Cultural Visits

Singing Wells

Close to Kitich Camp are “singing wells” where the Samburu herdsman bring up water into traditional troughs to water their herds.  The warriors sing to keep the rhythm of passing water between them flowing and the soothing voices relax the cows. A colourful, ancient tradition.

Ngalai Village

The people of Kitich and their families within the village of Ngalai are a colourful, traditional, gentle and friendly people whose only interaction with the wider world is with the guests from Kitich.

Guests are hosted by the local people when they stay at Kitich, but guests are also welcome to drive down and visit the market and school in the village. (School visits require a donation).
