is a stunning 3000 acre property dedicated exclusively to the
management and conservation of wildlife. With 360 degree sweeping
views of Mount Kenya to the South and the vast Frontier District
to the North, Tumaren is a window onto the romantic wilds of northern
Kenya. Neighboring Mpala Ranch and a series of other large conservation
areas Tumaren is also blessed with healthy numbers of game and
Glen and James Christian purchased Tumaren in early 2006 as a
home and a base for their safaris in northern Kenya. An evening
walk on the ranch typically will turn up Gerenuk, Impala, Steinbuck,
Common Zebra, Grevy's Zebra, Elephant, Grant's Gazelle and Dikdiks.
Several days spent in the area will likely find the more shy or
less common species such as Lesser Kudu, Eland, Hyenna, Bat-eared
Fox, Reticulated Giraffe or the endangered Lelwel's Hartebeest.
The lucky visitor may see the local Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs,
Aardwolves or Wilddogs and night drives turn up Aardvarks, Zorillas,
Caracals, Wildcats or White-tailed Mongooses.
Tumaren visitors can enjoy the property as a starting point for
a camel safari or as a base camp to explore from. Game drives,
mountain biking and walking are all included options for guests
