Authentic Programs (10)

This is essentially a walking safari but on the last 3 days we are supported by camels. An authentic program for activity adventure safari lovers, we set off to Lake Nakuru for some game viewing then climb the nearby Menengai Crater to the crater floor, visit coffee and tea farms for some agri-tourism aspects. The day trip to Aberdares national park gives us a chance to view some awesome deep falling waterfalls. Finally we do the the camel safari. Being on top of a camel offers a different view of the terrain, flora and fauna in the region we visit. The camels form a train as we are led from one mobile camp to another over the 3 day trek.

Day  1: Early morning transfer to Lake Nakuru National Park for a full day game drive. Lake Nakuru national park is a world famous bird and rhino sanctuary. Millions of flamingos paint this lake with its shimmering pink colour. Other birds include pelicans, ostrich, marabou, ibis, eagles, vultures, woodpeckers, touracos, barbets, among others.  Apart from the bird life, Lake Nakuru is abundant with wild game including lions, leopard, rhinos, impalas, gazelles, eland, zebra, buffalo, and giraffe. Here you have unmatched chances of spotting the rare Rhinos and leopards than in most of the other parks. Overnight at Lake Nakuru Lodge Campsite.

Day  2: After breakfast we go on a walking safari down to the floor of Menengai Crater. We explore and enjoy scenery and the nature trails of the Menengai hills and the Menengai Crater. The Crater is one of the largest calderas of the world; it is an extinct volcano covering an area of 90 sq. Km with 12 km in diameter and 485 metres in depth. The summit of the crater is 7,474 ft (2,278 m.)A.S.L It’s so picturesque and we will get a splendid opportunity to take memorable photos. After lunch we visit a nearby coffee and tea estate and engage in picking activities and learn the process they go through before reaching our tables. Sandai Farm Cottages for overnight.

Other animals that may be observed in the park include African lions, leopards, baboons, and black and white Colobus monkeys and Sykes monkeys.

With 360 degree sweeping views of Mount Kenya to the South and the vast Frontier District to the North, Tumaren is a window onto the romantic wilds of northern Kenya. By managing the security of several neighbouring conservation areas, Tumaren is also blessed with healthy numbers of game and predators. Overnight in Comfortable supported Mobile Camp.

 Day  5:  After a hearty breakfast begin camel supported walking safari. We see tall rocky outcrops in the distant. The tall rocky outcrop will be visible for miles before we arrive. They have been used for millennia by hunters and others seeking shelter. Ancient graves, flints and pounding stones called boluses are all in evidence around the rocks. We will be camped beside the outcrop and in the evening after a jaunt about we will scale its slopes for a view and a sundowner. Comfortable supported Mobile Camp at Nayasura.

Day  6:  From  Nayasura walk north towards Nyarara Camp. The remainder of the safari traverses a rich Acacia bush country that thrives with plains game as well as the predators that like to eat them.

 Day  7: Conclude the Camel Safari then drive back to Nairobi with a lunch stop en-route. Overnight at Rock House Guest Home or drop off at your next destination.

Climbing Kilimanjaro

Written by on 07/05/2013

Kilimanjaro. The name itself is a mystery wreathed in clouds. It might mean Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness or Mountain of Caravans. Or it might not. The local people, the Wachagga, don't even have a name for the whole massif, only Kipoo (now known as Kibo) for the familiar snowy peak that stands imperious, overseer of the continent, the summit of Africa.

Mountain Biking

Written by on 26/01/2017

A low impact Cycling challenge that circumnavigates the entire circumference of Mount Kenya. This challenge offers cycling enthusiasts an unmatched active holiday alternative in Kenya. Our mapped route around Mount Kenya is set up with the rider’s maximum safety in mind and planned to avoid riding through any busy highways or populous town centres while offering great insights into the contrasting flora/fauna and tribes living around Mount Kenya.  Accommodation throughout the mountain bike trek is either in mobile camps (supported) or use of local lodges found along the route. This challenge is suitable for accomplished mountain bikers capable of completing the course and also for amateurs or riders doing it for fun. 

Let's go to our village

Written by on 26/01/2017

A great authentic experience! So much to do, but at a relaxing pace. Walk through the villages and interact freely with the locals. Visit the Chagga underground tunnels, waterfalls (walk and swim), lunch, coffee farms, de-husk  roast and crush your own coffee and drink it, a live museum - which was amazing by the way. Oh, and a stop at a banana beer bar on the way home.
