Karisia Walking Safaris
Karisia offers tailor-made walking safaris in Kenya. The multi-day trips are led either by one of their amazing Samburu guides or if requested by by Kenya born guides (and owners of Karisia) Kerry Glen and James Christian. In all cases they are great hosts and incredibly knowledgeable about Kenya’s history, its wildlife, people and landscapes. Walks can be arranged in many parts of Kenya such as the Laikipia region, or as camel supported expeditions in lesser travelled areas such as the Mathews Range to the North of Mount Kenya.
Accommodation & Facilities
The mobile camp used by Karisia on their safaris is very comfortable with walk-in traditional style safari tents. Each tent is furnished with a large mattress on the floor and a table and chair and basin outside. The basin is filled with hot water in the evenings and mornings. Behind each tent is a loo and a bucket shower, which is filled with hot water upon request. Meals are freshly prepared each day with hand chosen local produce and meats, and all of the cooking is done on a camp fire.
Wildlife & Activities
As well as being an exhilarating experience in itself, walking through the Kenyan bush with one of Karisia’s expert guides allows guests to experience the smaller things often missed with vehicle based game viewing – the tracks, the plants, the sounds, the smells. You may also be able to climb rocks, track wildlife, and swim in the river, and also enjoy the spontaneity of a private safari with no regulations dictating what you may or may not do.
