Only allowed inside the private conservancies, like the Naboisho Conservancy, walking on the Savannah is an exceptional experience. The duration of a walking safari is the clients’ choice, with Basecamp’s recommended duration being 5 nights, 6 days, but they also offer shorter or longer itineraries depending on guest preferences.
Led by local knowledgeable Masai guides, explore the Naboisho Conservancy and witness a wide variety of wildlife including thriving populations of lions, elephants, cheetah and leopards. The guide will also introduce clients to some of the finer details of the savannah; teaching them how to recognise animal footprints and droppings, which plants have medicinal properties, and who the ‘Small Five’ are.
Accommodation includes the luxury Wilderness Camp and Eagle View, as well as Basecamp Explorer’s mobile camp, Dorobo Fly Camp. This camp is designed in admiration and respect for the hunter-gatherers of the Masai people, known as the Dorobo. A stay at Eagle View comes at the end of the trail and is a special way to round of a trip in the Mara. The lodge is perfectly named for its panoramic views which are simply breath-taking.The itinerary includes 2 walks per day, with the warmest hours spent lounging and lunching in the shade of Acacia Trees.
Included in this walking trail package is full board accommodation, guided walking safaris by the Masai, sunset sundowner, return flight to the Mara from Nairobi, all ground transfers, optional visit to community projects and conservancy fees.
