January is probably the best month to see larger marine creatures such as whale shark, manta ray, and various sharks, dolphins and turtles. Being relatively warm and dry, January is on if the best months for climbing Mount Kenya.

The Rift Valley and western interior are hot by day, cool at night and receive very little rainfall.

  • February is a good time for beach holidays on the Kenyan coast, though daytime temperatures can get very high. Game viewing in most safari destinations is good this time of the year. While birdlife is boosted by a variety of intra-African and Palaearctic migrants. February experiences the lowest levels of precipitation in the Masai Mara, compared to that of the rest of the year, with only around three days of rain. Due to this, the chances of spotting the wildlife at the watering holes is higher.

  • For divers and snorkelers, February is a good month to see larger marine creatures such as whale shark, manta ray, and various sharks, dolphins and turtles. Being relatively warm and dry, February is one of the best months for climbing Mount Kenya - Africa’s second highest peak after Mount Kilimanjaro in neighbouring Tanzania.

Nairobi and the central highlands are hot by day, comfortable at night and receive a moderate to high rainfall. Mombasa and the coast is very hot by day, rather hot at night, and receives occasional rain. The Rift Valley and western interior are hot by day, cool at night and receive occasional rain.

  • March is the hottest month on the coast, but if you can tolerate the heat, it’s a good time for beach holidays. March usually signals the start of the long rains in most safari destinations, which means that game viewing can be relatively challenging, as animals are dispersed away from water sources and thick vegetation tends to reduce visibility, and minor tracks may be inaccessible when inundated with water.

  • Coastal areas will benefit from clear sea visibility before the arrival of the rains, so diving is excellent and marine life abounds.

  • April is one of the wettest months on the coast and not good for beach holidays or underwater activities. As a result, game viewing can be challenging, as animals are dispersed away from water sources and thick vegetation tends to reduce visibility, and minor tracks may be inaccessible when inundated with water. Most Intra-African and Palearctic migrant birds will have flown north by April.

Nairobi and the central highlands are hot by day, comfortable at night and very wet.

Mombasa and the coast is very hot by day, rather hot at night, and receives little rain.

The Rift Valley and western interior are hot by day, cool at night and receive a high rainfall. May could be a great (more cost effective) option for seasoned safari-goers because it offers the chance to experience Kenya in a completely different light. Although, this is not recommended for first-time safari enthusiasts because the chances of seeing much wildlife is slimmer.

  • May is by far the wettest month on the coast, with an average monthly rainfall of greater than 300mm, making it a very poor time for beach holidays or underwater activities.

  • The long rains continue into May in many safari destinations. As a result, game viewing can be challenging, as animals are dispersed away from water sources and thick vegetation tends to reduce visibility, and minor tracks may be inaccessible when inundated with water.

The Rift Valley and western interior are hot by day, cool at night and receive occasional rain. Some of the rains brought in by the kusi monsoon occur early in June, however as the month progresses the cooler, drier weather develops.

The climate throughout June becomes much more comfortable than the preceding months, particularly in the highlands. Although drier, it is likely to remain cloudy keeping the sun and higher temperatures at bay. This can be a great time to travel with children as you don’t need to worry about humidity and constant sun cream application.

  • June is one of the wettest months on the coast and not good for beach holidays or underwater activities.

  • Game viewing in most safari destinations is good in June.

  • First held in 2008, the annual Lake Turkana Festival, a colourful showcase for 14 traditionalist ethnic communities associated with the northern deserts, takes place at the small town of Loiyangalani, usually in June.
