The Kenyan Camper explores Nakuprat-Gotu

The Kenyan Camper is a Nairobian with a thirst for the great outdoors, and a love of his country's wilderness. His insatiable appetite for camping and exploring the roads less travelled in Kenya has earned his blog and Instagram a significant following, as he documents his travels around the country. Anyone with an adventurous spirit and a desire to explore Kenya with a tent need look no where else for impartial inspiration and advice. 

Recently, he visited Nakuprat-Gotu Community Conservancy as part of a 10 day adventure to northern Kenya. His two-part blog about the trip, he covers everything from getting there and setting up camp, to crocodiles, meteoroids, an unlikely Oxford graduate and the epic Gotu Falls. You can read part one here, and part two here.

Camping on the shores of the mighty Ewaso River gives you an opportunity to see a rich variety of wildlife, birds and reptiles. Swimming is not advised, unless you think you could take on a crocodile. Nakuprat-Gotu charges KSH 2,000 per person, which includes Conservancy entry fees. Find out more about where your money goes. 

The Kenyan Camper hired a Nakuprat-Gotu ranger to guide him to the Gotu Falls, which look particularly stunning at the end of long rains. He ran out of time to see the Magado Crater, but this is definitely worth a visit.
