Chyulu Hills Walking Safari

Tour Highlights

Chyulu Hills walking safari is stepping to one of Kenya’s most photogenic regions with the backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro to the south. The landscape is breath taking, a truly magical area of ragged craters, rolling grassland, exotic aromatic plants and cedar forests. While on this walking safari holiday in Chyulu feel, smell, touch and see raw nature like never before. Combine the breathtaking volcanic scenery with excellent wildlife watching opportunities on this walking safari.

Day 1

On this day you be picked from your Nairobi hotel and set off for 3 hours journey south to Chyulu Hills National Park arriving in time for lunch. Later on in the afternoon spend time on game drives around the park in search of the Big Five.

Day 2

Explore sections of one of the longest "Lava Tube" caves in the world - Leviathan. These caves, which world-wide, are relatively rare, are thought to have been formed when molten lava, of specific type and viscosity flowed down a slope of 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 enters, and so a tube evacuated itself just below the surface. Afternoon and the evening spent down in the caves looking at some of the fascinating formations found therein - Sink holes, lava ropes, stalagmites and stalactites, benches and of course the secondary, water formed features.

Day 3

After breakfast set off by road and hike to the top of the Chyulu Hills with sweeping views of the area. Superb walking country with gently undulating grasslands, interspersed with dense patches of forest. Possibility of viewing herds of eland and other antelope, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest with slightly lesser chance to see elephant, lion and buffalo and the other game that live in the area. You will be able to view Mt Kilimanjaro just 50 km away. Pitch camp here for the night.

Day 4

Full day of walking

Day 5

On this day before breakfast, head out for an early morning game drive or short walk before returning to camp. Later on you will be transferred back to Nairobi for your trip back home or proceed on with other arrangements.
