staying at one of the Governors lodges and camps in Kenya,
experience Africa 'up close and personal'
on this walking safari in a private concession.
A walking safari compliments the game viewing by vehicle and
is one of the best ways of discovering the real Africa
your vehicle behind and take a walking safari with one of
our experienced and qualified naturalists
for the true thrill of the bush. Down on the same level as
the animals you will experience the untamed beauty of the
Mara. Our walking safaris take place in a private concession
area adjacent to the Masai Mara. The scenery here very much
differs from the Masai Mara. Picturesque acacia trees characterise
the hilly landscape you can enjoy walking through either in
the morning or afternoon. The walk takes approx. 1½
to 2 hours.
You will track game, unsure what waits round the next corner,
giraffe, buffalo, hyena, zebra or even lion. You will catch
the scents and sounds of the wild Africa. And at the end of
it all waits a sumptuous bush barbecue breakfast complete
with champagne. Your drive back to the camp again is a game
drive through the Masai Mara. Afternoon walking safaris are
finished with sundowner drinks and canapes.
Participants in a walking safari should be in good health
and be reasonably fit and active. There is no path as such
and some parts of the walk lead through hilly and rocky areas.
Children under 12 years are, for safety reasons, not allowed
to participate in walking safaris.

launch site and offers easy access for the take off shortly
after sunrise. The flight lasts about an hour, with ample
opportunities for photography and video filming from this
unusual and often exciting perspective. After landing there
is a traditional champagne toast, followed by a breakfast
cooked on the Balloon burners in the middle of the rolling
plains of the Masai Mara. It is another tradition with us
that each passenger is presented with a certificate signed
by the pilot to commemorate the flight. The Balloon Safari
ends with a leisurely game drive which often allows you to
return to the animals seen from the air before our vehicles
