3 Night Walking Safaris Across Tumaren Ranch
The tall rocky outcrop will be visible for miles before you arrive. Its called Nyasura and it is certainly sacred ground, used for millennia by hunters and others seeking shelter. Ancient graves, flints and pounding stones called boluses are all in evidence around the rocks and particularly the caves. We will be camped beside Nyasura and in the evening after a jaunt about we will scale its slopes for a view and a sundowner. The remainder of the safari traverses a rich Acacia bush country that thrives with plains game as well as the predators that like to eat them. It is not uncommon to run into a Lion, Leopard, Hyena or Wilddog along the course of this safari.
With our riding camels carrying our heavier cameras, water and snacks we will venture forth each morning while the bulk of the remaining camels bear the tents, fly sheets and kitchen straight on to the next camp. This safari finishes on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River, the second largest river in Kenya.
Hugely popular with our Elephants who love to wallow in its muddy stretches, the river offers a great opportunity to approach, study and photograph these riveting animals. From the river camp you will be picked up and transferred to your next destination after a hearty goodbye from the entire team.
