Camping Safari in Kenya

6 nights & 7 days discovering kenya

safari cost best season activities

A camping safari staying in small private mobile camps is one of the best ways to experience Kenya's natural attractions. The safari has been designed to include a variety of habitat so that the widest diversity of wildlife can be seen. The camps are sited in private conservancies so that walking and night drives may be taken but are also conveniently located for easy access to Amboseli and Nakuru national parks and the Mara.

Transport is by four-wheel-drive Toyota Landcruiser with roof hatches. Your driver-guide is a wildlife and nature expert and member of the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association. A safari cook travels with the safari. At each camp site we will have staff who do the work like washing up, heating water for showers, doing the cooking and serving the food but clients also help put up and take down their tents. Equipment is carried in a trailer behind the vehicle - when in camp the trailer is removed and game drives are done in the vehicle. Tents are heavy-duty canvas dome tents for 2 persons. Clients bring their own sleeping bag and a towel but all other camp furniture and equipment is provided. Food is of the same quality as in a luxury camp - produced by an experienced safari cook. Camps are set up on exclusive campsites. Drinks other than mineral water are not included but a stop is made en route to each camp to enable you to buy wine, beer or soft drinks as required.
