Nature Walk Safaris
The activity allows guests to go on slow paced, guided walks with the primary objective to explore different wildlife species along the bush, some of the details overlooked on game drives become more obvious from the slower pace and lower angle of being on foot as you will get an authentic insight of the bush rather than simply observing it
At Explorer Kenya, we customize to highlight what you want to see during your nature trip, including butterflies, birds, plant species, historical and archeological sites, ancient rock art paintings, rivers, lakes, natural formations and more. Some of these places include:
