Our Journey Path (As featured in Globe Trekker)
Our journey starts in Hell’s Gate National Park, before heading into the tribal lands of the North. After tracking lions in Laikipia, we take in the majestic view of the Rift Valley, and then go on safari in the Masai Mara. We then visit the capital Nairobi, before heading to the coast where we end our journey in the exotic Arab port of Lamu.
On The Road
If you are travelling alone in Kenya, why don’t you do as the locals do and hitch, it’s relatively safe, but make sure you keep your wits about you, and make sure you negotiate a price at the beginning, because you might not be in for a free ride.
The Matatus is a baby coach, the only form of public transport in the north of Kenya. Not quite like the luxury coaches from the west, but it is multi-coloured, so it’s Kenya’s own magic bus.
With such difficult terrain and such vast distances to cover, Kenyans are rarely far from an airstrip, however makeshift they may be. It’s well worth taking at least one internal flight as Kenya is a place you need to see from the sky, especially around the National Parks.
