Bush tour to Sokoke Earth Crater

This is a day trip to legendary location on the Kenyan North Coast with visit of a native village, bush walk and lunch in a bush restaurant. Meet the native people in their living environment.

The trip leads to the village Sokoke on the southern rim of the Arabuko Forest, one of the last coastal forests in East Africa.

The legend of the origin of the Sokoke Earth Crater

More than 100 years ago there was a Giriama village on the area of the crater, where a family was living. There was also a school in the village. One day the king of the tribe came and told them to go with him, because a series of misfortunes would befall the village. But the family disobeyed and stayed in the village. This was followed by years of storm and earth quakes. The family didn’t survive this. When the king came back some years later, the village was not there any longer. There was only a forest with a deep crater in it. In the night one could hear the voices of people and could see fire, but there was nobody.

Today there is a school near to the crater, the Nyari Primary School. The meaning of “Nyari” in English is “crater”.

Tour Program
