LOITA HILLS WALK NGURUMAN FOOT WALKS
The Loita Hills are one of Kenya's 'true wilderness' zones. There are no roads, tracks or footpaths, and its rare to see other walkers. The wild game inhabits the grasslands and mountane forests of this remote region. There are no appropriate campsites and tracks so we have to look for our ways and also choose suitable grounds for camping. Nights are generally spent camped next to cool streams that rise in these hills and on leaving the next morning, the only evidence of our passing should be a small circle of ash and a few fire blackened rocks marking the place we had the camp fire and cooked the evening meal.

We start at 2200m for the walk with all our gears and equipments. Our team carries our food and water supplies as we go through the savanna moving up to 2400m. At some point we will enter the "mist forests" of the central area. These forests are sustained by the ability of the trees, bushes, lichens and mosses to extract moisture from the clouds that cloak the whole region most mornings. Underfoot the ground is moist and springy with slowly decaying vegetation, whilst above us, the forest trees provide a haven for monkeys, turaco and other forest birds seen but seldom elsewhere.

The walk is about 45km and on the way we can see the black and white colobus monkey,sykes and vervets monkeys. These primates competes for foods in their big groups and they make noise as we pass along. There are many bird species alike the Crowned Eagles and the smaller species as well.

Mammals also patrols these routes and we may even find the zebras,elephants,and different antelopes.

During the walk, because of the intact virgin nature of the wilderness, we try to take a different route on each expedition. This implies that the terrain conditions are generally unknown and may vary considerably during each day, with good game trails being followed for a couple of hours, succeeded by areas of seemingly impenetrable jungle. Here progress may be difficult with giant nettles, vines and lianas and thorns adding to the challenges of the walk.

Day 1
From Nairobi, a three hour drive westwards, brings us to the township of Narok. Here we will have a snack lunch and a drink before continuing for another two hours to the upper grassland plateau of the Loita Hills. Our walk starts from near the Masaai village of Morijo, and from here we will walk east and then south for about 3 hours till we reach a suitable campsite by a permanent stream. Dinner, as on each subsequent night, will be cooked over an open camp fire.

Day 2
After an early breakfast we cut up the east side of the valley and so into the start of the forests proper. Game trails are followed when ever possible. Note: because we use a different route through the forest each time, the difficulty of the terrain we will be crossing will not be known from one kilometre to the next. This night's camp is made after a long drop into one of the valleys. Alternatively your guide and one volunteer will drop down into the valley to collect the night's water requirements whilst the camp is set up on the ridge top.

Day 3
Still in the forests for a couple of hours, often quite hard going with fewer game trails to follow. By mid morning though, the area should be getting somewhat dryer as we approach the first escarpment dropping down into the Great Rift Valley. Suddenly it's open grasslands and rapidly we descend to the floor of this middle plateau and our camp on the Entosopia River. Good swimming and spectacular views. (usually the same camp for each crossing)

Day 4
Mid morning departure, walking along the edge of the escarpment towards where we will follow an old Land Rover track down to the Rift Valley floor. Vehicles will meet us at a convenient point. The drive back to Nairobi will then take us across soda flats of Lake Magadi, the largest soda lake in the world and so back across the Great Rift to arrive in Nairobi by early evening.

Equipment required by the client is minimal.- Stout walking shoes, socks. T shirt and shorts, long pants and long sleeved shirt, warm jumper and waterproof jacket, bush hat and tooth brush being about all. Please do not bring any scented cosmetics. We provide sleeping mat, bag and tent. All food, and cooking equipment and of course our professional guide/s.

 

Voluntary Works

Kenya has many chances of doing voluntary works. You can join schools, community based organizations, children's homes, hospitals and community clinics. We will engage you with the direct programme in the community where you will live with the locals. Your contribution will make a difference to the community and bring a happy smile to a family and a child.
