The houses are very small, typically with a
living/bedroom and kitchen.Animal skins cover the
floor. There is no furniture.They are built of
branches, mud and dung in the same manner as the
Maasai.As the Samburu live in the arid north-east
their houses are only partly insulated as it is
very hot. Thorn bushes surround the camp to keep
out the wild animals.

  • The money was used by all the groups
  • The boy and girl who showed us round had been to
    a mission school and had learnt English
  • They realised the benefits of tourism
  • Beatrice, the girl, was now the teacher in the
    primary school
  • Reuben, the boy, knew about many cultures but had
    to accept the role of women in his own one.
  • The Samburu do not farm the land as they believe
    it is sacred
  • Even when they die they do not dig graves but
    leave their bodies to the wild animals
