Karisia Walking Safaris
Karisia Walking Safaris offer the ultimate luxury walking safari experience, with their signature element of a camel train to portage all the camping equipment and luggage. This accredited company is based in eastern Laikipia – an area north of Mt Kenya renowned for its pristine wilderness and prolific wildlife. Their base is only a 2 hour drive from the scheduled flight destination of Nanyuki. Yes, the four poster bed is left behind, but the King size mattress, feather pillows, duvet, linen, dressing gowns, towels, hot water bottles, solar lights, headlamps and carpets all come along. You will sleep in a large, traditional canvas tent, with a chair, table, mirror, drinking water and wash basin on the tent veranda. There’s a toilet behind each tent, and plenty of hot water for a hot bucket shower. This excursion is for anyone between the ages of 4 – 80.
This region boasts the highest diversity of large mammals in Kenya, and is also home to several endangered species including the Grevy’s zebra, the African wild dog, and Jackson’s hartebeest. Specialist English-speaking guides, and an expert tracker, together with a few camels carrying your refreshments and day-packs, will accompany you on your morning’s walk. The rest of the staff and camel train move ahead to set up the next camp and your gourmet lunch. Your adventurous journey will be filled with rich insights into the region’s glorious bio-diversity, and the lives and traditions of the local Samburu tribe. After afternoons of relaxation, sundowners and 3-course dinners bring each day to a sublime close.
