Walk alongside or ride a camel through the wilderness
The unique connection and exhilarating ride or walk with your camel is definitely worth trying to mix up your safari journeys.
Unforgettable camel safaris are not just limited to Northern Africa… Kenya offers incredible camel trekking opportunities, at Samburu Intrepids in the Northern region of Samburu where there’s plenty of opportunity to travel by camel or alongside the camel, by foot, as well as further south now at Mbweha Cottages in Lake Nakuru area. Historically camels were not allowed south of the equator in order to prevent trade from Somalia, but now we can experience a wildlife safari in these beautiful areas, 12-feet high on top of a camel!
You can enjoy camel safaris for just a morning or afternoon, or if you really want to step into the shoes of local tribesmen, accompany a camel for a multi-day trek with a mobile safari.
Wildlife viewing from atop a camel can be more difficult in some ways than a traditional vehicle game drive because big game is more elusive due to potentially feeling more threatened by size of the caravan of camel and their singing and whistling warrior keepers. However, the unique connection and exhilarating ride or walk with your camel is definitely worth trying to mix up your safari journeys.
The excitement of searching for lions, waiting for the signal to be picked up is something I'll never forget - perfect for everyone who cares about Big Cats
