5 Days Loita Hills – Nguruman Trek.

Day 1: Maji Moto

Drive from Nairobi via Narok to Maji Moto, located in the northern foot of the Loita Hills. Maji Moto means hot water in Kiswahili and steaming spring oozes clear hot water out of the rocks. Afternoon used at leisure, exploring the surroundings, watching the sunset from a hillside view-point. After dusk, you can have a bath in the natural hot water as locals have done from immemorial. Dinner served as campfire chats about the Maasai culture. You will then retire to your tent at will.

Day 2:  Motorok

After an early breakfast, our hike will cover savanna grasslands with views of the magnificent landscape and the traditional Maasai people in the Loita Hill. Over the grassland, you may sight zebra, gazelle, giraffe, gnu, wildebeest, hartebeest, baboons, many species of birds, and more. “Motorok” in Maa dialect means Egyptian goose, which is likely to be seen at the salt lick spring. Overnight camping at Motorok.

Day 3:  Oltulelei

Walking through Maasai land, we pass through the Maasai town of Narosora, an agricultural hub where we will stop to add to our supplies of food and water. We will have lunch along the way and camp overnight at Oltulelei.

Day 4:  Nchorroi

Walking through thick forest and crossing rivers, we enjoy the beauty of the landscape, seeing many birds along the way. We have lunch en route, and camp overnight at Nchorroi.

Day 5:  Nairobi

After rising early to see a beautiful sunrise over the Great Rift Valley, we make a final steep descent to Nguruman village at bottom of the escarpment. We meet our vehicle to return to Nairobi via Lake Magadi.
