Camel Ridding

Departure Date



7 days



Maximum Seats


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.

Tents and supplies plus any personal needs such as beers, spirits and sodas, that you may purchase from the Club house before departing. The camp and shower are erected for you and the cook will keep you well fed for the day’s activities. Each afternoon you are free to join a nature walk accompanied by Samburu warriors through the bush.

It is a leisurely pace and you may change from walking to hiking, as you prefer. You will pass by Samburu Manyattas that your lead Moran can organize for you to visit. 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. This is not always included in the safari cost and is only a small amount offered as a courtesy. Each day you will have a picnic lunch in the bush, then combine to your next campsite, where your cook will be waiting for you.
