July 27-29: The Chyulu Plains

The Chyulu Plains

 July 27-29, 2012

We shall camp in the plains below the Chyulu Hills. This is a beautiful, flat area with a few odd trees and low volcanoes on the horizon.

Tents will be set up for us. Dinner and breakfast on Saturday will be served. You only have to carry your sleeping bag and mat and a picnic lunch for Friday.

There will be a walk on Friday afternoon and one on Saturday morning.

On Saturday late morning we shall depart for Loitokitok. It is a colorful Maasai town. We shall walk to a waterfall, look around the market and visit the shop where Hemingway used to take whiskey when he lived in the area. We shall meet the bar owner’s son.

On Sunday after breakfast we shall drive to the Tanzanian border at Rongai. This area has excellent views of Mt Mawenzi, one of the peaks of Mt Kilimanjaro. Actually, Loitokitok has the best views of Kilimanjaro. Lunch is back at our hotel and we depart for Nairobi by 2pm.
