Safaris in Kenya; Theidea
behind the walking safari is to be able to "watch"
wildlife rather than to "spot" wildlife
in relation to its ecology by hearing, feeling and
smelling the bush as they do, and more importantly,
experiencing the small wonders of the African bush
i.e. from ant lions to dung beetles.
"watching" of wildlife allows guests to
see the highly specialized behavior of the animals
in areas where vehicles cannot possible reach or interfere
with their on-going activities.
in the walking Safaris requires patience and peace
so not to startle the animals being watched, adding
to the safety measure in this activity. The quality
of experience is top notch especially for new safari
Walking Safaris are undertaken to give you an optimal
experience - walking when its cool and refreshing,
and relaxing when it's hot and sunny.
safaris are not mutually exclusive, a photographic
safari does rule out the opportunity to do some walking
(or any other activity) and vice versa. A combination
is perfect for those who enjoy walking but also want
the best wildlife photographic opportunities.
single most popular kind of trip that we send is a
combination of walking and game driving. For some
itineraries this may be walking and driving in the
same location (a walk in the morning and a drive in
the evening) and for others it may mean a walking
trip in one area and a game drive safari in another.
areas mentioned below are great for Walking Safari
during an African Spice Safaris Kenya Package Tour.

Lake Game Conservancy (Naivasha, Kenya)
Lake Game Sanctuary gets its name
from the "Crater Lake", which
is a green alkaline Lake at the center of
an extinct volcano. It is a lesser Lake
in the Rift Valley but a place where nature
is at its best, with the algae-rich green
lake contrasting very well with the pink
from flamingos which are residents in the
lake. Besides the flamingos, the Park has
over 170 species of birds.
You will be spoiled for choice when it comes
to Walking Safaris at Crater Lake. You can
walk as much or as little as you choose.
Start off with the open plains dotted with
Yellow-fever trees. Here the terrain is
flat, full of giraffes, zebras, Thompson
& Grant's gazelles, elands, hartebeests,
energetic you may walk on the rim of the
crater, which though rocky, gives you a
wide angle of the lake below. Wind up your
walk by doing a hike around the lake, here
is where you will find Colobus Monkeys doing
acrobatic moves on the tall trees.
Gate National Park (Lake Naivasha, Rift
Gate National Park is 68.25km², one
of the smaller national parks in Kenya managed
by Kenya Wildlife Service. The Park has
interesting topography of open savanna plains
surrounded by huge volcanic rock boundaries.
There are camphor and acacia trees all over
and this is where to look for giraffes as
they mainly feed on them.
unique about Hell's Gate National Park is
the fact that you can walk in the Park with
good sightings of giraffes, zebras, warthogs
and many types of gazelles. Walking in Hell's
Gate can be divided into 2 sections - the
first 9 km's which are on flat terrain and
the Hell's Gate gorge, which is accessed
by descending into a steep canyon with running
water from geysers and wild vegetation.
In the Side Gorge, which is only accessible
during the dry periods, the rocks have split
to leave only a walking path.

the eastern side of Lake Naivasha. The terrain

and impalas. It is also a heaven for birds

spot from the island.
on Crescent Island walk: if you have put
on your walking boots, allow half a day
for the Crescent Island walk so that you
can circumnavigate the peninsula and see
the lake from different angles.
remember safari guides make or break a walking
tour - so get a competent naturalist guide
to walk with you at Crescent Island. He
will help you not only to identify animals
and birds but also to interpret their behavior,
to show you plants with medicinal value
etc and above all he (if he is a good naturalist)
won't rush you through the walk.

up of what mass tourism is all about.
