4 Days Chyulu Walking Safari

Day 1:
We leave Nairobi at 0800 and head south to Kibwezi, where we take a track 35kms into the hills. Another 20kms sees us at the campsite, where we walk to 'Leviathan', one of the world's longest lava tube caves. Here we spend the rest of the day exploring sink holes, lava tubes, stalagmites and stalactites, secondary water features all whilst learning how these fascinating features were formed. In the evening, enjoy a three-course meal before retiring to your sleeping bag where you will be lulled to sleep by 'the sounds of Africa'.

Day 2:
Early morning caving or departure by road for the top of the Chyulus'. Here we walk along the crest of undulating grasslands. Viewing herds of Eland is a common event. As are sightings of giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and sometimes even some of the 'big five'. There are also probable views of Mt Kilimanjaro just 50kms away. Camp is made and dinner served after your walk.

Day 3:
Full day of walking along the crest of the hills

 

Day 4:
Early morning game drive or walk before a late breakfast. We then travel along the crest road and down the western side of the Chyulus' for the drive back to Nairobi before nightfall. This trek through the Aberdare Mountains is a fascinating walk amongst the exotic flora and fauna found above 2500metres.Views of the Rift Valley are breath taking and the experience is made more memorable by camping above the surrounding forests, occasional encounters with big game such as elephant and buffalo, great bush buck and other antelopes.
