The Tugen and Cherangani Hills

25 – 28 June (3 nights)

The hills and Kerio valley offer superb scenery. The Tugen range is heavily forested; the Cheranganis are heavily farmed except for the peaks, but both are spectacular. As the end of the rainy season approaches both ranges should be lush and green. The descent into Kerio valley offers breathtaking views. The whole area also has prolific birdlife.

We shall stay at the simple but very nice Sego Club. It has a small pool and a rooftop veranda with 360 degree views of the Tugen hills and the Elgeyo escarpment. We have our sundowners on the rooftop under a tree!
