Feel closer to your environment and take time to drink in the heady views – from the north, on the Matthew’s range with its magnificent plant life and views, to the Lewa conservancy, equally beautiful with its grasslands and famous for its rhino population and pioneering conservation practice or the beautiful Laikipia plateau and escarpment, where camel trains transport your camp from place to place together with the Samburu warriors. 

Head to the south and the outskirts of the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Here in the beautiful Loita Hills, you have rustic tents erected for you, transported by mules, whilst learning about the folklore of the Maasai people.

Stay at a wonderful camp on the outskirts of the Maasai Mara for a night beforehand and then start your Loita Hills 5-day walk (although we can reduce the time to 3 or 4 nights and tailor it according to you). Walking is the key – this is one of the prettiest areas!

Walk with Maasai and your mules and learn about their culture, as well as seeing gentle wildlife and magnificent waterfalls.

In Laikipia and the Great Rift Valley, one can either walk during the day, game-viewing on foot with your superb guide and stay overnight at a luxurious farmhouse or camp, or one can do a 4 or 5-day walking safari, accompanied by camels, right up to the magnificent Matthews range. This is all with one of the finest guides in Africa.

Walk in Laikipia aided by camels and headed up by Samburu tribesmen, who teach you all about their culture and the difficulties facing the se warriors in the 21st century. Swim in cool rivers en route.

Walk from your camp in Tsavo East for the full day, returning back to your gorgeous camp at night.

Walking really brings all your senses alive and is one of our favourite ways of exploring the bush.  This is the slow safari movement, where time is taken to make friendships, to understand different cultures, to focus on the brightly coloured feathers of the astounding birdlife and to walk downwind with a herd of elephant.

Learn all about the smaller things too – the termites and the dung beetle and the cyanide emitted by the centipede. All of these fascinating facets of Africa are waiting to be explored by you! But you will return refreshed, enriched with knowledge and revitalised!

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
