We are so very fortunate.
The Travel Concepts Morocco tour group has just returned from an incredible 14 day adventure to one of the world’s most fascinating countries. One of the highlights of the trip was a pre-dawn camel ride through the Sahara desert to the foot of an enormous sand dune. We got off our camels, climbed to the top of the dune and with our Toureg camel leaders watched the sunrise over the Sahara. It was magical and one of the most special experiences of our lives.
Arlene Kirby, recently revisited Kenya to sample some of the wonderful game viewing in the North of Kenya. Enjoy this post written by our Africa Specialist, Arlene:
Stunning Samburu Intrepids: – The Samburu landscape in Kenya’s dry north, is stunning for its dramatic range of landscapes – the dry plains, river and mountains. The Samburu Intrepids on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro has beautiful spacious tents which feature a private verandah facing the river, including family suites. It’s great country to see the Samburu special five – the Reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, Beisa Oryx and the long-necked antelope, the Gerenuk besides the big cats of Africa including the elusive Leopard. I was able to see all these animals at close range and within one day of game viewing.
While at the Samburu Intrepids, I was able to visit a local community where the traditional lifestyle still exists. Near the village, the local school and saw the bright and enthusiastic students learning with the most basic of school rooms and equipment.
They are a pastoral tribe, living a nomadic life as they travel through their territory in search of fresh pasture for their valuable herds of goats and cattle. Their entire society and culture revolves around their cattle, particularly because milk makes up a large part of the Samburu diet. Wealth is measured by herd size.
Like the Masai and the Turkana, the Samburu tribe is among the most traditional of all African tribes. They mainly still live the same way they always have, and don’t feel any need to change their customs.
A Samburu village is made up of 5 to 8 families living together in somewhat temporary huts. They move frequently with their herds. The men are responsible for the safety and protection of the village and the cattle, whereas the women manage the children and all other household work.
If you have any questions regarding travel to Kenya, please feel free to contact me! (604) 926-8511

Where in the world do you want to go and how long do you have to get there?
Clients are seriously considering their “Bucket Lists” and putting us in charge!
Let’s face it — longer international journeys take their toll and many are best made while you can still trek to the villages, swim with the dolphins or hoist a sail.
Tomorrow isn’t always assured and planning in advance will help you prioritize your future travels. There are lots of factors to consider. If, for instance, you usually take one big trip a year in the fall, you may find that fall isn’t the best time to visit a certain destination. At Travel Concepts, we make it our business to know when and how best to explore the various regions of the world.
We’re dedicated to helping you put together your “Bucket List” and bringing it to fruition. If we know what’s on it, we can be watching for specials and new offerings that might appeal. For a private experience tailored uniquely to your tastes, Travel Concepts can introduce you to our partners around the world who will help us design a perfect trip.
If you prefer the security and companionship of small group travel, please join us on Feb. 21 to meet our newest touring partner, Tauck Tours. Tauck has distinguished itself by connecitng people and places and by providing a truly all-inclusive, inspirational travel experience.
You only go around once — be sure that you go around the world and do it right!
