Highlights of the Camel Safari

The safari is suitable for families too, children can ride on the camels when their feet get tired!  The knowledge of the guides is deep and meaningful ensuring that you’ll come away with a far greater knowledge of Kenya, its people and its wildlife.

The trek takes place in Laikipia/Samburu districts but the exact location depends on the weather movements of the wildlife. This is through some of Kenya’s best wildlife-viewing habitats, some of the most stunning landscapes in Africa. All nights are spent out under the stars and obviously this dictates avoiding rainy season!

This is an easy fly-camping mobile safari… the back up team sets up camp every night and takes care of  all packing-up, cleaning and food preparations too. Spacious mountain tents can sleep 2 adults or 3 children on a kingsize mattress. Tents are insect and reptile proof and come complete with a bedside table, mirror, towels, flash lights and solar light, even carpets! The camp has toilets and hot showers and a laundry service!

What is the best time of year to go?

  • January, February, July, August, September, and October  – best months to give this experience a try
  • April, May and November – heaviest rainfall during these months.

With mobile and lightweight fly-camping we can make the most of this outdoor wonderland.
