True Nomads

Samburu

one of the most colourful African ethnic groups. Bodies and hair beautifully painted with red ochre, bead collars, meticulously crafted hairstyles, interlaced with flowers, beads, buttons, everything that’s within reach… Despite the omnipresent modernity which aggressively tries to reach every place on our planet, they are still very attached to tradition which they cherish and cultivate. When visiting Desert Rose, where they serve you coffee to bed, you can’t be closer to it…

Turkana

the lords of the stony world, incredibly black, skimply clothed in leather, decorated with scarifications and colorful necklaces. Every day of their life is a struggle for survival, for the water which becomes the purpose of their life.

El- Molo

the smallest and the least-known ethnic group in Kenya numbering about 300 people. According to some historians, the 'pure' El-Molo may number only forty! Shrouded in mystery and legends. Nobody knows exactly how they reached Turkana. Some say they could walk on the bottom of the lake and talk to crocodiles…

Gabra

true desert nomads, for generations evolved their livelihood in symbiosis with camels. They appear suddenly like ghosts in the middle of nowhere. Aliens. Tightly covered with black cloth, they drive their camels to water holes roaming through the galaxies of hills, dunes and river beds. Absorbed in their wander, that they run away at the sight of an approaching car.
