6 Days Walking tour itinerary for Masai Mara, Nairobi & Narok: Camping Adventure In Majimoto And Loita Hills
Masai Mara, Nairobi, Narok
Get up close and personal with African wildlife on this Loita Hills & Majimoto trekking Safari. Adjacent to Masai Mara game reserve, the trails offer a range of terrain to be explored on foot, accompanied by the Masai Morans. With an intimate knowledge of their surroundings, the local guides ensure that you miss nothing of their rich traditional heritage.
Nairobi - Ndarara
Depart from Nairobi, passing through the Great Rift Valley.
After descending 2,000 ft. to the valley floor studded with volcanic mountains, you begin to see an animal kingdom unrivaled anywhere else in Africa. Masai land is home to huge herds of plains game.
The route then takes visitors up onto the Mau Escarpment through the small trading town of Narok. There will be a stopover for 30 minutes in Narok, before heading South into forested Loita Hills close to the Tanzanian border.
Guests will be dropped off at Maji Moto (meaning 'hot waters' in Swahili), where a hot spring bubbles out of the earth at the foothills. A relaxing bath is a must while visiting Ndarara Mayatta for lunch.
Late in the evening, reach Ndarara Camp for dinner and overnight.
Ndarara - Letukunyi
After breakfast, leave Ndarara for Letukunyi on a 5-6 hour walk through the scattered bushes.
Explore the beautiful Loita Hills in the Nguruman Escarpment, through forests where guests can see striking black and white Columbus monkeys. Occasionally, one may see a leopard or bushbuck as they visit the many secret waterholes. There are also a variety of highland birds to view, such as the turaco, parrot, hornbill, starling, sunbird, and the birds of prey.
Dinner and overnight stay at Letukunyi camp.
Letukunyi - Morijo
