Naitodo – the very spot that Attenborough stood

.. when he launched BBC’s Africa series.

Blog_Naitodo_DSC_0297We often touch down here for a moment to take in the incredible views all around, and to enjoy this spiritual site, which means ‘needle’ in Samburu.  It’s one of northern Kenya’s most iconic landmark, with these incredible giant rocks that seems so perfectly arranged on top of the hill.

On this occasion we took off from Laikipia, and for a birds-eye view of the remote northern landscapes from the helicopter, flying along the course of the Ewaso Nyiro River, which was in flood (a rare occurrence), and ended the day with sundowners on Naitodo.
