Laikipia Camel Safaris

Eleanor and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

A camel safari is the ideal way to travel through the wilds of Northern Kenya, escaping the constraints of a vehicle (cars can't get here anyway), and where the camel train is the only traffic for miles around you.

Every day is unique, and each safari is specially designed to suit different interests or needs, catering for luxury without compromising adventure. On safari you walk through a spectacular variety of country from high montane forest, to broad sand rivers or luggas, and with the changes in habitat there comes an attendant change in ecology and wildlife.

Each day you will wake up to the sun rise, eat a delicious breakfast prepared by the chefs, and begin the journey accompanied by a Laikipia Masai tracker and a few riding camels who carry your refreshments and day-packs. The pack camels and mobile camp usually follow behind, passing to set up the next camp and allow you to spend time investigating things of interest you see on the way. By the time you arrive at the next camp a cool drink and gourmet lunch is waiting for you!

Afternoons are generally spent relaxing, reading or enjoying the scenery before going for an evening walk and sundowners. In the evening hot showers are offered before drinks by the fire and a three course dinner under the stars, reminding you how simple true luxury really can be. We recommend anything from five to seven day camel safaris followed by a few days at one of the fabulous lodges in the Laikipia area at the end of your safari.
