We will pass by the well known Lake Magadi (the Salt Lake) and make a stopover. The Lake is home to Thousands of stunning Flamingoes.
At around 9:15 pm, the famous Ewaso Nyiro River will welcome us with the cool evergreen surroundings. With our skilful driver, we will arrive at Entasopia - the footsteps of Nguruman escarpment at around 9:15pm and in time for the beautiful Moonlight. Dinner and overnight at the Cool Waters Camp. We will provide Tents and Sleeping Bags and we will camp besides the tranquil Ewaso Nyiro River perfect for fishing during the day.

After the Team Dynamics, we will start our Nature Trail/ Hike up the famous Loita Hills which forms a Cardinal Part of the Maasai Mara Ecosystem. The escarpment has an abundance of different bird species and wild animals.
The Turracco, Superb Starling, Common Bulbul, African Pied Wagtail, Colobus Monkeys, Impalas, amongst others are in plenty. Nguruman Escarpment and the Loita Hills are in the Nemengineyo Forest; meaning the forest of the lost Girl. History has it that, a young Maasai Girl went up the Forest to collect firewood never to come back!!
The hike is refreshing and is purposed to bring us intimately closer to nature. We will explore the Loita Hills all the way up to the beautiful waterfalls. It’s so picturesque and guys will get a splendid opportunity to take memorable photos. The waterfalls are a spectacular sight to behold!
On one particular visit, a tourist on seeing the Loita Falls reiterated Dr. Livingstone’s remarks when he first saw the Victoria Falls in Zambia; “Scenes so Lovely, must have been gazed upon by Angels on their Flight”. Loita Hills is untamed wilderness and the wildlife flourishes in its splendor. At 4pm we will begin our descent as we take more scenic photos.
