Torosei Trek

  • Walking at Torosei with Donkeys
    (this trek/safari can be run for 4 – 6 days depending on the interest(s) of the participants. We would suggest at least 2 full days at Torosei. One/ two days below can also be spent climbing one/two of the rolling hills that we see while walking in this area. It is interesting to note that Torosei is unspoilt, unpolluted, very few people/vehicles and no telephone contact with the rest of the world). 


    This morning we pick up from your Nairobi hotel and drive to Torosei (approx. 170 km) in Kajiado County in the heart of Maasai land. Picnic lunch enroute. Arrive early evening at Tinkoy camp site at Esonorowua. We will take a short evening walk to view the sunset then return to the camp for dinner and overnight.
