Take a walk on the wild side!

Are you looking for an amazing adventure holiday which is perfect for all the family? Do you want to enjoy the wildlife of Africa and see nature as a Samburu warrior would?  Then have a look at the Karisia Walking Safaris in Laikipia, Kenya and take your loved ones on an adventure of a lifetime.

In the days of glitzy luxury lodges, and air-conditioned safari tents, it’s easy to lose touch with the things that originally lured visitors from across the world to the African bush. Karisia’s walking safaris mark a return to this, with days spent exploring the bush and walking from camp to camp as Samburu warriors lead you through their own land. Specialised in walking safaris, Karisia offers clients a unique opportunity to discover the most pristine regions of Kenya by foot, to explore Kenya’s magnificent wildlife up close and to get to know the rich culture of the Samburu in an intimate and authentic environment.

Escaping the constraints of a vehicle means that you can walk where no car will go. Every safari is tailor made to suit you and your family and every day is unique. You will track animals on foot, learn about the insects, flowers and trees, you can swim and fish in the river, climb kopjes and hills and even do some rock climbing. You can also visit local schools and markets.

The team and camels travel ahead with your mobile camp and have everything set up for your arrival, so you have time to relax, dine under the stars and find the perfect spot for a sundowner or two. There are different levels of camping from simple dome tents to proper safari tents so there is something for everyone. What is the same for everyone though is delicious food, comfortable camping and a team of Samburu looking after your every need.

The ever-changing scenery, wealth of game and the opportunity to see the smaller animals, insects, flora and fauna often missed on other safaris really sets this adventure holiday apart but we’ll let our clients tell you:

“Simply fantastic. All aspects of the safari were excellent and Gabriel (our guide) was a fountain of knowledge – even having the English premier league results to hand! Meals were outstanding given what facilities the team had to cook.” Wright family

“A memorable experience, we had to push the girls a little but it was very good for them and of course they could have a rest from walking on the camels” Grant family

“What a fantastic experience, the guides were amazing and we couldn’t believe how delicious the food was. Such a great time we all loved it. Our best family holiday” Morse family

This magical African bush adventure can be arranged as a stand-alone trip or built in to a bespoke holiday including additional safari camps then some relaxation on the coast.  To find out more – call Vicky on 0131 3152464.
