There are several ways to get to Unity Village.

By Matatu

Matatu’s are a popular public transportation choice for Kenyans. They are small buses that wait until they are full to leave for their destination. This means you might catch the Matatu right as it is leaving or need to wait several hours, however they are an economic option and a fantastic way to see true Kenyan culture. If you choose to travel independently, Matatus are the best option to get to Unity. From Nairobi, catch a matatu to Isiolo then Archer’s Post.

When you arrive in Archer’s Post, you will be in the center of the town. Turn to the south and walk down the dirt road toward the Samburu Game Reserve, passing the Umoja Women’s village. Unity will be about 2 kilometers down the road on the right with a sign. Please see the map below for more information.

Through a Tour

If you are already part of a safari tour that includes Samburu National Reserve, a visit to Unity Village couldn’t be any easier! You will drive right by our village on your way to the Reserve.  Inform your driver that you would like to visit and he will be able to guide you there. Below is a map of how to get to Unity from the Town Center of Archers Post.

Unity requests a donation of 1000 KSh (approximately $12 USD) per person to visit the village. Also, given some difficulties between drivers and local villages within the tourist industry in Kenya, we kindly as that you either pay Unity Village directly when you arrive or communicate with your driver about our posted donation request.

Please call or text Apin at +254 700 449214 at least one day in advance if you would like to visit Unity Village. Knowing you plan to visit will allow the women to look for your arrival and, if you are travelling by public transport, they can arrange for someone to meet you in Archers Post or Isiolo to ensure your safe arrival.

  3. Hello;
    I am a Turkish woman writer writing about woman and man relationship. I’m planing to visit your village, stay for a while and live the soul of power of the woman unity. So I can show and narrate what the woman can achieve despite the all inhibitions. Is it possible to stay in the village?
