Matthews Range

Why Visit the Matthews Range

  •  A remote and little-visited part of Kenya that is home to spectacular mountains
  • Perfect for hiking, horse riding, camel trekking and mountain biking
  • Still home to traditional Samburu people, who live alongside wildlife conservancies

 A Little More About the Matthews Range

This remote mountain range in northern Kenya rises up from the flatter lands of Samburu, north of the Ewaso Nyiro River. Rising to almost 3,000 metres, these dramatic mountains are carpeted with forests, in sharp contrast with the drier, sparser lands that fill the surrounding valleys.

The area is home to several wildlife conservancies and, in spite of a tough climate, animals thrive here. It is also home to numerous hardy Samburu communities. Grazing cattle beside the foothills of the mountains, they practice a way of life that remains largely unchanged in modern times.
