Kenya’s Ancient North Walking Safari
₤ 8,644 (PPS)
Experiencing the smells, sights and sounds of the bush on foot is one of the most invigorating ways to explore East Africa and we recommend it to every guest. Discover the ancient, remote Mathews Mountains on foot with Samburu guides in this 10-day walking safari.
Away from safari vehicles, in the silence of the open wilderness you become more aware; noticing the large and small – watching the endangered gorilla play in thick forest, the cocktail ant protecting it’s beloved whistling thorn home in vast open plains, following leopard spoor through a dry river bed or admiring the tireless, meticulous work of harvester ants.
Discover Kenya's Ancient North at a Glance:
- 3 nights in Matthews Mountain at Kitich Forest Camp Samburu
- 3 nights with Karisia luxury mobile camps
- 2 nights in Tumaren camps having walked there on Day 7
- 3 nights in the Laikipia at Loisaba Tented Camp
- Then fly back to Nairobi, with a possible extension to the coast.
This wilderness walking itinerary is all about treasuring the less well-trodden paths of Kenya, without losing out on the concentrations of wildlife or the richness of the experience. Visit the eastern part of Samburu. Here you will find the rare arid country endemics: oryx, reticulated giraffe, gerunuk, Grevy's zebra and the lesser kudu.
