There are a number of fun activities which add value to your experience in Africa and may be incorporated into your Itinerary. Some of the activities are country specific, so it is very dependent on where you are travelling. Some of these activities are available through the lodges and camps, whilst others need to be organised independently.
Here is a list of the more popular activities.
Arrangements to go with a guide with birding knowledge is always a great extra interest for those you want to get out and stretch the legs.
CAMEL WALK SAFARIS
Walking through the wilderness whilst the camel trains carry your camp. A most peaceful and fabulous way to experience Africa. Available to do in Kenya.
CONSERVATION TALKS AND OPERATIONS
We can arrange for talks by the local conservationists to educate guests on the challenges of looking after wildlife and give you a chance to visit the operations room and visit the tracker dogs when available.
Day trips can be arranged from your lodges but some of the more authentic tribes in Kenya and Ethiopia are worth a visit. We mostly do this by helicopter as they are in some pretty remote locations.
Day trips or safaris within Kenya.
Seasonal from November – March on the East African Coast.
Some lodges offer fly camping or alternatively you can stay in a mobile camp for art of your safari.
There are a number of competent riding outfits who offer day rides or safaris in Kenya, Tanzania and Botswana.

Many destinations have restrictions on walking and so if this is important to you, be sure to go to somewhere where this is possible.
