Walking safari holidays in Kenya

walking safari kenya Walking safaris in Kenya are a wonderful activity to enjoy on safari

Kenya is especially well suited to walking holiday. Climbing Mount Kenya offers more than enough to keep you going for a week, but this is suited more to dedicated hikers than to to casual ramblers. Other destinations that offers some great opportunities include Lake Naivasha (a good base for day hikes to Hell’s Gate and Mount Longonot), Kakamega Forest, Saiwa Swamp and Watamu. Even here, however, the options are better suited to independent travellers with a DIY approach than to organised tours.

For tourists looking to see wildlife from the perspective of being on foot and immersed in the environment, there are some concessions that arrange walking (guided) safaris if you are feeling more adventurous. This offers the unique experience of seeing wildlife in a different light - where the sounds, sights and smells will play a more pronounced role in your safari experience.
