Kenya Cycling Tour

Kenya Cycling Tour

Starting out from Nairobi, we drive out to Hell's Gate National park named after a narrow break in the cliffs, once a tributary of a prehistoric lake that fed early humans in the Rift Valley. Despite its name, it is one of the few parks in Kenya that you can walk or cycle in.

The following day, after some late afternoon riding in Masai land near Nau Nare hills you will arrive to the Masai Mara.

Between July and August each year, literally millions of wildebeest, often aptly termed the "clowns of the African wildlife", head in their droves from the Serengeti in search of fresh grasslands further north towards the Masai Mara in Kenya. The best place from which to view the mass migration is from the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

Description of the National Parks we see

Lake Nakuru Mt Kenya and Aberdares
Known as the 'Bird Watchers Paradise,' at an elevation of 1754 m above sea level, this lake is surrounded by wooded and bushy grassland. The lake's abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. Other birds also flourish in the area, as do warthogs, baboons and other large mammals. Eastern black rhinos and southern white rhinos have also been introduced. The lake's level dropped dramatically in the early 1990s but has since largely recovered. In 2013, the lake received an alarming increase in the water levels that led to the migration of flamingos to Lake Bogoria in search for food supply. Nakuru means 'Dust or Dusty Place' in the Maasai language.

Very different in character to the rest of the country, the lushly vegetated and densely populated central highlands that stretch northward from Nairobi are capped by the hemisphere-straddling Mount Kenya and its permanent equatorial glaciers. Rising to 5,199m, Mount Kenya is the second-tallest in Africa, topped only by Kilimanjaro, and it is linked to the more westerly 3,999m Aberdare Range by an elevated grassy saddle.

Oddly, these two massifs represent extremes of geological antiquity. Where the contorted folds of the Aberdares rank among the most ancient in East Africa, dating to before the Age of Dinosaurs, Mount Kenya is an extinct volcano that erupted into existence several million years after our earliest bipedal ancestors first strode across the Rift Valley floor.
