It's my first time to book a trip with Begin North Adventures, more so a Lake Turkana Trip and Adventure, A Chalbi Desert Experience, Ndoto Mountains Wonder at Ngurunit.. and the Marsabit Crater Lakes

we did all these in 6 days, every day was eventful, dramatic and well planned.. the trip organisation and execution was excellent!

I have not been to a vacation to Kenya's Central North.. As a first time, I had set my expectations really low.. from food to accommodation.. But the shock.. it turned out to be the best trip I have ever had as a solo traveller.

Mike and his team at Begin North Adventures did an excellent Job.. Everything was in place.. and there was no time to think or worry about anything.. and all time was left to enjoy the changing dramatic scenes.. wondrous culture that remains untouched.. beautiful sunsets.. and a lot of swimming.. 4 out of 6 days.. in wild clean pools, oasis waters to desert lakes.

This is a trip, I will want to do atleast once a year.. I will bring along my friends and family.. It's fun.. when atleast one or more people understand the experience.. as no amount of video or photos can do the justice..

Highly Recommended if you are looking to completely unwind and free your mind.

Thank you for the kind words Nic, We are glad to have had you as a guest for the Lake Turkana Trips and Adventures, Chalbi Desert Safari and the Marsabit Crater Lakes expedition. Central North Kenya, never disappoints - we are glad to know the experience was equally phenomenal for you and your desire for future visits is duly noted and most welcome.

The trip to the North of Kenya was nothing short of amazing. Mike and his team made sure that we were made as comfortable and safe as possible.
The places that "Begin North Adventures" have shown us were simply fantastic. We did a 10 day tour which was what was needed to see all the places. December was a very hot month and the drought has taken a toll of the land and its people.

This was a very memorable trip. We assume alot but this trip to the north brings out the little simple things that we take for granted. A very humbling experience that makes the long journey really worth it. If you like adventure, this is for you.
That joke that there is another Kenya from those sides is actually real😀
Who has slept in a modified manyatta? It's👍. And the heat..? Free sauna but fun, and more fun. Playing with sand and water at the same time. It's worth every penny👌.
Mike and the tour guides know their game and took us right inside the manyattas, villages and allowed us to mingle with our fellow kenyans to learn more about their origin, lifestyles, which will either shock or amaze you.
Food was in plenty and especially the fish from the palm hotel... It was super...the hospitality all through was superb without talking about the surprise sumptuous birthday cake for one of us.
Thank you team begin north 🙌

We were 10 MTB riders. BEGIN NORTH arranged a 16 days bike / Jeep custom tailored tour, in Kenya from Nanuki area to the remote areas of Turkana lake and desert and the Chalbi desert. Mike, owner of BEGIN NORTH, handled this complex operation efficiently with his soft and gentle speaking. The 10 members of the staff did every effort to provide us with the best service in these tough conditions. Although vehicles suffered repetitive mechanical faults, Mike and his stuff did everything possible to minimize the impact on the tour.
We had an amazing but tough experience.
Thank you Mike and the staff of BEGIN NORTH.

Thank you IK for taking the time to post your experience on the MTB trip to Kenya's remote North. Your feedback is helpful to other travellers and more so for my team who would identify what we did well and what we would need to improve on. You were an amazing team of daring and determined MTB riders . You are the first group to ride to Lake Logipi which at the time was getting near ground temperatures of 52 degrees celcius. We are much honoured to have offered your team support during this tough and challenging MTB ride in the deserts of Kenya's north. We look forward to more interactions in the future. thank you
