On a Walking Wild safari, your main bag is packed onto camels, and you carry just a day pack. Your walking safari guide will have with him a radio and mobile phone backup, a first aid kit, and a team of Maasai warriors!
Your camp consists of a 2-man dome tent with bedroll and towel (plus torch, water, fly spray and flip flops!). There is a bucket shower available, and a long or short drop loo tent (depending on where you are travelling and the exact spot of the camp).
Your Maasai crew will prepare you an excellent 3-course meal under the stars by a fire. Beers, wine and other drinks are all available.

The local Laikipiak Maasai community of Il Ngwesi is a one third owner in this walking safari company, which directly employs about 10 staff, but which benefits a great deal more people due to the size of the families linked to each employee, and also due to the fact that profits go to the community fund. This fund supports the education of poor families, buys cattle dip, builds schools and roads… whatever the community decides to spend the money on.
