Walking in Kenya

March 19, 2012  By: Gretchen

There is nothing more exhilarating than to be on foot in one of Africa’s premium wildlife areas.   Zambia is known as the birthplace of the walking safari, but you can take a walk in dozens of different countries and parks.  Even if a walking safari isn’t your first choice of trip, you can take a walk from many camps and it will give you a break from the vehicle and allow you to see the bush from an entirely new perspective.

Walking out of Naboisho Camp together with camp manager and excellent walking guide Roelof Schutte offers a fantastic experience in Kenya.  Just last week on one of the walks there were sightings of 2 lionesses surrounded by gazelle, zebra, wildebeest, ostrich, topi and giraffe – not to mention the cries of hunting hyena all around.

Gorges and valleys in Naboisho that can be accessed by no other way than foot offer terrain and game experiences that the savanna around them cannot. It is in these valleys and on the very edge of the great plains where Roelof is able to use his extensive bush tracking experience to amazing effect.

Want to feel the savanna underfoot?  We can customize your trip to include a walk or build your entire safari around activities outside of the vehicle.  Just call us to get started.
