Walking Wild offers anything from two to five nights fly camping out in the bush. Maasia guides walk clients through the bush from camp to camp, while the camels transport your luggage and camp. Eating out and sleeping in netted tents under the stars is a truly magical experience. Guests will get the comparatively rare opportunity to walk through the natural habitat of some to the finest examples of African wildlife. Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is one of the few remaining places in East Africa where black and white rhino can still be seen roaming wild along with plentiful elephants, buffalo, big cats and other plains game. The possibility offered by these safaris of viewing these animals while on foot is one of the most commonly given reasons for why people wish to walk in these conservancy areas.
Walking Wild guests will be met by Kitonga at the main Lewa airstrip or Lewa Wilderness lodge depending on arrival time. From there they will set on their walking safari through the Lewa landscapes. This kind of holiday is classified as ‘adventure tourism’. The environment is hot and dry; walks are undertaken during the cooler early hours of the day and late in the afternoon but can still be very strenuous for those not used to the heat and altitude. The walking takes place in areas that are sometimes only accessible on foot and where large and potentially dangerous wildlife live. It is therefore imperative that when agents or tour operators offer this safari, they make their clients fully aware of not just the safaris attractions but also of the physical demands, the style and remote location of the camps providing accommodation and of the environment in which the walks take place.
