Karisia Walking Safaris is based in Laikipia, Kenya where we have been operating for over 8 years. All our walking safaris are supported by camels and together with our team of Laikipia Masai and Samburu staff they move the entire camp each day to a new location. We have riding camels that accompany the walking party and these can be ridden whenever the terrain allows. The diversity of terrain is dramatic and each day you can be in a new environment and along with this comes rich wildlife and culture. Each safari is exclusive and tailor made to suit the group and most walks range between 3 and 6 nights.
