This Karamoja Gold Mining Tour takes you to one of the mining families located in the panoramic arid hills bordering Kenya’s rift valley. As the landscape changes, you will notice that the people have adapted to the dry climate. The majority Karimojong and Turkana (Kenya) tribes are living from gold mining and some of the marble industry. The artisan gold mining mine we visit will share the craft and give you the ability to win gold yourself.
Ten years ago, no one envisioned the current magnitude of the mining boom in Karamoja sub-region, a region that is now popular for its vast mineral resources. But overall the revenues from the mining is low.
