Camel safaris offer a unique perspective on not just the animals but the land they live in. Archeological artifacts like flints, shards, graves, and pottery litter the ground. Elephants, big cats, and other large predators thrive alongside endangered species.
A camel safari is the ideal means of traveling through northern Kenya. Our Walking safari supported by camels offers a unique perspective on 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. Our Safaris traverse beautiful landscapes that tell the story of turbulent geologic past along 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 alongside endangered species like the Grevy’s Zebra, Wild dogs, and Highland Hartebeest.We see plenty of big games on our walking safaris but we also catch a lot of sights that the game-drive 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 the 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.
Traversing the desert on the back of a camel gives a real perspective on how ancient civilizations and some modern desert communities get from one point to the other. It is also quite relaxing. This safari in the Chalbi desert also affords one the chance to interact with local communities such as the Rendille, the Turkana, the Samburu, and a few others. Learn from their traditional way of life by visiting their villages and exploring their culture. Few people would dare travel to a location that is rumored to be rich in potential due to the presence of oil because it is so far from metropolitan amenities and the verdant fields of our towns.
For those who do, it is typically for a job with several benefits, particularly the so-called hardship allowance; never for a fun vacation or exciting experience. Nevertheless, more and more Kenyans are starting to understand that northern Kenya is a real gem. The scenic and serene oases in the Chalbi Desert have plenty to offer for some worthwhile moments. Along with the fact that the existence of such a cool, vegetated location in such a huge area devoid of anything but sand and aridity is practically a miracle. A real understanding of how ancient civilizations and some contemporary desert people traveled is provided by riding a camel through the desert. It is also quite soothing.
