Trek the Maasai Mara in Kenya
Solo adventurers and families (age 14+) alike are all welcome to join us as we discover the incredible wildlife and culture of the Maasai Mara in Kenya’s Rift Valley.
Starting off with a game walk and boat ride in the Lake Naivasha, we’ll spot an amazing variety of the wildlife Kenya is renowned for, including zebras, giraffes, hippos and loads more.
Then we take to the hills with the incredible Maasai people and become immersed in their beautiful way of life, camping in the Loita Hills and the awesome Maji Moto Cultural Camp.
As if our challenge could get any better, we also get to visit a wonderful school in the Maasai Mara and end the adventure with a visit to two incredible animal sanctuaries: the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant orphanage and The Giraffe Centre rescue and rehabilitation centre for giraffes.
Both these charities do wonders to protect and rehabilitate the critically endangered animals and would make perfect choices as the charity you fundraise for (optional).
This is a great trek for someone new to trekking, families that want to trek together, or those more interested in the cultural experience rather than the sweat! There are 3 days of activity with only one possibly being a bit more testing with around 6 hours on foot that day. Elevation gain and the terrain will be light. Temperatures can be quite warm in Kenya but the more active day is in cooler higher areas.
