Guided Nature Walk
To really appreciate the wonders of the East African bush, you have to leave the safari vehicle behind; and take a walk. Slow in pace, wide-ranging in scenery and led by your trained safari guide, nature walks are designed to offer gentle exercise and a fascinating insight into the world of African trees, flowers, insects, reptiles, birds and animals.
East Africa is a perfect hiking venue, offering a number of mountain ranges as well as Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro. Popular hiking venues in Kenya are: The Aberdare National Park, Kenya, the Cherangani Hills and the Mathew Range, Mount Elgon, and parts of Tsavo West. Hiking is also popular in all the national parks of Uganda, most particularly in the Ruwenzori Mountains.
Walking and running
Whether you want to walk the high moors of Mount Kenya, the painted deserts of Samburu, or the famed ‘Mountains of the Moon’ in Uganda – we can arrange it. Walks can either be arranged for a few hours… or a few days.
As for running, Kenya is the land of the most famous runners in the world and the venue for some famous marathons, such as the Lewa Marathon, which allows you to run through a pristine wilderness alive with wildlife. Kenya is also home to a famous running school, in the Kenyan runner’s capital, Iten, where you can train for the world marathons alongside Kenya’s gold medal winners.
Kenya is also host to two national parks which allow you to walk without guides – Kenya’s smallest national park, Saiwa Swamp, and Hells Gate, which is also one of the world’s largest natural geothermal fields and immediately adjacent to one of her most beautiful lakes, Lake Naivasha.
