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.

Fantastic Kenya 🇰🇪 Safari thanks Vanessa

"We stayed at three beautiful lodges; The Emakoko Nairobi National Park, Tortillis Camp Amboseli National Park and Kicheche Valley Camp Mara Conservation Area. Great food, great staff, great guides, great management, could not fault anything. Every pick up was on time and with a smile. Loved the ‘Captains Table’ at Kicheche. Highlight was the Ballon ride over the Mara - fantastic. We saw all that we hoped to see, Nairobi; lion, rhino, plains game Amboseli; elephant, lion, buffalo, hippo, plains game Mara; leopard, lion, elephant, cheetah, buffalo, plains game. In Nairobi we stayed at the Sarova Stanley which was also great, leaving a message on the mail board by the ‘Thorn Tree’. Key to our great safari was our travel consultant Vanessa Janion at Natural High who was fantastic. Yes we loved everything, thanks Vanessa 💖"

Very helpful and accomodating

"Very helpful and Catherine went out of her way to accommodate us. It was also short notice from our side and yet it all worked very well. Good advice was provided to us about where to stay en route and all queries promptly answered."

Phenomenal Safari which will certainly stay with us for years to come

"Our main contact, Rod, was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the Safari that we ultimately decided upon. We trusted his recommendations throughout and were certainly impressed by the trip. Whilst we were on Safari Rod was always there at the end of the phone, or email should we need him (which we did with a bit of a passport blip) and he did everything he could to help us out."
