English Lakeland Ramblers, which has been leading walkers around Great Britain for more than 25 years, is eyeing new territory: East Africa. “Or, to put it another way,” says Ramblers CEO Jeff Kendrick, “we’re moving from placid sheep and cattle to sprightly impalas and klipspringer antelopes in one easy hop!” The first Kenya walking safari is set for Jan. 10-20. Trekkers will visit an extinct volcano in the Menengai Crater, the tropical Kakamega Forest Reserve and the vast plains of the Masai Mara. Don’t forget to wear sensible shoes.
