Walking Wild

This is a walking safari experience in Maasai land through some of Kenya's best wildlife-viewing habitats - the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and two Maasai Community Conservation Areas: Il Ngwesi and Lekurruki.  These 3 areas provide some of the most stunning landscapes in Africa and are home to a wide variety of game including the "Big Five" (rhino, elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo), over 420 species of birds, the reticulated giraffe, cheetahs, numerous different antelopes, and endangered species such as the Grevy's Zebra and Sitatunga. 

Professional guides lead the 3 to 5 day walking safari starting at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, recognized as one of Africa's top safari destinations.  The walking route runs across Lewa through Il Ngwesi and ends at Lekurruki, with all 5 nights spent camping out under the stars (the 3 night safari ends at Il Ngwesi).

Guests will traverse a variety of ecosystems, enabling them to experience the diversity of flora and fauna that the areas have to offer. The focus of the safari is on learning about the ecosystems as well as the local Maasai culture. Guests will be taught tracking techniques and other vital bush skills, as well as how to identify and understand the behavior of insects, plants, and animals as they come across. Local Maasai morani (warriors) will join the guests to give insight into traditional Maasai customs.
