This is one of the most fascinating but lesser known parts of Kenya. On this 4-night trip we head beyond Nakuru towards the Tugen Hills. Parts of the hills are heavily forested. The road then plunges towards Kerio Valley, giving magnificent views. The valley includes Lake Kamnarok, Rimoi Park, Chebloch Gorge and Torok Falls. The dramatic Elgeyo Escarpment is on our left as we climb into the Cherangani Hills, home of many of Kenya’s marathon and middle distance runners. Kerio Valley may not have much game but it has a superb birdlife.
In Iten, we shall stay at Kerio View Hotel. This is a Swiss chalet-style hotel overlooking Kerio Valley. Kerio Valley is the best place in Kenya for this sport. It is also the hotel where the famous runners stay. St Patrick’s School in Iten has produced a stream of famous runners.
