Adventurous Fly Camping Expedition At Sabuk Stay overnight at the Sabuk Lodge before setting out on your fly camping safari. Wake up to the African bush, as your camel handlers load these unique pack animals for your camping trip. After an early breakfast, set off in the cool morning air, walking along the Ewaso Nyiro River and occasionally riding a camel. Break for a refreshing picnic luncheon under the shade of tall trees, when the sun climbs overhead. Reach your riverside campsite by the afternoon, and spend the rest of the day exploring the site and watching local villagers water their livestock at the river. The comfortable tents are equipped with mosquito nets overhead, allowing you the impossible luxury of stargazing as you drift off to sleep. Wake up to steaming mugs of tea, soothing birdsong and camel bells. Each day, after polishing off the sumptuous breakfast prepared by your camp cook, venture further into the wilderness as the camel train packs up and heads directly to the next site by the river. Spot elephants, buffalo, impala and zebra, among a great many other wildlife and birds on your safari. Relish picnic lunches and short naps before reaching each mobile campsite at your own pace. Relax with chilled sundowners and alfresco camp dinners by lantern light, before calling it a day. Along the trip, try a bit of rock climbing and show off your angling skills at the river.
