Detailed Itinerary

  • Day 1 Arrival Nairobi

    Upon arrival into Nairobi you will be met and transferred to your hotel.
    Overnight Macushla House.

  • Day 2 Nairobi - Sinyai Lugga

    Morning transfer to Wilson airport for your flight to Nanyuki. Road transfer to your camp.
    In camp we will be greeted by our local team of cooks, camel guys, and guides. After a refreshing lunch we will enjoy a rest before a short evening walk down the sand river ending with sundowners on a tall promontory with a commanding view. Greater Kudu inhabit the hillsides that slope down toward our camp and we will scan for these elusive animals. Back at camp we will find our welcoming campfire on the edge of the sandy lugga. After hot showers and drinks around the fire we will have a sit down dinner under the stars.
    Overnight at Camp BLD

  • Day 3 Walking Safari Nayasura Camp

    We will drive to camp where we will be greeted by our local team of cooks, camel guys, and trackers. The local Laikipia Masai call these rocks Nayasura and stone chippings suggest that they have been used as a camp for millennia. We too will use the rocks starting with a refreshing lunch and short rest in our classic roomy safari tents. After lunch we will head out on a short walk looking for game and getting a feel for the country. As the sun begins to set we will find ourselves at the crest of Nayasura with drinks and bitings, watching the baboons come back to roost on the face of the rock.
    Overnight at Camp BLD

  • Day 4 Walking Safari Nyarara Camp

    From Nayasura we will head out early after breakfast so to see as much game as possible on our walk north towards Nyarara Camp. Nyarara means Cheetah in Masai and the camp was given this name because of a large male that has been seen in the area.
    Along our walk we will walk across large plains as well as mixed bush. Herds of Zebra, Oryx and Grant’s gazelle predominate on the large plains. In the mixed bush we find Dikdiks, Gerenuk, Impala and Lesser Kudu if we are lucky enough to see them. We will arrive at camp in time for lunch. The pack camels with our camp will have made a more direct route than us and so they will have arrived before us and set up most of camp before our arrival. After lunch we will relax and walk to a pretty spot for sundowners.
    Overnight at Camp BLD

  • Day 5 Walking Safari Tumaren Ewaso Camp

    Today we will be heading down toward the Ewaso Nyiro River, which runs along the eastern edge of the Laikipia Plateau and then turns eastward toward Samburu National Reserve. Along the way we will be looking for Eland, Steinbuck and Giraffe and enjoy the changing scenery.
    When we arrive at the Ewaso Nyiro we may want to take a quick swim before lunch. After lunch, a rest and sundowners on a high rocky hillside we will return to our camp on the river for dinner and a toast to our adventure.
    Overnight at Camp BLD

Interesting facts
Photography tour in Sahara

 Have you seen the movie Gladiator? If not, go and watch right now. Those who have seen in will be glad to know that Sahara is the location where the most prominent scenes of the movie were shot. You can start with capturing the velvet dunes and taking photos of the snake charmers and mighty camels proudly swaying as they carry bedouins on their back. Once in a province, you will get a chance to capture and even participate in the traditional tea ceremony as well as to see the locals playing gnawa music performed on goatskin drums. The beauty of the sunset in Sahara is just a cherry on the top of a cake you cannot miss out on.
