Why go on a Kenya walking safari?

Why go on a Kenya walking safari?

For a real taste of the wild Kenyan bush, join a walking safari! These are a great way of really getting close to nature and concentrating on the smaller things you might not necessarily see in a vehicle. 

Walking safaris in Kenya are a fantastic way to explore the bush on safari. You are able to spend more time on the smaller things which you would normally drive past in a vehicle. Walking safaris are the ideal activity for those who want to get out of the vehicles, off the main roads and want to get a real taste of the bush. Whether this is your first time or if you have done walks before, you are bound to learn something new.

What, where, how?

Kenya walking safaris are done in the private concessions such as Laikipia, as they are not permitted elsewhere. The concessions are privately owned and have a fantastic variety of game and, although the concessions are home to predators, they are in smaller numbers.

The safari walks are generally arranged in small groups, however there is the possibility at some camps to do private walks. The guides are extremely experienced,  have expert knowledge on all aspects of the bush and will always be happy to talk you through everything, as are we. You will be accompanied by an armed guide for your safety.

You do need a relatively good level of fitness for walking safaris as they can be a few hours long. However, most walks will involve a break with tea and biscuits half way through – perfect for refuelling!
