What You Will See
To best see any place you have to get out and feel it; to smell it, to see it and to walk through it. Our walking safaris traverse the very country where our genus first evolved. When you walk past the largest land mammals on Earth you can not help but reflect on exactly what our species has been doing for the majority of its time on this planet. This is what it is like to be human. This is, actually the 'real world'.
Our friends in the local Laikipia Masai and Samburu communities make up the teams that pilot every trip. Our area has a very rich traditional culture and on market days all the warriors and women come dressed in their finest adornments.
