A Safari Wander – 7 Days / 6 Nights

$7,045.00

Safari means journey in Kiswahili, the language of East Africa, and Kenya is the home of safari. Its varied ecosystems and landscapes mean that the biodiversity here is higher than any other country in Africa. It has been the natural home of celebrity safaris, big game hunters and royalty since the 18th century and remains the most spectacular safari destination with unparalleled wildlife viewing.

A complete safari includes at least three of the main ecosystems: the semiarid dramatic landscapes of the north, the tropical woodlands of the Rift Valley and the lush savannahs of the Masai Mara. We recommend booking three nights in each area in order to give your guests the best possible safari.

Introduction

Safari means journey in Kiswahili, the language of East Africa, and Kenya is the home of safari.

It has been the natural home of celebrity safaris, big game hunters and royalty since the 18th century and remains the most spectacular safari destination with unparalleled wildlife viewing.

3 Nights in Laikipia

Supporting the second highest density of wildlife in Kenya, the vast 9,500 square kilometres Laikipia plateau stretches from the slopes of Mount Kenya in the south east to the edge of the Great Rift Valley in the west.

Ranging from dry savannah and open woodlands to dramatic canyons and low forested valleys, the Laikipia plateau is made up of a collection of extensive community owned ranches, private farms and wildlife conservancies working in unison on some of Kenya’s most effective conservation projects.

One of Kenya’s most exciting wilderness areas, Laikipia showcases the positive impact of community engagement on tourism and conservation as well as the benefit to local communities. From the ground-breaking partnership between Maasai and Samburu communities, private investors and conservation organisations on the 40,000 acre Ol Lentille Conservancy balancing tourism and economic development with ambitious conservation and community development programs to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy wildlife protection units at the forefront of protecting numerous species from extinction throughout Laikipia and the Grevy’s Zebra conservation work on the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

We are strong believers that each visitor to Kenya should experience the remarkable work being carried out in the Laikipia region, not only to enjoy the beauty and wildlife but to ensure that each visitor knows that everyone can make a difference and ensure the conservation of the wilderness, wildlife and communities that call it home.

You Stay at Karisia Ewaso Camp

Your Stay

  • 3 Nights
  • Full Board Plus – Dinner, Bed, Breakfast, Lunch and Activities
  • All Local Brands (Spirits, Wine and Beers) Included

A wonderful shady campsite on the edge of Ewaso Nyro River. The river bank has Fig Trees and Acacia trees lining it and we use these for our campsite. The Ewaso Nyiro River originates on Mt Kenya and the Aberdare Mountain Ranges and is the same river that runs through Samburu National Park. It is a life line to wildlife in the dry season.

The river is hugely popular with elephants who love to wallow in its muddy stretches as well as the Grevy’s Zebras and other animals who quench their thirst in the river. Tawny Eagles and a Martial Eagle are nesting in the tall trees and at night you will often hear Leopard and Lion calling.

LUXURY WALKING SAFARI

The Luxury walking safari with camels offers a little more extravagance and is a journey as the camp moves along with you with the help of the staff and camels (10-25 camels depending on the group size).

The 4 poster bed is left behind, but the king size mattress, feather pillow and duvet are not. Your accommodation is in a large, traditional, canvas tent with a chair, table, mirror, drinking water and a basin on the veranda. The bedding has 2 pillows, sheets and duvets, dressing gowns, towels, hot water bottles, solar lights and carpets.

You can request for a bucket shower that comes with plenty of hot water. There is a toilet behind each tent. If you want a family style tent, we can join two tents together so that the children feel secure. Meals are freshly prepared each day with breakfast and dinner served at the table and lunch is an informal buffet-style.

A choice of luxury beer, wine and spirits are also included for those who love to have their taste of alcohol in the wild.

3 Nights in the Mara North Conservancy.

Situated in southwest Kenya, the Mara North Conservancy is a beautiful private wilderness area spanning more than 30 000 hectares. It is home to a spectacular array of plants, reptiles, birds and mammals; including elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and large concentrations of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and other migratory wildlife.

Leopard Gorge, in the heart of the conservancy, is famous as the setting of countless BBC Big Cat Diaries and National Geographic documentaries. Neighbouring the well-known Maasai Mara National Reserve, this conservancy is vital for sustaining the famous Serengeti wildebeest migrations as well as the highly threatened African wild dog and black rhino.

Cheli & Peacock Safaris were fundamental in founding the 70,000 acre Mara North Conservancy (MNC), one of the largest community and private sector owned conservancies in the world. Regarded as one of Kenya’s most successful conservation models, MNC is an exclusive safari destination in a prime wildlife area, open only to the guests of the 12 member camps within it.
