What is a Camel Safari?


A camel safari is the ideal means of traveling through northern Kenya. Escape the constraints of a vehicle and lose yourself in the wilds where the camel train is the only traffic for miles. Every day is unique and every safari is custom designed to suit your interests and needs.

Adventure and Luxury in the Bush

A motto of Karisia Walking Safaris is: cater for Luxury without compromising adventure. We walk through a great variety of country from high montane forest to broad sand rivers called luggas. With the changes in habitat come changes in ecology, habitat and wildlife. On safari we awake with the rising sun, eat a delicious breakfast prepared by our chefs, and begin the journey. We are accompanied by a Laikipia Masai tracker and a few riding camels who carry our refreshments and day-packs. Our pack camels follow behind with our camp, but often times pass us as we investigate the things we encounter along the way. We arrive at our next camp to be greeted with a cool drink and a gourmet lunch. The afternoon is normally spent relaxing, enjoying a river, or a read before going for an evening walk and sundowner. In the evening, hot showers are offered before drinks by the fire and a three-course dinner under the stars. With your feet up and a cool drink in your hand, you are reminded how simple true luxury really is.
