Itinerary

  • 1

    Nairobi/Masai Mara Game Reserve- Loita Hills

    Pick up from JKIA upon arrival in the morning and drive down the escarpment. Stop at the observation deck overlooking the Great Rift Valley to enjoy the spectacular view and scenery and then proceed across the Great Rift Valley to the northeast of the Masai Mara National Reserve are the little-known and spellbindingly beautiful Loita Hills.
    The Loita Hills are one of Kenya's last remaining true wilderness areas. The low-lying mountain range is located south of Nairobi and northeast of the Masai Mara. This area is rarely visited and as a result it is widely believed that the most traditional Maasai culture exists here. There are pockets of remote forests, wide open plains surrounded by the stunning hillsides and dotted with roaming wildlife. This isn't an area for viewing big game but more somewhere to enjoy the scenery, walk with the local Maasai and learn more about their culture and communities. Overnight at Maji Moto Eco Camp– Safari tent (LD)
