Camel Safari

The camel also known as the ship of the desert is perfectly adapted and widely used throughout the arid Northern Kenya. Camels are usually used for carrying camping equipment and supplies rather than riding, and are ideal as back up on a trek through the African bushy wilderness.

Many camel safaris use vehicle back up to set up camp ahead of your arrival at a pre-arranged spot. Camels with saddles are usually also supplied for those who want to ride.

On this trekking expedition you will be accompanied by the local guides who use their indigenous knowledge to scout the dramatic wilderness for wild game flora and fauna accompanied by the camel train. A rare lifetime experience walking through the bush with only the sounds of the wild and the chiming of the camel bells as you travel at a relaxed pace.

The starkly beautiful pristine country is home to the Samburu and Rendille nomadic people, who still maintain and practice their customs traditional lifestyle despite the influence of the global village.

Fly camping is adventurous way to explore this wonderful terrain. The early ranchers would ride for days with their cattle in search of pasture.
