Explore on foot, the off beaten trails of the wild side Africa, covering guided nature & wildlife safari across Chyulu Hills, hiking adventure, and other activities around the region.

DAY 01

DAY 01- Nairobi - Kibwezi

  • Depart from Nairobi around 08:00 am, and proceed towards Kibwezi on a 3-hour drive down Mombasa road.

  • At Kibwezi, leave the tarmac, and take a dirt road (probably an optimistic term for it), for the 30 km ride to where the walking tour starts towards the caves.

  • Have lunch comprised of cold cuts, salads, bread and cheese, cold beer or soft drink.

  • After lunch, commence 1 hour walk to the entrance of the caves.

  • Spend the afternoon exploring the caves.

DAY 02

chyulu Hill walking hill

  • Explore sections of one of the longest "Lava Tube" caves in the world - Leviathan. These caves, relatively rare worldwide, were formed when molten lava of specific type and viscosity flowed down a slope at a specific angle. The surface layer cooled and solidified, but the lower part, still molten, continued to flow on down. At this point, somewhere up the hillside, a collapse of the surface crust occurred through which air entered, and so, a tube evacuated itself just below the surface.

  • Spend afternoon and the evening down in the caves looking at some of the fascinating formations found therein - Sink holes, lava ropes, stalagmites & stalactites, benches, and of course the secondary, water-formed features.

DAY 03

Hiking walking on chyulu

  • Early morning departure by road to the top of Chyulu Hills after breakfast. 

  • The area is known for superb walking country with gently undulating grasslands, interspersed with dense patches of forest.

  • Possibility of viewing herds of eland, antelope, giraffe, zebra, and wildebeest with slightly lesser chance to see elephant, lion, buffalo, and other game that live in the area.

  • Probable views of Kilimanjaro just 50 km away.
