Tour Details

The Naboisho Conservancy of the Greater Masai Mara is perfect walking safari territory and our Kenya head guide, Roelof Schutte, loves nothing more than taking guests to explore this wild place on foot. This trip is an ideal compromise for those wanting more than just one night of fly-camping but without either the time or fi tness levels for our longer cross-Mara expedition (“Traverse the Mara Conservancies on foot”). Roelof is hugely experienced at leading walking safaris and has guided fi lm- and documentary-makers across Kenya and sub-Saharan Africa, and is a passionate conservationist and wildlife photographer.

You will be walking in a big game area so should be prepared to encounter anything, including lion or buffalo, and must always follow the instructions of Roelof to ensure your safety. Exploring on foot offers a unique perspective and is reminiscent of the early days of safari, where exploration was largely on foot or horseback. This slower, quieter approach allows you to get closer to more skittish wildlife, listen to birdcalls and track animals from their signs in the bush. For experienced safari-goers, this is the ultimate way to experience a safari and connect with the landscape you are exploring.

Medium-High. Please advise at time of booking so we  can tailor the walking to your interests – either more focussed on the wild life or more focussed on long trekking. Our main programme is based on  walking up to 20km per day, so requires a good level of fitness.

Itinerary

Day 1

A day on safari at Naboisho Camp (either from a longer stay or arriving today) enjoying safari activities such as game drives or village visits in the afternoon. In the evening, meet your Safari expert, Roelof, for a briefing about the days ahead.

Day 2

Depart on foot from camp in the early morning with a daypack containing a picnic breakfast and snacks, stopping along the way to track wildlife, learn about the fl ora and fauna you encounter, or simply to admire the scenery. You will typically walk for the whole morning, stopping in a shady spot at midday for a rest, and then heading out on a shorter walk in the afternoon to reach the camp. Depending on guests’ interests and fitness levels, wildlife sightings, and weather, it may also be possible to arrive at the fly camp for a late lunch and siesta there and head out in the afternoon from camp. The evening is spent enjoying a campfire re-cooked dinner, drinks around the fire and spectacular stargazing if the sky is clear, and you will fall asleep to the sounds of the bush all around you.

Day 3

The second day of walking, following a similar pattern to the previous day. If the camp stays in the same location – see note below – you will go out on separate morning and afternoon walks, returning to camp to escape the heat of the day. If the fly camp is moved by our logistics team, this will be a full day of walking and exploring a new area, arriving in camp around 4 pm for a second evening out in the wilds. Overnight

Day 4

An early start for your walk back to Naboisho Camp this morning where you can collect your bags and be driven to the airstrip for the 11 am flight out. (If your fly camp is too far away, you will be met part way by a driver from camp with
your luggage and taken straight to the airstrip). Alternatively, you can extend your stay and spend another night or two at Naboisho Camp.
