Oltyiani Walking Trail

Day 1

River Camp

This fantastic walking adventure in the Kenyan wilderness begins with a scheduled flight or a scenic drive from Nairobi. You will be going south towards the Kenya/Tanzania border. Lunch will be a picnic affair. Your Maasai team will be waiting to meet you and you'll make your way to the first camp, River Camp. The camp is all set up for you and a cool drink and hot shower will be waiting. Sundowners are definitely on the menu, followed by a hearty meal. Swap stories around the camp fire and get to know each other before having a good night's sleep in preparation for your walking adventure which begins in earnest tomorrow.

Day 2

Oltyiani Camp

This morning you'll have a gentle start with a hearty breakfast. Afterwards supplies will be packed on the donkeys and they will leave to set up the next camp ahead of your arrival. Then your walking adventure really begins. Leaving River Camp at around 10:00 your destination is the highest point in Loita, Oltyiani. It's a steady walk of five or six hours in total with some beautiful scenery to be admired along the way. There will be a lunch break of about an hour at the halfway point, and once you've had a rest the journey will continue. You should arrive in camp between 16:00 and 17:00, in time to watch the sun set over the magnificent Rift Valley.
