Itinerary Description:

The Kenya Walking Safari begins with a flight into the Ol Pejeta Conservancy via Nairobi. Part of the Ewaso ecosystem in Laikipia, this area is a refuge for the threatened black rhino and a home for an astounding amount of elephant, lion, giraffe, and other plains grazers and predators. Ol Pejeta Bush Camp welcomes you first, with your first days spent enjoying game drives through the wilderness and, if you wish, visits to any of the several local sanctuaries where tireless efforts continue to preserve the threatened species of the area.

A game drive to a different part of Laikipia reveals the main site of Tumaren Camp, the starting point to your five-day Kenya walking safari through the region. Along the way trusty camels transport all of the tents, furnishings, equipment, and food from one scenic location to the next. A team of Samburu guides lead the way through areas that cannot be accessed by game vehicles, bringing the region to life in intimate detail and unique fashion.

Each day brings different discoveries on this African safari vacation. Following hearty breakfasts, morning treks meander to the next camp site, where travelers arrive to a lunch already prepared and tents waiting to welcome you in for a comfortable rest. Your guides seek out the very best places for sundowners and scenic views to further enhance the walking safari experience.

The Kenya walking safari continues after a flight into the famed Masai Mara. Naboisho Camp, nestled in the 50,000 acre Naboisho Conservancy, will be the final location on your unforgettable African safari vacation. Split your time here between an private fly camping experience in the wilderness and your luxury tent in camp, enjoying the wonders of this private corner of Kenya.
