From the edges of Ngong Hills (Kona Baridi) to the bottom of the Rift Valley (Lake Magadi) over a stretch of 80km, your bicycle shall take you through Maasai countryside; wild, shrubby and expansive savannah. Spin your wheels across the winding Magadi road to an oasis of cooling swimming pools by the day and warming, therapeutic hot springs for the evening.
Camp the night under the starry African night. Breezy as it will be, enjoy the warmth of the bonfire, sample some Maasai-style barbecue and maybe join in the Maasai dancers’ jubilant jumps. Come morning, trade your two wheels for the millipede of a vehicle (the train) and enjoy a game drive like no other.
