Karisia Walking Safaris

Karisia offers tailor-made walking safaris in Laikipia and other remote parts of northern Kenya.  The multi-day trips are led by Samburu guides, with the option to be guided 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 several parts of the Laikipia region, or as camel supported expeditions in lesser travelled areas such as the Karisia Hills and the Mathews Range to the north of Mount Kenya.

Accommodation & Facilities

The mobile camp used on the safaris is simple but comfortable, using large walk-in traditional-style safari tents.  Each tent is furnished with a large mattress on the floor and a table, 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.  Wonderful meals are freshly prepared over the camp fire each day with plenty of carefully chosen local produce.

Wildlife & Activities

As well as being an exhilarating experience in itself, walking through the bush with a top African guide allows guests to experience the smaller things often missed with vehicle based wildlife 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.
