DAY TOUR AT OLDONYO SABUK

$200.00

Description

Pick up from your Nairobi Hotel. Drive from Nairobi 2 hrs and start walk up Mount Kilimambogo takes a hiker approximately two-three hours to get to the peak. Monkeys and baboons welcome you to the first trail as they chatter to mock your trek up what used to be Lord William Macmillan’s property. Two major paths can be used for hiking: one is a 9km open road that simply winds up the mountain, while the other is a 6km footpath through the forest. The former is a dusty affair in the scorching sun, while the latter provides the ambiance needed for a hiker to conquer themselves: fresh air, cool temperatures, birds chirping, numerous trees and plants species providing the desired canopy.

The trail starts on an easy path before ascending to an uphill of rocks with views traversing to dams, hills, and pineapple farms from a distance. It then briefly connects to the main road before taking another detour into the bush. After one conquers this path, the rest of the journey is accessed via the main road.

Lord William Macmillan wished to be buried on the mountain peak for the love he had for the Buffalo Mountain. Upon his death, his workers tried to fulfill his wish. The Lord William Macmillan gravesite is on the 4.6km stretch to the summit just before you get to the 3.6km signage. Alongside are those of his wife, Lady Lucy, their dog, and that of their worker, Louise.

Communication boosters belonging to Telkom, Delmonte, KBC, Kenya Police, CID, Airtel, Kenya Power and Royal Media are found at the summit indicating the finishing point of this rich, historic Kilimambogo hike. Later begin driving back to Nairobi. Upon arrival drop off at your hotel.
