A Kenya Camping safari is one of the most rewarding ways of being on safari! Here one has the flexibility to spend the day exactly as one chooses, with ones guide.
One of the best areas is the Masai Mara – which offers world class game viewing – if not the best – especially at the time of the wildebeest migration from July through to October. Here one can have a luxury, private tented camp erected just for your party – whether two of you or a family or group of friends! Other parks which are superb are Meru and Samburu. I love a private mobile safari because it means that you have complete flexibility – spending as long as you wish at sightings and having your professional guide and vehicle all to yourself, so if you want to spend time learning about the behaviour of a bat eared fox or looking at a rare bird or even brushing up on your photographic skills, it allows you the freedom and comfort to do this and not worry about others in the vehicle!
The tents are large and luxurious, have en suite bathrooms with hot water showers and flush toilets and the meals served under canvas are some of the best! This is the very best way of being on safari – and far more intimate.
If you want to join a safari, then we do have one set departure safari which takes in the Masai Mara, Samburu and then staying at a private home in the Rift Valley with a great friend of ours who is a wonderful guide!
Otherwise, we also do some lovely walking safaris for a week or less into the Loita Hills on the edge of the Masai Mara – where you camp out at night in a small pup tent, but everything is done for you and again, you have your own private guide who is just superb, hot water for showers and a short drop loo. Walking is one of the finest ways of being on safari! We also have a camp set up for our riding safaris in the Masai Mara and the Chyulu Hills – one hears the night sounds so much more clearly under canvas and the scent of the plants and the wind waft through your gauze windows – it really is lovely! Lastly, we have camel assisted walking safaris where one camps out at night, in the Laikipia and Samburu regions too which is also sensational and allows one to learn more about the tribal culture of the semi-nomadic Samburu tribe. Coming from Kenya, we would love to assist you with your Kenyan camping safari!
