There are more beautiful and serene oases in the northern Kenyan Chalbi Desert to provide for some memorable safari experiences. That and the notion that such a cool and vegetated location can exist in such a huge area of nothing but bareness and sand is nearly miraculous.

Tribes and Culture.

The last remaining nomadic tribes in Kenya, including the Turkana, Samburu, Marakwet, Pokot, Rendile, El Molo, and Gabbra tribes, reside in this region due to its historical nomadic routes. This region’s Gabbra people are a resilient race whose acclimatisation to a nomadic lifestyle guarantees their existence.

These populations find it difficult to obtain food and water for both themselves and their cattle because Chalbi is an arid region. They never stay still for very long and have a tendency to roam around.

When it’s time to move on to the next site, they quickly dismantle the makeshift buildings they call manyattas. Men and small boys go out to graze and tend to their cattle, leaving women and children mostly alone to construct manyattas.


Nearby destinations to consider visit while in Chalbi.

Loiyangalani: Proceeding to the Loiyangalani area, which is situated along Lake Turkana’s shoreline, is an option. It is primarily buried with large amounts of volcanic ash and debris. Most of the historical archives pertaining to human evolution are housed there, and it is thought to be the starting point of human evolution. This area has been set aside by the Kenya Wildlife Service as Sibiloi National Park, a historic protected area. You will encounter cultural customs and events among the Rendile and El Molo Communities in this area. They belong to Kenya’s richly practiced cultural communities.
