The marathon will take place right in the heart of the forest, curtain raised by the fighting bulls of Western Kenya early that morning. This will be the place for you to taste Luhya foods that you rarely find in the city, as we fuel your body for the grand duel, THE FAMOUS MULEMBE NGHT, live in the heart of Kakamega Forest, sponsored by Royal Media Services.

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.

Nature Kenya invites you to their sixth annual Charity Golf Tournament, Lungs for Kenya, that will be held on Friday 20th March, 2015, starting at 12 noon at Karen Country Club.
• Ksh. 1,500 – Nature Kenya member
• Ksh. 2, 000 – Non Nature Kenya member.
Teams can also be entered for Ksh 8,000. Tee off time starts at 12:00 noon.
The proceeds from the tournament will help Nature Kenya raise awareness of Kenya’s valuable ecosystems, and empower local communities to take the lead in their conservation.
In the five years Nature Kenya has been held the above tournament, the proceeds have been hugely successful in helping them to improve the lives of communities and conserve ecosystems in a number of locations across the country.
The proceeds of the 2014 tournament were used in planting 75,000 tree seedlings in the vulnerable Dakatcha woodland, an important Bird Area near Malindi and assisted communities living near Arabuko-Sokoke and Dakatcha to establish and manage tree nurseries as part of the forest rehabilitation programme.
This success story has only been possible through the kind support of individual like you. Please this time round consider supporting this conservation work as you enjoy the game of golf.
Donations towards the golf tournament are also welcomed. Find more info. here
