The northeastern part of Kenya is a region known by every household and not for the right reasons at all. This region is mainly inhabited by the Somali community in Kenya and has been struggling with countering terrorism.

However, for those who have been to Northeastern, there is a lot to admire when it comes to resorts. They stand tall, surrounded by lush well-manicured gardens that take away the fact this is an arid area where water is a luxury.

Everything about these resorts is charmingly beautiful. They are secured, welcoming and highly serene.
