Which is the best group size for a walking safari in Kenya

YOU ASKED


We want to book a walking safari in Kenya. What is the ideal group size for a walking safari?


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES


The atmosphere of a walking safari in Kenya can be made or broken by the group size. With most companies if they have a scheduled group departure the have the right to set the group size. This is unlike in a private walking tour whereby the client sets the numbers.

Your walking safari operator should be open with you and state the maximum and minimum numbers of group size. If this information is not freely given, you have a right to demand an answer before putting down a deposit.

So what is the right group size for a walking safari in Kenya? The ideal upper limit is 10-12 clients more than this "you-leave-a-lot-of-footprints". Consider walking is not just a bout following a trail - it has the social part of getting to know your fellow travelers and with big group this may not be possible.

There should also be a good ratio of safari guide to client. Work on the basis of 1:6.
