Scenic boat trips in traditional Sesse canoes to view the prolific birdlife of Baringo (over 450 species) as well as crocodile and hippo. You can also throw fish for fish eagles, offering spectacular photographic opportunities.
Canoe around the island. We have several paddle canoes on offer. Please take a life jacket, water, hat and suncream. If the wind gets up this can be harder to paddle back. Occasionally a hippo resides at the southern end of the island so look out and stay clear of him.
Fishing: Take a rod and try your luck at fishing for catfish, barbell and tilapia. Dough, bacon and worms are the best bait & a basic hand line or stick rod with hook and line will do you fine. Nixon can show you the best fishing spots. Please beware of slippery rock surfaces at the water’s edge.Kindly use only barbless hooks as most fish you catch will be to small to keep. This gives the fish a chance to be released without major injury and gives it a greater chance to survive to adulthood.
Nature and bird walks over the top of Samatian to see the birds and extraordinary plant-life. You will be surrounded by stunning views so take a camera and binoculars. Be sure to wear good shoes and a hiking pole as rock surfaces can be loose and rough. Take a torch if going in the evening so not to get caught out.
Trips to visit the local Njemps or Pokot tribes. Ask Richard for more details.
A beautiful walk around Giraffe Island. This is home to 8 endangered Rothchild’s (formally known as Baringo) giraffe, ostrich, warthogs, impalas and hyrax. The rangers will be happy to guide you and you can get up close to these extraordinary creatures that were brought here by boat. This costs 500 ksh per person in conservation fees plus the boat transfer of 2,000 ksh (carries up to 7 passengers).
Sundowners to a beach. Richard can arrange to take you to a beach where you can take your cocktails, light a fire and watch the sun sink over the horizon. Some of your group might like to canoe there. Boat fees will apply.
