After all the time you’ve spent planning and dreaming about going on a safari, this is where it finally starts. Your guide will meet you and explain everything you need to know and answer any questions you might have. On this trip, we seek to explore the lower circuit and hike the Koitabus peak of Mount Elgon. Some of the sites to see are Kitum Caves, Makingeny, Chesurur Falls, and Chepnyalil among others.
Day 1: Nairobi – Mt Elgon National Park
We pick you up from your residence in the morning. After the briefing, our safari departs for Mount Elgon. We arrive in time for check-in at Kapkuro Bandas and relaxation.
Mount Elgon is an extinct shield volcano on the border of Uganda and Kenya, north of Kisumu and west of Kitale. The mountain’s highest point is named wagagai.
You will stay at Kapkuro Bandas with us. It’s an excellent place to stay as you enjoy this leg of your trip. We have dinner and our overnight stay at Kapkuro Bandas.
Day 2: Mt Elgon National Park
We depart from Eldoret early in the morning and head to Mount Elgon using the Kitale route, Chorlim gate. Mount Elgon National Park is one of the few parks in Kenya that allows hiking or trekking.
We will explore the lower circuit; Chesurur Waterfalls, Kitum Caves and Makingeny Caves, the Elephant Platform and a short hike to Endebess Bluff which is approximately 1.6 km uphill. The Endebess Bluff provides a stunning panoramic view of the landscape and the beautiful nature surrounding the mountain. If you’re lucky, you may see elephants before you proceed to the camp.
At 6 pm, you proceed to Kapkuro Bandas, located inside the park, to freshen up and relax. Here, you will also have dinner and your overnight stay.
Day 3: Mt Elgon – Nairobi
Nairobi is your unforgettable getaway to so many Kenyan safaris. Apart from its very own National Park, it promises world-class wildlife-rescue centers and museums, as well as markets, shops, bars, nightclubs, and above all, fine restaurants.
This is when your safari will come to an end. We hope that you’ve had the most wonderful time and that you have seen all the animals you dreamed of seeing, and that you will return home with beautiful memories. We look forward to seeing you.
