Karisia Walking Safaris

Our walking safaris are mainly exclusive and we tailor-make every trip to cater to the interests and goals of each guest or party. We are dedicated conservationists as well as ecologists and we take great pleasure in sharing our area's rich natural history with our guests.

Country

Kenya

Highlights

We love old-school safaris, those that revolve around adventure and unique experiences and our walking safaris in northern Kenya are just that.

Need to Know

We are a mobile operator moving each day with a fine team of camels. Guided by Masai and Samburu trackers, we move through the wilds of Laikipia and Samburu taking in the largest diversity of large mammals in Kenya.


SafarisSafaris


We walk through a great variety of country from high montane forest to broad sand rivers. With the changes in habitat come changes in ecology, habitat and wildlife. Typically we awake with the rising sun, eat a delicious breakfast prepared by our chefs, and begin our journey. We are accompanied by a Laikipia Masai tracker and a few riding camels who carry our refreshments and day-packs. Our pack camels and our camp follow behind but often times they pass us as we inspect the things we encounter along the way. We arrive at our next camp to be greeted with a cool drink and a gourmet lunch. The afternoon is normally spent relaxing, enjoying a stream or river, having a siesta or fishing before going for an evening walk and sundowners. The camels also use this time to relax and browse around camp. In the evening our staff will offer hot showers before we have drinks by the fire and a three-course dinner under the stars. After a nightcap, coffee and some storytelling, we usually retire to bed.
