Day 2: Nairobi to Loita plains

Depart Nairobi and head north-west towards Maasai Mara (approximately 4 hours), arriving in time for lunch. The Loita Hills are one of Kenya's last remaining true wilderness areas. The low-lying mountain range is located south of Nairobi and northeast of the Maasai Mara. This area is rarely visited and as a result it is widely believed that the most traditional Maasai culture exists here. There are pockets of remote forests, wide open plains surrounded by the stunning hillsides and dotted with roaming wildlife. This isn't an area for viewing big game but more somewhere to enjoy the scenery, walk with the local Maasai and learn more about their culture and communities.
