Why Wild Camping
Wild camping is a perfect way to enjoy the wild in a timeless fashion. Man has been walking these plains for millennia. While on foot you can gather a true understanding of the bush as there is nothing to detach you from nature, our guides explain your surroundings from the smallest of signs to the largest land mammals. A wild camping trip brings you closer to nature and ideally complements your Kenya holiday experience.
Cooking under the stars is a bonding experience with the guides. It gives the adventurous safari traveler a sense of togetherness and makes one realize how the simplest things such as watching the sky, are forgotten in our modern world.
The walking will not be strenuous and there will be many intervals at various points of interest. The distance covered will be approximately 10km (allow 3-4 hours) on the first day and 13km (allow 4-5 hours) on the second day. As the walk is run on an exclusive basis we are flexible and can reduce it if you feel you are not fit enough.
A lightweight fly-camp, staffed by a cook and a camp hand, will be set up in advance of arrival. Small dome tents for 2 pax are equipped with camp beds, bedrolls, chairs and a washstand. Basic bathroom facilities are available (long drop toilet and bush shower). A lightweight mess shelter will be used in the event of rain.
