zaksame has indicated that this thread is about Kenya

I run a small charitable foundation in Eastern Province in Kenya where I take some doctors and specialists each year. The thing is this; once they finish their work each year I like to take them on a safari to Amboseli, Mara, Nakuru etc etc.

I've become completely disillusioned by safari drives, the noise, the crowds, the disturbance to the parks and the wildlife.... so this year I'd like to do a short walking safari somewhere close to Lake Naivasha (3/4 hours drive away even).

Does anyone know a 'RELIABLE' company who handles such trips around Laikipia, Samburu, Mount Kenya area (not hill walking)?

I've got lots of contacts but none who are specialists in this ares. My budget is quite small so I'm not sure what's available.

I could go to Nairobi and chat to one of those NICE gentlemen who hang around outside hotels offering safari tours, or I suppose I could just rip up my money and throw it in the fire....

Thanks in advance for your help.

PS. I'm a travel writer so I'd be willing to give a big promo to the right guide/company - there are 5 members of my group.

Ok,
I don't know why my comment to some answer is removed by another moderator, but I don't like it.
In general my comment was like this: please answer Zaksame by PM.
This in reaction to an obvious promo which you get if you ask about companies. Good thread Zaksame, but of course many spammers;).

Okay, so as Utrecht pointed out, answers to Brendan (zaksame) via PM only please. We sadlly already have a little too much Kenya tour operator spam to try and sift out of legit posts :(

Sorry guys. I should have thought before I posted this. SCAMSVILLE CENTRAL. If anyone wants to PM me I'd be delighted to hear from 'genuine' advisors.

Thanks all.

No problem Brendan.
I still think these threads should be kept possible in the future. Just for you and other genuine posters: add the fact that people should PM you and it's fine.
We don't want people to be totally put off not asking about reputable operators, certainly not in case where it comes down to certain specialisms like this.
Cheers
Michael

I recommend people who are going to read this thread , there are plenty of things which they can do on couch surfing and they can find good places somewhere around the world where they can have free places to stay.
