Our Nairobi Hiking Day Tour Olorngelai Nature Trail begins with a maze of huge rocks that require you to do some easy climbing while ducking under others.
As you climb you will enter a tight crack between 2 parallel rock faces, with a narrow beam of light making it way down through the small opening at the top.
As you move on you will climb past some very smooth faces along the trail that look pretty and are changeling even for experience climbers. One of the highlights of the trail is a narrow ledge with a low roof from an overhanging rock above it.
The only way to cross this is by sliding on your backside to the other end. The sheer drop to the left may be scaring however it’s a short cross before where you get to a point where you can stand up and proceed scrambling on other rocks.
The view of the expansive swamp below is very pretty and impressive once you get high up. The swamp dries up during the dry season however during the rainy season it fills up and becomes a like green carpet stretching in to the distance.
Other attractive and interesting features to see include views of Mt Suswa and Mt Longonot in a distance.
1530 to 1600 Hours: We return back to Nairobi and drop off you off at your residence/ hotel.
