Cycle Kenya


8 days


5 days







We will meet our group and Action Challenge staff at the airport and check in together before boarding our flight to Kenya. Upon arrival, we will embark on our transfer to our comfortable hotel on the outskirts of Nairobi.

Day 2 - cycle day 1

We have an early breakfast at 7 am before we embark on our 4-hour transfer, to just south of Narok in the Maasai Mara. This is where our bikes will be ready and waiting. After a bike fitting and briefing, we will set off on a great introductory ride on good, tarred roads into the Maasai lands. Our first day of cycling will finish at our comfortable safari-tented camp. Once we have checked into our accommodation for the evening, we will enjoy a group evening meal before getting some much-needed rest, and falling asleep to the sound of the African bush.

Day 3 - cycle day 2

After breakfast, cycle day two will commence. Our ride today starts early, as although it is a shorter distance, we are mainly on African dirt roads which will be a much tougher challenge to cycle on. We keep our eyes peeled today as there is a good possibility of seeing a great range of safari animals including giraffes, wildebeests, buffalo, elephants, gazelle, zebra, and other foragers and grazers that roam the savannah plains. We will be making our way around part of the Loita Hills in the Siana Conservancy, which is the predominant home to some herds of wildebeests and zebra. It will be strenuous, but worth every minute for the stunning scenery. We will then stop at an appropriate time of the day for lunch and a rest. Our ride will continue into the afternoon until we reach the village of Oloolamuitia. This is extremely close to where we find our tented camp, to end at the southern tip of the Maasai Mara close to the border with Tanzania. Once settled in, we will have a chance to relax before enjoying an evening meal and getting some well-earned sleep.

Day 4 - cycle day 3

The day will start with an early breakfast before we set off for another exciting day of cycling. After a small climb this morning, the rest of our ride is mainly downhill as we cross back through this famous Safari section taking in river crossings and cycling along smooth gravel roads. The route incorporates highlights of a Maasai Village, and if we are lucky, we should be able to see hippos in their natural habitat. We will arrive in Talek in time to enjoy lunch, and the opportunity to relax and recover. This afternoon will be kept free to enjoy at your leisure or you may wish to take an optional afternoon safari to experience the incredible animal life of the area. The evening will conclude with a group dinner before getting some much-needed rest. Hopefully, we can expect to fall asleep to the sounds of African wildlife.

Day 5 - cycle day 4

Cycle day 4 will commence after another group breakfast. Today, we have a big ride on dirt roads as we cross over two conservancies – The Olara Olek and the Mara North Conservancy to arrive at Mara Rianta. This will hopefully be one of the best days for animal sightings, with everyone keeping their eyes peeled for a glimpse of an elephant. Please be aware that we will have a support team for full protection. The animal sightings we will experience are jaw-dropping, but we don’t want to disrupt them in their natural habitat. At around midday, we will stop to soak up the scenery and enjoy some lunch. Our ride will resume post-lunch until we eventually reach our accommodation for the evening. The evening will conclude with a group dinner before getting some well-earned rest.

Day 6 - cycle day 5

Today is the final cycling day of the challenge. Following breakfast, we will set off directly from the hotel on a ride that will take us on a 60km loop. We will immediately cross the Mara River, whose origin starts in the Kenyan Highlands and flows 395km into Lake Victoria. Our big challenge today is the steep 250m climb onto the great Mara North, with its amazing views back down over this incredible Maasai ecosystem. We will then continue cycling through the stunning Oloisukut Conservancy. Along the route, we will stop for a rest and to enjoy some lunch before continuing into the afternoon. As the sun begins to set, we will arrive at our accommodation and have some time to relax before preparing for our celebratory evening. Tonight, we can enjoy the hospitality of the hosts and with a special meal together, appreciate a drink (or two) as we reflect on our incredible achievements. We will then end our evening with some much-needed sleep in this comfortable accommodation.

Day 7

This will be our final day in beautiful Kenya. For those who are able or who wish to, there will be a pre-sunrise Safari included to hopefully catch a glimpse of the predators on their morning hunt for food. A truly once-in-a-lifetime experience! The group will have some free time to relax and soak up the surroundings. After we check out of the lodge, we will be transferring 5-6 hrs by road back to Nairobi. Upon arrival at the airport, we will check in for our return flight back to the UK.
