Camel Safari with Samburu Guides

If you want a real change from game drives, how about a walking safari in Laikipia alongside Samburu guides

Pack camels transport your mobile camp and set up in a new remote spot each night. Dine under the stars and sleep under canvas.

Really, there is no better way to experience the raw grit and earthiness of the African bush. The experience and memories that you'll take from it 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, this safari 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.

Another Perfect Trip

"Morocco was our fourth trip with Natural High and true to past trips, the itinerary was right on point for our interest and goals, all logistics went off without a hitch and the service throughout the trip was high end. Everyone we worked with were friendly and professional. We had a fantastic time...Thank you!"

Perfect holiday from start to finish.

"Absolutely excellent service. The itinerary was spot on and the whole holiday worked like clockwork. The pre holiday notes and briefing were most useful too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natural High Safaris to others."

Fabulous trip to Tanzania

"This is the second time we have used Natural High Safaris, and again they organised an outstanding holiday for us, this time in Tanzania, combining a safari and beach holiday that was top-notch. Highly recommend them, with huge range of experience and desire to really understand what it is their clients want - and then delivering! Thanks to Catherine Ronan."


An outstanding trip to the Himalayas superbly designed by Natural High.

"Natural High organised a 2 week family trip to Ladakh in August 2018. Andrea Hulme used her local knowledge to design an exciting trip that included a 5 day trek, white water rafting and numerous cultural visits and experiences. Their local partners Shakti were absolutely outstanding and we loved staying in the village houses as opposed to hotels. Their female Ladakhi guide Sonam was really one of the best we have every had on our travels."

"Yet again another great holiday arranged by Natural High - Air France tried to ruin it but Natural High and their local agent were very helpful in resolving the problems caused. ."
