Rid out of the cultural camp into the Massi Mara plains and up into the Loita Hills Start ride. Today you will ride between 60-70km, keep your eyes pealed for the plains game (Giraffe, Zebra, Impala etc). Today you will do a little dirt road and simple single track riding. Arrive into camp set up camp, and relax around the camp fire listening to the sounds of Africa. (all meals and snacks)
An early start so we can be on our way before the sun gets too hot. Today you will ride 80km out of the Loita Plains and into the greater Mara. The closer we get to the park the more animals we should see. Arrive camp and again help set up and get organised. Another large campfire. (all meals)
Today we spend in the mara on game drives to see some of the bigger animals.
Another early start today will be a spectacular ride. Approx.40-50Km riding. We will challenge you a little with some technical single track riding (do not worry by now you will be comfortable on your bike) We will be heading deeper into the heart of the Mara. Keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife. Another night camping. (all meals)
