A stunning range of hills & mountains to the north of Laikipia at the base of Kenya's NFD (Northern Frontier District). The Matthews rise to over 2300m with a network of valleys and ridges, thick with stands of cedar, many topped off with dramatic craggy peaks. The whole area lies in sharp contrast to the dry bush country all around it.
Numerous springs rise in these hills, providing precious water for people and wildlife of this area and, although often shy, patience is normally rewarded with sightings of elephant, buffalo, kudu, forest hog and even lion and leopard.
Only two small camps lie within this vast area, Kitich, nestled in amongst the lush vegetation along the banks of the Ngeng River and Sarara just north of Ol Lolokwe in the community wilderness area of Namunyak.
