Camel Ridding

Camel Safaris (7 Days)
AMT 420

Arabian knights in the Kenyan deserts. You could involve yourself in the discovery of both your stamina and the Kenyan scenery. Designed as a fully eco friendly activity, the camel safari involves the use of desert horses (camels) and to a lesser though not negligible extent, your feet as the chief means of transport.

Under the watchful eye of the wild safari lands most adopted guides, the Maasai, it is a programme filled with adventure. As one watches the scenery from the advantage point on the back of the camel, it is possible to get so incredibly close to the wildlife as they notice the camel more than they do you. This is the best travel alternative for the picture fanatic and advisable for all.

Amicabre books you into one of this desert caravans and ensures that you be taken through the most majestic of desert trails you have ever dreamt about. The raising sand dunes of the Chalbi desert, the mirages, the dust winds all make up for this experience. Make sure to try out this package be certain of an exposure close to no other.

As this is spontaneous, the Morans will discuss with the elders for permission for your entry and you will be asked to pay something towards the family for photography and viewing their homes.
