Walking Safari on Loita Hills

The Loita Hills are one of Kenya’s last remaining ‘true wilderness’ areas. There are no roads, tracks or footpaths, and the likelihood of our seeing anyone else on the trek is remote. Indeed our only other companions will be the wild game that inhabits the grasslands and montane forests of this remote region. Where appropriate, we will be walking along game trails and in the late afternoons may move from the ridge tops, down into the valley in search of suitable campsites. 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.
