Professional guide and exploration specialist Squack Evans shares insights into three Kenya accommodations he has recently visited: the newly revamped Koros, the charming Cardamom House, and the Borana Conservancy stalwart Laragai House. Squack has been away guiding trips for a couple of months. Now that he’s finally back home, he goes into some detail on these properties, so find yourself a comfy seat and prepare for a good read.
Located in the small village of South Horr, in northern Kenya, just in reach of extinct volcanoes, desert plains, and the enigmatic Lake Turkana, Koros Camp is a small and authentic exclusive-use bush camp, offering ample comfort in an environment of extremes.
‘Koros is definitely off the usual tourist circuit. It works as a really good base, particularly for helicopter adventures. After a beautiful scenic helicopter flight, you land in camp, which is nice and shady with some decent trees. The camp is designed to catch the breeze and there’s a nice little plunge pool. It is simple, and exceptionally comfortable. The recent refurb is particularly classy.’
