Guests will be taught how to use bow, arrows, pangas and spears, how to build a bush camp and tend goats and cattle. The whole family will learn about Samburu stories and will learn to dance, Samburu style, under a brilliant moon. Children will join village youngsters and help them make toys from local materials. No Nintendos here!

This is an adventurous tour, suitable for children from age five. From £2,275 per adult and £1,465 per child including all flights, taxes, guiding, game drives,accommodation and meals at Saruni Samburu on a full board basis.

Oh my word, Africa is among the best places to travel in the world. I've already read the lost ways guide on survival and I think I'm capable of encountering the dangers in there pretty well.
