Karisia Walking Safaris specialises in walking safaris supported by camels. Our trips offer a unique perspective of not just the animals but the land they live in. On foot, we fine tune our senses and experience the country in vivid and exciting detail.

Best Walking Safari in Africa

What You Will See


Our walking safaris traverse beautiful landscapes that tell the story of a turbulent geologic past alongside the Rift Valley. Archeological artifacts like flints, shards, graves and pottery litter the ground, evidence of an equally rich cultural history. 

The wildlife in our part of Laikipia distinguishes the area for its diversity of large mammals, the greatest in Kenya. Elephants, the big cats, and other large predators thrive along side endangered species like the Grevy's Zebra, Wilddogs and Highland Hartebeest.


Conservation and Community


We got into walking safaris because of our interest in ecology and conservation. Since conservation and people are directly linked, we actively support the communities we work in by employing local people, paying conservation fees to the local communities, providing dry season grazing and helping to educate some needy students. Tumaren, Our private ranch in the laikipia region, is dedicated exclusively to the conservation of wildlife. since we began protecting it, the game has rebound spectacularly.


Meet Our Guides

We love natural history and it shows in our guiding.

We see plenty of big game on our walking safaris but we also catch a lot of sights that the gamedrive vehicles zoom right past. Tracking was always a large part of the human experience. With our Ndorobo trackers, we work hard to keep that tradition alive, scouring the ground for signs of game. Culture is an added dimension to our walks and we are all keenly aware to remind our visitors of our human history which began right beneath our feet.
