ENJOY THE MAJESTY OF THE AFRICAN BUSH FROM THE BACK OF A HORSE, BUT SPEND EACH NIGHT IN THE COMFORT OF A LODGE
A flight from Nairobi to Lewa Downs, to be collected by Lewa Wilderness and spend two nights on Lewa enjoying everything that the Conservancy has to offer.
After an early breakfast set out across the northern valleys of Lewa and onto Il Ngwesi. A very dramatic ride with plenty of wildlife, massive views and rocky roads, but fast in places. Picnic en route. Arrive at Il Ngwesi in the early evening.
Spend two nights at Il Ngwesi Lodge, visiting the Cultural Boma and walking with trained guides through their rhino sanctuary. Wild dog are often sighted.
A shortish ride to Tassia across the elephant filled plains. An opportunity to see large numbers of giraffe and grevy zebra as well as lesser kudu and gerenuk, finally skirting around the elephant in the dry river beds before lunching at Tassia. The two days at Tassia can be filled with cultural activities such as visiting the blacksmiths making spears for the local tribesmen, the beading ladies making fashionable items for the overseas market and an opportunity to practice spearthrowing and archery with the Tassia guides. The horses are also there, making early morning canters in the river beds essential!
The ride to Borana begins after a mini breakfast at Tassia. Up and up we go through the Mukogodo Forest, the largest indigenous dryland forest in Kenya, with the Hartlaub’s Turaco flying above along with many other species of bird and butterfly.
Arrive at Borana Lodge after picnicing under the olive trees. Two nights at Borana for wallowing in comfort, walking with rangers, looking for lions and galloping on the hills.
