Set on one of Kenya’s top wildlife safari destinations, Walking Wild is the best place for other-worldly safari experience. The fly camping experience is unforgettable. As the name of the camp suggests, guests spend the holiday walking wild, and looking for serene camping spots in the conservancy. This fly camping lodge is in the plains of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which is a sanctuary for Kenya’s most popular wildlife species.
Lewa has stunning landscape, species like the big five, the rare five, and over 400 birds. It is a remarkable destination for its range of safari activities, all of which guests enjoy while staying in Walking Wild Camp.
A day in this unique safari lodge starts with a hearty breakfast. Later, guests break for a while to escape the scorching heat by basking under a mature acacia tree. Wildlife roams close to the guests, providing excellent sightings not possible anywhere else in the country. As the afternoon approaches, guests start walking looking for the best spot to pitch tents for the night.
