From Arusha, depart early and drive to Tarangire National Park.

Close to Arusha, 118 kilometres away, Tarangire National Park gets its name from the river that threads its way through the length of the reserve.  It is famous for its dense wildlife population which is most spectacular between June and September, the dry period.  During this time, thousands of animals – elephant, buffalo, giraffe, eland, wildebeest, kudu, hartebeest and the rarely seen oryx – migrate from the dry Masai steppe to the Tarangire River looking for water.  Lion, leopard and other predators follow the herds.  Tarangire has the largest population of elephant of any park in the northern

The Ngorongoro Crater, at 2,286 metres above sea level, is the largest unbroken caldera in the world.  Surrounded by very steep walls rising 610 metres from the crater floor, this natural amphitheatre measures 19.2 kilometres in diameter and 304²km in area.  It is home to up to 30,000 animals, almost half of which are wildebeest and zebra.  Buffalo, elephant, hippo, hyena, jackal, lion, ostrich, serval, warthog, bushbuck, eland, hartebeest, reedbuck, waterbuck and huge herds of both Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle are easily seen on the crater floor.

Thanks to anti-poaching patrols, the crater is now one of the few places in East Africa where visitors can be certain of seeing black rhino, with the number now approaching 25.  Leopard may occasionally be seen in the trees of the forest surrounding the crater, while cheetah are also present.  Countless flamingo form a pink blanket over the soda lakes, while more than 100 species of birds not found in the Serengeti have been spotted.  The crater, having been  declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which covers more than 8,300²km.

6 Nights Pinnacles, Rivers & Plains – Karisia, Kenya

Karisia – 6 Nights Pinnacles, Rivers & Plains – Kenya

This walking safari explores an area we call the Lower Ewaso Wilderness, defined by its roadless, steep country that borders our main river in the area, the Ewaso Nyiro River. This safari we offer like all our others as an exclusive trip but also as a group departure.

Sandwiched between Mount Kenya and the northern deserts, Laikipia is where Kenya’s wild and semi-arid northern frontier country begins. The region is made up of privately owned and community ranches centred around the Laikipia National Reserve. Known as one of Kenya’s best safari areas, the high plains of Laikipia feature vast open stretches of African savanna scattered with abundant game including: Grevy’s zebras, black rhino, lion, leopard, wild dogs, buffalo and thousands of elephants. Visitors can enjoy a luxury safari experience at a private lodge or stay in the worthwhile community-run lodges which support the local Samburu and Ilaikipiak and Mokogodo Maasai communities.

  • DIFFICULTY:              Moderate/Energetic
  • WILDLIFE:                  No Plains Game. Good for Birds
  • LANDSCAPES:          Excellent
  • CULTURE:                  Excellent
  • GREAT FOR KIDS:     For older Kids
  • DISTANCE:                 12-16 km each morning

Day  1:  Karisia Nantodo Camp

From Nanyuki you will be met by a Karisia Guide and a driver and driven 3 hours to the start of our walk. It is not a long walk to the first camp, descending a winding sand river that passes close under a beautiful granite pinnacle called Nantodo. At the junction of the sand river and the Ewaso Nyiro river you will see camp set up under some shady umbrella-shaped Acacia trees. Nantodo rises abruptly out of arid plains and it is a landmark for hundreds of kilometres.  After a refreshing lunch and a relaxing afternoon in the shade we will might hike up Nantodo and at the top toast the the Mathews Range and the Karisia Hills to our North. You and your guide will scan below for Greater Kudu or Elephant herds. Back at camp hot showers and cool drinks will be waiting for you. Dinner under the stars with the sound of the Nightjars serenade.

Nantodo camp is at the junction of a wide sand river and the Ewaso Nyiro river under some shady umbrella-shaped Acacia trees. Behind the camp beautiful granite pinnacle, Nantodo rises abruptly out of the arid plains and it is a landmark for miles and miles.

 

Day 2:  Karisia Ngain Suisui Camp  

We will wake up very early and set off as the sun is rising; winding our way up the sand river hoping to see Klipspringers, Verreaux Eagle Owls, warthogs and elephants as they head for shady places. We will slowly walk up hill to our campsite on a ridge next to the pinnacle. Once it cools off we will walk up the awesome pinnacle called Ngai Suisui that has a dramatic 360 degree view of the area and is also the nesting site for a pair of Verreaux Eagles. Sundowners here always feel good!

The campsite is near Ngai Suisui, the awesome pinnacle that juts out of the landscape. Ngai Suisui means ‘The Place where God blows the Wind’ that has a dramatic 360 degree view.

 Day 3: Karisia Nagaratat Camp

We will wake with the rising sun and walk down a dramatic valley to the river to a serene spot called Namasaa. The landscape is spectacular and we will walk along the rivers edge under some enormous Neutonia Trees, watching out for hippos in the deep pools before climbing out of the valley up a rocky river course where the fig trees cling to rocks and Klipspringers perch high on the rocks above. We break out of the valley and on to some rolling country where we will look for elephant and the peculiar Pancake Tortoises that live in cracks in the rocks. From camp we will hopefully see the local herds bringing their livestock to drink and in the evening meander along the river looking at the colourful birds.

After a hot shower under the stars dinner is served on the sand bank of the river.

A secluded camp under some towering fig trees on the Ewaso River. This is one of the main crossing points on this dramatic part of the Ewaso River and you sometimes see warriors bringing their livestock to drink. Greater Kudu and Elephants love this area and in the evenings you can search with flashlights for the shining eyes of the crocodiles in the river. At night you are serenaded by the Pearl Spotted Owlet.

Day 4: Leshashi  – Karisia Nalarai Camp

You will walk on upstream looking out for Greater Kudu, Waterbuck, Elephant and the incredible birds and scenery along the way and arrive at your camp by lunchtime. We can cool off in the pools and in the evening you will walk slowly along the river looking for an elusive local Leopard or watch the Baboons as they come to roost on the cliffs in the evening.

The camp is set on a sweeping corner of the Ewaso Nyiro River looking west at rocky cliffs and north to a granite outcrop called Lotim.

Day 5 – 6:  Karisia Tumaren Camp

We will walk out of the valley early and drive to Tumaren Camp for a bush brunch and a night of luxury in the huge tents with sweeping views across to the Laikipia Plateau, Mt Kenya and the Aberdares. The abundant plains game here will compliment the more reclusive denizens of the lower Ewaso.

In the afternoon we will head out on a drive or a walk and a night game drive could easily turn up some good predators like a Leopard or else an interesting nocturnal animal, like a Porcupine, an Aardvark or a Zorilla

Day 7:  Departure  

Game drive along and over the Laikipia Plateau to Nanyuki in time for any connections for onward travel. For those that would like to extend a second night at Tumaren, this can be easily arranged.

Karisia – 4 Night Tumaren Camp Based Safari

Karisia – 4 Night Tumaren Camp Based Safari

Enjoy walks and drives from the comfort of Tumaren, a beautifully furnished home camp that out of which we will base your safari. The  Satellite Camp is set out in a wildlife-rich area and is also used as a base camp for daily exploration. Camels are also available to be ridden or used to carry extra gear and snacks. Any combination of walks or ideas can work, so do not hesitate to tell us about how you might like to make your own safari.

Enjoy four days walking with camels, game-drives, rock climbing and relaxing in a wildlife paradise.

Day 1:  Arrival Tumaren Camp 

Loseramuru, a stunning granitic hillside, is a prominent feature on the horizon as visitors approach Tumaren Camp. On arrival in camp, the foreground is often times occupied by the plains game that visit a salt lick in front of camp. After a quick tour of your tent and the camp your guide will be able to tell you a bit about the area and current location of the best wildlife in the area. They will tell you about activities and setting up what you might want to do each day. Our camels are always available to accompany walkers and to tote gear and people to the wildest corners of our conservation area. Our Gameviewing Landscruisers are also always at the ready and can be used day or night to look for our the rich wildlife that distinguishes Laikipia as one of the most hopeful conservation models on the continent.

Overnight: Tumaren Camp  – Fully inclusive of all meals, activities and all drinks

Day 2 – 4 :  Safari Adventure 

Over the course of your 4 days at Tumaren you might choose to explore the Ewaso Nyiro River and the band of riparian vegetation that follows its banks. The river is an excellent spot for approaching the Elephant herds that come down to drink as well as the other animals attracted by the water or the lusher habitat. Exploring Nyasura and the other rock kopjes around Tumaren can also occupy mornings and evenings and rock climbing is always a great option for those that have an interest. Our local market days fall on specific days of the week and for those interested in culture it is worth inquiring about the timing of these colorful gatherings of merchandise and people coming to purchase and sell as well as to socialize.

Tumaren camp is an excellent place for multi generational families who want to give their younger or more active members an expeditious safari experience but while sharing that experience from a spacious camp or the comfort of a shady viewpoint.

Overnight: Tumaren Camp  – Fully inclusive of all meals, activities and all drinks

Day 5:  Departure 

Enjoy your last early morning activity, followed by breakfast and transfer back to Nanyuki for your onward flight back home
