Camel Walking Safaris at Pinnacles, Rivers and Plains

Camel Walking Safaris specialises in walking safaris supported by camels. This experience offers a unique perspective of not just the animals but the land they live in. On foot, we fine tune our senses and experience the country in vivid and exciting details, traversing beautiful landscapes that tell the story of a turbulent geologic past alongside the Rift Valley. Archeological artifacts like flints, shards, graves and pottery litter the ground, evidence of an equally rich cultural history.

      From Nanyuki you will be met by a Karisia Guide and a driver and driven 3 hours to the start of our walk. It is not a long walk to the first camp, descending a winding sand river that passes close under a beautiful granite pinnacle called Nantodo. At the junction of the sand river and the Ewaso Nyiro river you will see camp set up under some shady umbrella-shaped Acacia trees. Nantodo rises abruptly out of arid plains and it is a landmark for hundreds of kilometres. After a refreshing lunch and a relaxing afternoon in the shade we will might hike up Nantodo and at the top toast the the Mathews Range and the Karisia Hills to our North. You and your guide will scan below for Greater Kudu or Elephant herds. Back at camp hot showers and cool drinks will be waiting for you.

      We will wake up very early and set off as the sun is rising; winding our way up the sand river hoping to see Klipspringers, Verreaux Eagle Owls, warthogs and elephants as they head for shady places. We will slowly walk up hill to our campsite on a ridge next to the pinnacle. Once it cools off we will walk up the awesome pinnacle called Ngai Suisui that has a dramatic 360 degree view of the area and is also the nesting site for a pair of Verreaux Eagles. Sundowners here always feel good!

      Stop At: Tumaren Camp / Karisia Walking Safaris, Kenya
      We will wake with the rising sun and walk down a dramatic valley to the river to a serene spot called Namasaa. The landscape is spectacular and we will walk along the rivers edge under some enormous Neutonia Trees, watching out for hippos in the deep pools before climbing out of the valley up a rocky river course where the fig trees cling to rocks and Klipspringers perch high on the rocks above. We break out of the valley and on to some rolling country where we will look for elephant and the peculiar Pancake Tortoises that live in cracks in the rocks. From camp we will hopefully see the local herds bringing their livestock to drink and in the evening meander along the river looking at the colourful birds.

      We will walk out of the valley early and drive to Tumaren for a bush brunch and a night of luxury in the huge tents with sweeping views across to the Laikipia Plateau, Mt Kenya and the Aberdares. The abundant plains game here will compliment the more reclusive denizens of the lower Ewaso.
