This active adventure immerses you in the active side of Kenya while leaving plenty of time to view the amazing wildlife for which the country is famous for. It all begins with some exciting white water rafting on the Tana River. In Hell’s Gate National Park we will mountain bike through the sinuous, rocky canyons among wandering giraffe and take a stab at rappelling down some of the canyon walls. We hike the little-known Hell’s Gate Gorge with its colorful layers of rock and sandy river bottom.
On Mt. Longonot we will hike onto the cone of a dormant volcano and near Mt. Suswa we will descend under the earth in ancient lava tubes. Then, we head to the ocean and go snorkeling and dhow sailing. Of course time is devoted to wildlife viewing in the Masai Mara, East Africa’s premier wildlife destination.
Horseback safaris are a great way to experience the Kenyan bush. Kenya has loads of exciting horseback adventures especially in the private ranches for game rides and long distance riding across the Maasai Mara, Meru and Laikipia. It is a perfect experience if you want to truly to be amongst the nature with the added exhilaration of galloping through spectacular landscape.
A more unusual mode of thrill and discovery is a camel trek through the northern part of Kenya. This is a traditional method of traveling used by the nomadic tribes. Taking a camel safari is an extremely unique way to discover more remote parts of Kenya following ancient routes through valleys and arid plains. Camel trekking is especially suitable for bird watching and sceneries. For the adventurous traveller interested in exploring Africa outside of a vehicle, this is the ideal action safari!
Trout fishing at the equator is a truly thrilling experience. The tarns of Mount Kenya and rivers of Aberdare National Parks have plenty of both brown and rainbow trout. The Chania, Gura and Amboni rivers provide excellent angling.
