Chyullu Walking Safaris - Tsavo West

Day 1 Walking safari on Chyulu
Depart Nairobi around 0800, for the 3 hours drive down the Mombasa road to Kibwezi. Here we will leave the tarmac, and take a dirt road, (probably an optimistic term for it), for the 30 km to where we start walking to the caves. Sumptuous lunch is served and later in the afternoon an hours walk to the entrance of the caves. Afternoon spent exploring.


Day 2 Chyulu walking hill
Explore sections of one of the longest "Lava Tube" caves in the world - Leviathan. These caves, relatively rare worldwide, were formed when molten lava, of specific type and viscosity flowed down a slope of a specific angle. The surface layer cooled and solidified, but the lower part, still molten, continued to flow on down. At this point, somewhere up the hillside a collapse of the surface crust occurred through which air enters, and so a tube evacuated itself just below the surface. Afternoon and the evening spent down in the caves looking at some of the fascinating formations found therein - Sink holes, lava ropes, stalagmites and stalactites, benches and of course the secondary, water formed features.


Day 3 Safari walking on chyulu
Early morning departure by road for the top of the Chyulu Hills after breakfast. Superb walking country with gently undulating grasslands, interspersed with dense patches of forest. Possibility of viewing herds of eland and other antelope, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest with slightly lesser chance to see elephant, lion and buffalo and the other game that live in the area. Probable views of Kilimanjaro just 50 km away. Night will be spent along the crest. Probably cool and windy with low cloud in the early morning. (Therefore warm sleeping bag comes in handy).


Day 4 Chyulu Hills safari walk
Full day of guided walks with our experienced English speaking guide. All meals and overnight back at the camp.


Day 5 Walking safari on chyulu hills
Early morning game drive or short walk before a late breakfast / early lunch. It's then along the crest road and down the western side of the hills for the drive back to Nairobi arriving before nightfall.
We have various options of an extra day on the itinerary or less depending on the groups travelling.
Itinerary may be varied from 3 - 7 or more days and is often combined with a visit to Tsavo / Amboseli National Parks .
