You’ve heard of a Horseback Safari, but what about a Camel Safari in Kenya!
At Sosian we endeavour to offer each of our guests their perfect way to explore the breathtaking landscapes of Laikipia. Whether you are most at home in the saddle, galloping across open grasslands on a horseback safari or perhaps prefer to discover untainted bushland on a walking safari with one of our expert guides, there is something for every adventurer. For those seeking to venture even further from ‘the beaten track’ our exhilarating Camel Safaris offer an entirely new vantage point from which to take in our captivating surroundings. Unlike anything else you will experience, prepare for your trip of a lifetime with our top tips for your Camel Safari in Kenya.
- Cover up with long, loose and comfortable clothing. This will not only protect your skin from the african sun, but allow for freedom of movement throughout the ride and shield your skin from stray camel hairs!
- Wear sensible shoes, walking or hiking shoes are best… flip flops and loose sandals may not make the return trip.
- Before mounting your camel, listen carefully to your guide’s instructions. Even seasoned riders will find both the mount and dismount to be entirely different from the equestrian pursuits. Once you are on board, your camel will stand up with his back legs first, you must lean back to counter balance this.
- Tether your devices – cameras and phones have a long way to fall and risk being trampled by the herd, so be sure to attach them to your person and keep your holiday snaps safe.
- Let go of preconceptions … contrary to popular belief, camels are sweet natured beasts when well treated and properly cared for. Be kind to your camel and he will repay you with a safari experience you will never forget.
Our Sosian camels are extremely friendly, sometimes overly so! Meet yours when you stay with us and discover 24,000 acres in the heart of the Laikipia plateau on your first Camel Safari in Kenya.
