Karisia Camping

Laikipia Samburu & the North

Rating: Simple    

Karisia Camping overview

A walking safari in unspoilt wilderness, escorted by Samburu and Maasai guides with an intimate knowledge of the wildlife, people and landscapes, is a memorable experience. We can book walking safaris in Kenya spending 2 nights or longer in the bush in simple but very comfortable mobile camps, with supplies and equipment carried by camels and staffed by the camp team who will look after you throughout the expedition. Once you have slept under the African stars, listened to animals calling, or the singing of Samburu warriors in the distance, you will have unforgettable memories of being close to nature in the wilds of Africa. Away from the roads and the commonly worn tourist trail, this area is in the heart of Rift Valley Kenya and walking safaris are the best way to really feel in touch with the bush and experience real Africa. Hear, see and smell the land and natural history around you and learn about the local culture and tribes people while you talk to your guides along the way. The walking safari can be added to any tailor made itinerary and is a perfect add on to Porini Rhino Camp.

The walks take place in stunning landscape starting from an unspoilt 3000 acre ranch dedicated exclusively to the management and conservation of wildlife. With 360 degree sweeping views of Mount Kenya to the South and the vast Frontier District to the North. Tumaren Ranch is home to Kerry Glenn and James Christian, who run the walking safaris. It is a window onto the romantic wilds of northern Kenya . and has good numbers of resident game and predators. An evening walk on the ranch typically show you Gerenuk, Impala, Steinbuck, Common Zebra, Grevy's Zebra, Elephant, Grant's Gazelle and Dikdiks. Several days spent in the area on the walking safaris will likely find the shyer or less common species such as Lesser Kudu, Eland, Hyena, Bat-eared Fox, Reticulated Giraffe or Hartebeest. Occasionally visitors may catch sight of the local Lions or Wilddogs.

The walking safaris are dedicated to conservation in Kenya and specifically in the particular areas where they operate. Since conservation and people are directly linked, the safaris actively support the communities, by employing local people, paying conservation fees to the communities, and purchasing all local goods whenever possible. The owners of the ranch have supported and encouraged sustainable, traditional honey production for the last seven years, by buying raw honey from the local Samburu amd Laikipia Maasai people and processing it, employing many local people. The locally produced honey is then delivered to markets in Nairobi , allowing the honey gatherers to sell their product to a much larger market.

"The walking safari - fantastic. We can only thank you for offering this option. The crew was outstanding , the food excellent and our head guide Gabriel , very knowledgeable and really added a sense of security to the adventure. A special thanks to whole camp crew and especially to Gabriel, Boniface, the chef, the person attending our table most of the time (he gave me a bottle of honey) and our very colourful camel attendant."
