Laikipia camps - Walking Wild
If you want a real change from the traditional safari game drive, how about walking through the bush alongside Samburu guides and pack camels to sleep under canvas in a remote spot. Really, there is no better way to experience the raw grit and earthiness of the African bush. The experience and memories are worth the bit of discomfort that you'll inevitably endure.
Bringing you through the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and the community conservation areas of Il Ngwesi and Lekurruki, Walking Wild gives an extraordinary chance to view a plethora of the region’s eco-systems, and hence witness some of Kenya’s most brilliant wildlife.
The experience is made all the more exhilarating by having the sense of being well and truly in the bush and being joined by local Maasai morani warriors, who give you an intimate insight into their traditional Maasai customs.
The walking is done during the coolest parts of the day, usually leaving around 7:30 and breaking for lunch at around 12. The accompanying escort of camels are there to help, and will gladly support a weary walker on their backs where the terrain allows.
Unscheduled and catering to groups of between 2 and 8 guests, for 3 to 5 nights, this trip is for the moderately fit who are happy to rough it and see a different side of Africa.
Activities from walking wild include lessons on: Animal tracking, vital bush skills, introduction to Maasai customs.
Incl. FB, soft drinks, beer, house wine & spirits. Excl. cellar wine & premium spirits.
