Nomadic Encounters

With most of the changing at a staggering pace, it is rare to find people who live as their fathers, grandfathers and even great-great grandfathers did. Yet this is still the case for a handful of tribes in Africa, and especially in parts of Tanzania and Kenya. In the Northern Frontier District of Kenya, this vast tract of territory crisscrossed by ancient migration routes and inhabited by Samburu, Rendille, Pokot and Turkana herders, it is still possible in the 21st century to see nomadic tribesmen living as they have for centuries. And in Tanzania, the region around Lake Eyasi tribes such as the Bushman Hadaz, Wahadzabe and Datoga retain their culture and traditional practices which is imperative to their tribes’ survival, and is core to their identity and sense of place in the world. Among the smell of calfskin skirts, the jingle of antique ankle bells, and the aroma of fresh earth after a sparse shower of precious rain, you will feel immediately connected to this land and its people, with an inner resonance for why these tribes wish to continue their traditional way of life. Whether you drop into remote locations via a helicopter or scenic plane flight or indulge your senses at one of the many extraordinary properties in these regions, you will experience how these tribes co-exist with the harsh beauty of this extreme country. Given the potential impact of our presence on both culture and environment, preservation is our primary concern. We thus take pains when when visiting these areas to leave them exactly as we encounter them.
