For a very different take on Kenya’s best safari experiences, try a camel ride through the country’s northern wilderness. Traverse the stark, arid landscape at a gentle pace to the soft tinkling of camel bells, and relax into the seductive rhythm of this unique safari.
You are bound for an exotic camel ride in the northern wastes of Kenya. After a dusty, two-hour drive through the arid country you will arrive in Laikipia, a region north of Mount Kenya known for its vast tracts of wilderness and superb wildlife. The area boasts the highest diversity of large mammals in Kenya and is home to several endangered species, notably Grévy’s zebra, African wild dog, and Jackson’s hartebeest.
Reach the camp in the late afternoon and get some time to relax, get to know the team, and meet the camels before supper around the fire. The four-day safari ahead of you is tailor-made to suit your group. The party will comprise your group, your guides, 11 camels, and their Samburu handlers – an exclusive safari just for you.
There are no vehicles involved in the venture; the size of the camp is limited to how much the camels can carry.
