Walking Safaris in Kenya

October 11 2016


Kicheche Camps offer escorted walking safaris, with overnight stays in a fly-camp, from all of their Mara Camps. These walking excursions are led by one of Kicheche’s senior silver KPSGA guides and an armed ranger. It is an outstanding opportunity to see the Mara from a completely different perspective and also offers some welcome exercise whilst on safari. You will explore the smaller aspects of savannah life such as birds, grasses, and insects. You may even be lucky enough to encounter some larger game en-route.

A walking safari is the perfect antidote to a traffic-jammed, tweet-filled, smartphone obsessed world. 

Upon reaching the fly-camp, a welcome bush shower awaits you. This is followed by a cold gin and tonic and dinner under the stars. Your evening soundtrack will include cicadas, the whooping of hyenas, the roar of lions and the keening of jackals. This may either interrupt your star gazing or another course of impossibly good bush cuisine. Finally, retire to your tent and a night as close to nature as Kenya can deliver. You are awoken at dawn with a piping pot of coffee before a cool morning walk.

Daily departure is at 15h00 with a return the following day at 10h00. Bookings should be made in advance and any bookings made whilst at Kicheche will be strictly subject to availability. Each walking safari requires a minimum of two people and is limited to a maximum of six. Walking is available for children aged 12 and above, but only at the discretion of the guide.
