Group Camping and Overland safari

Overland Safari is arguably the ultimate way to explore Kenya, here people of like minded come together to form a group and travel through major attractions in Kenya that includes; the famous wildlife national parks, the Great Rift Valley Lakes, white sandy Beaches, Hills, Mountains among other attractions in Kenya. An Camping/Overland safari would be anything from three days to three weeks depending on the selected destinations.

Major Attractions and Activities on an Overland Safari

From the long list of attractions in Kenya, we have singled out a few that we highly recommend for Camping/Overland safari tour; this would include a wildlife game drive at Masai Mara, Samburu or Amboseli national reserve; birds watching in Lake Nakuru and Lake Baringo, relaxing and sunbathing in one of the un-spoilt beaches at the coast, climbing Mount Kenya, tour of Lake Victoria, cultural visit to Turkana and Samburu, among many other attractions in Kenya.

Roads and Trucks

Kenya is huge and covering most of the major attractions on an overland safari will require covering thousands of kilometers, some of the drives will be long and may have a few patches where the roads are rough and bumpy, and other places after heavy rains the roads and the bridges might be swept away, this are some of the hiccups that make an overland safari more adventurous. But, we can assure you with our team of expert and you being flexible nothing will spoil your trip, because sometimes will be forced to slightly alter the itinerary to pass through the hiccups.

Due to the long and sometimes difficult conditions, our overland trucks are custom built with comfortable seats and an ample leg room. Each overland truck carries everything needed for a safari, a fully equipped kitchen that include a fridge, enough food, cutlery, pots, pans, gas stove and so on. The trucks have secure lock up facilities for your bags and a safe for your valuables, a power inverter with a 220v – 240v socket to charge the phones, cameras, laptops and so on.

An Overland safari usually has 3 crew members (a Driver, Trip Leader and a Cook), our crew has a wealth of experience traveling through this route for years and they are more than happy to share with you the experience.

Accommodation

Accommodation while in an Overland safari can vary from bush campsites in the middle of a wilderness to fully luxurious hotels and lodges; it usually depends with the choice of the group and what is available. On a normal Overland route, accommodation is usually in campsite with optional lodges on the way, a tent is usually shared by two people; they are large enough for two, with mosquito nets over the door and window areas, a sewn in ground sheet and a separate flysheet; You will have to provide your own sleeping bag, sleeping mat and a pillow if you need one. Most of the campsites are secure and have the basic facilities (hot shower, toilet and a washing area).

Food

Our normal day meals would consist of breakfast (bread, spreads and cereals with a hot breakfast in between the days); an en-route self prepared sandwich lunch with all the ingredients provided; a cooked dinner in the evening, the dinner menus would vary from curries, stews, pastas, BBQ's, down to African cuisines or any special request from the group (vegetarian, vegan or people with certain food allergies). Where fresh product is required, the menu may change due of the availability to the product in the area.
