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.
