“Best Walking Safari in Africa.”


Hugely knowledgeable, enthusiastic about all aspects, however small, and fun too.
KERRY led our safari, and was superb as naturalist and leader...
All our questions were answered and even some that we didn’t know we had. EVERY member of the team was knowledgable and always ready to engage in communication to open our minds.
Great rapport with all of the guests. Hugely knowledgeable and reassuring. Wonderful trackers as well.
The guiding team behaved like friends showing you a new walk. They were careful and attentive to our comfort and, of course, safety; there was one Kenyan helper to every “patron” so that we were attended to before almost we had asked for something. Each had good English and treated us with kindness.
Jamie has been with us on each of our 3 trips, giving vast amounts of information about birds and plants - which was just what we wanted. Gabriel was also amazing (on the bird safari), every time the whole team have been amazing. Too many people to name - teaching our kids local games, etc.
Great way to spend 6 days in the African Bush
Both Kerry and James are informed and inspiring guides and naturalist. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
Kerry is very very experienced as are her staff.
Without any doubt, second to none, Karisia has the best guiding team. Lenhjo and Mr. Happy, are the best.
They are both so knowledgeable about the countryside, James particularly good on birds. I felt that they really wanted us to learn what we were looking at!
All of the team who travelled with us were very knowledgeable and were only too happy to share that knowledge with us. The team leader...Gabrielle was superb and if I remember correctly he was also training one of the others to be a team leader so he had his hands full.
Kerry Glen and Jamie Christian were our guides. They were very informative about the wildlife and plants and even though I work in Grevy’s zebra conservation in Samburu, I still learnt things about species that I don’t typically focus on.
Camping on Tumaren. Our guide was Rana and the tracker was Keshine: excellent and great fun
Between them, Jamie Christian and Boniface had extraordinarily deep knowledge of flora and fauna, the former being a professional ornithologist and the latter a Masai warrior.
Gabriel had a fantastic command of English and amazing knowledge. Extremely friendly and safe.
Both James Christian and Kerry Glen are extremely knowledgable on all aspects of the environment, flora and fauna
Our crew was patient, kind, highly involved in our experience. I was taught to track a kudu!”
Karisa’s team were very friendly, and definitely knew the bush, I have grown up in Kenya, but with these guides experienced a very different sense and insight.
Taught us swahili as well as lots of wildlife.
Best walking and guiding team. Especially Gabriel whom I have known for many years
Kerry and Jamie both inspire. Jamie knows birds, should that be of interest
Kerry & James the owner and their Senior Guide are all mentioned by name by our clients on their return to the US. Consistently praised over many years.
Amazing knowledge and wonderful sensitivity to moment - i.e. not interrupting but augmenting
We went on a two week safari with Karisia Walking Safaris and loved every minute of our time. The guides were exceptional and answered our hundreds of questions with great knowledge and patience
Karisia offers a true Kenyan wilderness cultural walking experience!
Great leader, movers/packers, cooks, guides. Super for all the family
Some of the best guides I’ve ever had the pleasure of being with on safari
Kerry Glen lead guided us, very experienced and with a great team.
I absolutely loved my day with Kerry and the crew, particularly Shillingi”
