Ik-Tribe Cultural Experience

The Ik tribe are former hunters gatherers who today live on the extreme northeastern corner of the country. They currently successfully practice farming and bee-keeping and are known for their love for the environment and their cultural heritage.

Counting only 7,000 people, the people still speak their ancestral language and practice their traditional culture and traditions. Travellers need to travel a distance to visit the IK, as reward you receive rare insight into a unique tribe in Africa.

You will find stunningly beautiful Scenery the higher your climb takes you, simply breathtaking scenes in the valleys below you and into the Eastern Rift Valley of Kenya and over to Southern Sudan.

    (Read original review on Facebook) We were very lucky that Kara-Tunga was brought to our attention right before we took off for a visit to Kidepo NP, otherwise we would probably have missed out on such an awe-inspiring experience in the North-Eastern and Eastern parts of Uganda.

    Certainly feel that team Kara-Tunga showed us some of the most delicate, hidden treasures in Uganda. All that in a creative, pure, respectful, fun and authentic way.

    Altogether, our Kara-Tunga Karamajong experience is probably one of the most memorable experiences during our 3-year stay in Uganda. Fame worth spreading!

  2. Kees Rotteveel (The Netherlands)

    Together with a friend I visited the Ik tribe in June 2017, and it turned out to be the most remote and culturally interesting region in Uganda I ever visited! Don’t expect hotels and well catered camp sites. With the help of Kara-Tunga we stayed in people homes or camped in their gardens, with magnificent views across Turkana! I can highly recommend this hidden gem to everybody who likes a bit of adventure.
