Day 2: Traverse to Lake Naivasha

After an early breakfast, we kick off our Kenya Motorcycle tour, journeying towards Ngong Hills.

Continuing our journey, we proceed to Mara Base Camp for our overnight accommodation. Upon arrival at the park, we have lunch at the lodge before embarking on afternoon game drives in the Masai Mara. Leaving the motorbikes at the camp, we venture into safari 4x4s to explore the park and seek out a variety of wildlife, including lions, leopards, giraffes, wildebeests, elands, cheetahs, and herds of elephants, among others. Following the game drives, we return to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

We traverse the Loita plains, rich in wildlife such as zebras, wildebeest, gazelles, giraffes, and various other animals, birds, and wildlife. Our journey leads us to the shores of Lake Victoria, where we will stay overnight at the Supanova Hotel.

The road from Luanda Kotieno to Kisumu offers stunning scenery, including cultural sites like Kit Mikai. You'll have the opportunity to visit Kenya's most dramatic archaeological site, Kit Mikayi, a vast granite rock tower along the Kisumu-Bondo highway. Kit Mikayi, which means "first wife" in Dholuo, is not named after an actual person but is a significant rock formation with three stone columns, the largest of which towers over 20 meters in height. According to Luo oral tradition, Kit Mikayi is tied to a story and memory. After exploring Kit Mikayi, proceed to Kericho for dinner and overnight stay.

Kericho, known as Tea Country, has positioned Kenya as the world's third-largest tea producer after India and Sri Lanka. The area is characterized by beautiful rolling hills adorned with neat, vibrant green tea bushes stretching as far as the eye can see. The climate in Kericho is ideal for tea cultivation, with rainfall almost every afternoon. The town was named after Ole Kericho, a Maasai Chief who was killed in battle by the Gusii in the 19th Century. You will have the opportunity to visit the tea farms before returning to the hotel for your overnight stay.

It's a pity that it has to end, but this is where your safari will draw to a close. We're sure that you will return home with so many exciting and happy memories, and we hope that you will join us again on safari sometime in the future.

The Climbing Guides and service in both Kenya and Tanzania were super (5+ stars) Kenya Shem, Joxhu, Joseph & Agustin super and thanks. For Kilimanjaro, Deus and Goodlucky were fantastic. However Claudios needs to update the schedule (Lake Nakuru day 7 was canceled) and make available lunches (they were missing on 3 days to and from Nairobi) and make clear when travel will be alone. Finally the Nairobi service agent pushes additional add on Nairobi packages. These are of poor value and should be avoided. These additional package coverage was misleading and I should have avoided completely. This was a Nairobi issue only. Everyone else was above board and super to work with. in summary, the climbs are great and highly recommended. Note the published schedule is not exact and deal with the Nairobi service agent with caution. (Don't take the additional offerings.) Overall it was a very good experience where I met with many great people. Thanks to all.

I had a successful hiking trip with Shem as my chief guide! We were successful in summiting Mt Kenya and came back down via the Chogoria route well! The team worked really well together and communication was professional as well as clear/transparent. I appreciated that every single person in the crew were up to task, responsible, and respectful. Shem, my guide, was very friendly and accomodating to my questions, needs and requests. He was also very kind and encouraging, i.e. encouraging me to walk on my own pace and take breaks while going up and down the mountains and valleys. The team also consisted of a cook, Augustine, and two porters - Joshua and Julius. They all seem to be working as a team really well. Augustine would check on how I feel each day (e.g. stomach and gut health) and he is such a good cook! Joshua and Julius are both quiet, strong and helpful porters. Despite the heavy loads on their backs, they would always have no problem getting to every destination on time (waaaaay earlier than me!). I had a great and memorable time in Mt Kenya. We started off the trek on the last day of 2023 and it was so special welcoming the new year above the clouds! I highly recommend for adventurers out there who are looking for the perfect team to enjoy Mt Kenya with to reach out to these guys! Ask for Shem as the guide -- guarantee that he won't disappoint! 😊

My partner and I had a fantastic experience hiking the Chogoria to Sirimon Mt Kenya route. The full team (Shem the guide, the chef (Gustin) and the Porters (Joshua, Peter, Jackson and Gilbert) were excellent and thoroughly looked after us. We were never hungry and the food was excellent and kept our energy levels up. When we were a little poorly they looked after us. Shem the guide always made sure we were OK, and was great at excellent the plants and sharing information about the surroundings. Would highly recommend this team.
