TheTugen and Cherangani Hills Safari


TheTugen and Cherangani Hills
12 – 16 March
Lying west of Baringo, this is a most beautiful and relatively unknown part of Kenya. There is superb scenery, forested areas, excellent birding, cooler weather because of higher altitude and good tarmac roads.
We shall stay 2 nights at Sego Club, a simple place but from their rooftop terrace you have a grand 360 degree view of the Tugen Hills and a super sunset.
We stay another 2 nights in Iten, the home of many of Kenya’s famous runners. You may even come across some of the runners at the Kerio View hotel. The hotel looks like a Swiss chalet and overlooks the Kerio Valley and Lake Kamnarok. It is also the take off point for international paragliders. Kerio Valley is the best place in Kenya for paragliding.
