Kenya Camel Safari : 7 Days

7 Days - Nairobi to Nairobi
Thid are neither a luxury safari, nor rough and uncomfortable. You travel through unspoilt areas of North. Central Kenya, Samburu country.

Here your are guided by local Samburu people. The safari is led by local warriors, some of whom can inform you of the local customs and explain what you see as you trek along. It is not arduous, you may walk or ride as you choose, will a support vehicle carrying tile luggage, tents and supplies, plus any personal needs, such as beers, spirits and sodas. That you may purchase from the Club house before departing. The camp and shower are erected for you, and the cook will keep you well fed for the days activities. Each afternoon you are free to join a nature walk accompanied by Samburu Morans through the bush - never quite sure what you might bump into. .

Day 1: Maralal
Free transfer departs from Nairobi at 09:00am traveling via Nyahururu, Rumuruti to our Maralal Camel Club for overnight in self contained Bandas [cottages].

Day2: Camel Trekking or Walking
After breakfast departure with your camels and Morans into the bush. You will trek through the area never quite sure what you will see. It should be remembered that this safari is not primarily a game viewing safari, it is one led by, and in total harmony with the local Samburu people. Picnic lunch en route, afternoon arrival at your pre-prepared camp where your cook will be ready to offer you afternoon tea and snacks. Later on you may decide to take a guided walk through the bush before dinner. Overnight under the stars.

Days 3, 4 and 5: Camel Trekking / Walking
Mattresses pad the locally made wooden frames on the camels, and after breakfast you set out through the bush either riding or walking as you choose. It is a leisurely pace, and you may change from walking to riding as you prefer. You will pass by Samburu Manyattas that your lead Moran can organize for you to visit. As this is spontaneous, the Morans will discuss with the elders for permission for your entering, and you will be asked to pay something towards the family [or taking pictures and viewing their homes. This is not included in the safari cost and is only a small amount offered as a courtesy. Each day}' you will have a picnic lunch in the bush, and then continue to your next campsite, where your cook will be waiting for you. Most evenings are beside water and a shower will be erected for you to wash the dust off [water allowing].

Day 6 Maralal
The camel trek ends late morning back at the Club house. Here you will take lunch before walking with your Moran guides into the frontier town of MaralaI. There are crafts to see, the Sarnburu market, and a way of life different from other places you might have visited on your holiday. In the evening the Morans and their ladies will dance for you at the Club where you will be free to take as many pictures as you want, even to join in the dancing if you reel up to it!!. This night you are in the Bandas again and can clean up before your free return transfer in the morning.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
