The walking safari itself was first developed in Zambia, which until now has remained the principal location for undertaking this activity. Indeed, until very recently, the walking safaris that we were able to put together in Kenya were very limited in extent, since – unlike in Zambia – walking is actually prohibited by the Kenyan National Parks authority. This precluded what actually provides the real 'buzz' - taking to your feet in an area that is frequented by really big game.
Recently, following recent developments in the provision of game parks here, it has now become possible to operate first-class walking safaris in Kenya. Other operators do not appear to have realised the potential of this, but, relying heavily on its experience in Zambia, AfricaAway has pioneered a whole new range of traditional walking safaris in Kenya. Indeed we believe that these now offer the best possible such experience in the whole of Africa: certainly the best value for money.
Although AfricaAway’s specialist KenyaAway website describes the full range of activities that can be undertaken in this, probably Africa’s leading tourist destination, it was felt that our ground-breaking new concept deserved a presence of its own, which is the reason why ‘Kenyan Walking Safaris’ has been developed as a stand-alone website.
The ‘About Us’ section gives you some background on AfricaAway itself, and our wide range of tourism products throughout Africa. Then ‘Walking Safaris’ describes in detail what is involved in this activity, for those new to the concept.
'Walking in Kenya' describes the strict limits within which camps were previously constrained by Kenyan Park rules so far as walking was concerned. It then explains the way in which we have been able to develop the classic Walking Safari concept here after all.
Next the ‘Our Itineraries’ section describes the various Kenyan walking safaris that we have put together for your enjoyment, which we are confident represent the very best that Africa has to offer in this area.
The final page provides you with the opportunity to view the wide variety of other websites that we have put together, and to 'Contact Us'.
