    This is the only place in Kenya where you can find the last of the truly nomadic tribes namely the Turkana, Gabbra, Rendille, Samburu, Pokot and the endangered El Molo tribe. Their beliefs, dress, art, crafts, dance and music are fascinating and awe inspiring.

Nariokotome boy was discovered by Mr Kamoya Kimeu who was part of Dr Richard Leakey team in 1984. The fossil (KNM-WT 1500) is considered to be the remains of a 11-12 year old boy dating back to 1.6 million years ago. This discovery has put Kenya in the forefront of Human Evolution studies hence the term, CRADLE OF HUMANKIND.
