ITINERARY OF THE 10 DAYS SENIOR WALKING VACATION IN THE RIFT VALLEY & MAASAI MARA (PAGE 1/2)
Day 1. Kenya Adventure Vacation: Nairobi
Arrival at the airport at night and reception by Ontdek Kenya. Transfer from the airport to the Nairobi Safari Club or equivalent hotel in Nairobi.
Day 2. Crescent Island. O/N Lake Naivasha Sawela Lodge
After breakfast there is the briefing by the guide about the program. By 8.30 a.m. we leave Nairobi via the Nakuru road to the Rift valley. The Nairobi - Nakuru road is on a contour along the rim of the Rift valley and on viewpoints we will be able to see our whole route for the next days.
We arrive at the Sawela Lodge, on the shore of Lake Naivasha, in time for lunch. This recently opened lodge has beautiful grounds and lawns.
In the afternoon we do our first African game viewing walk at the privately owned Crescent Island, which is a peninsula on the Eastern shore of Lake Naivasha. There is a lot of easy to see game e.g. giraffes, waterbucks, elands, zebras and impalas. It is also a heaven for birds with +200 species recorded. The walk is gentle and satisfying. We return to the lodge in time for afternoon tea. Today's program should be taken as light as possible to wear off the jet lag.
Day 3.Senior Walking Adventure Hell's Gate National Park. O/N Sawela Lodge
After breakfast we do a short transfer to the gate of the park. This is a unique park where walking is done in the middle of wildlife. Giraffes, zebras, warthogs and many types of gazelles are found here. The first part of this walk is done in typical flat African savanna in a volcanic area with huge rock boundaries. There are camphor and acacia trees all over and this is where to look for the giraffe as they mainly feed on them. A picnic lunch will be at the Rangers post.
The last part of the walk is done in the Hell's Gate Gorge by descending into a steep canyon with running water from geysers and wild vegetation. The climax of the day is in walking in the Side Gorge where the rocks have split to leave only a walking path. We climb back to the rangers post for transfer back to the lodge.
