Loita Hills Walking Safaris

Tour Highlights

Set off on walk safari holiday through one of the best wilderness area in Kenya on our 5 days Loita Hills walking safari, an adventure safari that leads you to a region where most traditional Maasai culture exists since this area is often overlook.

This sometimes strenuous, but splendidly rare, donkey-supported 5 days walking safari is like an epic journey over rolling hills, along elephant trails, excellent views down into valleys of extraordinary fauna and flora. Set off moderately and occasionally rigorous four to six hour hikes to predestined fly camping sites for the night under the star lit African skies.

Day 1: Nairobi - Ndarara

On this day you will depart from Nairobi to set off on a 6 days walking safari on the floor of the Great Rift Valley in Loita Hills region. You will abandon the safari vehicles at Maji Moto (hot waters in Swahili) – this is a place where hot spring bubbles out of the earth. A relaxing bath is a must as you visit Ndarara Mayatta for lunch.
Late in the evening reach Ndarara Camp for Dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Ndarara - Letukuyi

After breakfast leave Ndarara for Letukunyi, taking you about 5-6 hours walk through the scattered bushes and exploring the beautiful Loita Hills in the Nguruman Escarpment through the forests where you see striking black and white colombus Monkeys. Occasionally we may see leopard or bushbuck as you visit various 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 at Letukunyi Camp.
