The Great Rift Valley Trek  - Kenya walking safaris Kenya

3 Days Longonot & Hell's Gate Walking safari

We continue down the escarpment to Suswa from where we start our trek through Hells Gate National Park, past herds of Zebras, Kongoni, Giraffe and warthogs. The variety of bird life should not be missed. We get to our camp late in the evening for a hot shower, dinner and overnight. (L,D)
