DESCRIPTION

Hi, I am Rakesh and a fanatic cyclist from Nairobi. My goal is to give you a different experience of Kenia than the standard safaris. View Kenia from a bicycle.

This wonderful cycling trip takes you through the vast planes of Swara Wildlife sanctuary, just a 50 minute drive outside Nairobi. During your cycling trip you will have the chance to see zebras, giraffes, wildebeests, antelopes, ostriches and many more. All in their natural habitat.

Depending on your preference you can cycle from 15 to 45 km (2-5 hours) having wonderful views on the Lukenya hills and plains. If you are not a cyclist I can also arrange a game walk. On the way we will stop for a wild picnic taking in the stunning environment.

If you wish we can arrange transportation for you.

For groups of around 20 people transportation is included.

If you come by public transport or by taxi this is the direction: Swara Plains Conservancy is along Mombasa road, approximately 35km from Nairobi, around Lukenya Hills.

From Nairobi, drive on Mombasa road past the Daystar University turn off (on your left) and take the next right turn at Small World Country Club. Drive on that dirt for about 1km till you get to the Swara Plains Gate. You will be given an entry permit. Tell them you're going to Acacia Camp. It's 3km further in.

Price includes:

  • Meals
  • Guide
  • Conservation fees
  • Drinking water
  • Bike hire

Meet Rakesh

Hi, I am Rakesh. I studied Tourism in Nairobi and by accident invented the idea of organizing cycling trips through the country. I developed a love for cycling and try to create a cycling movement in Nairobi. Besides the cycling trips I often organize some cycling events in the weekend. People even now started cycling together frequently in their neighborhood without me organizing it.


Location


This is a wonderful ride! The routes are relatively easy for all participants. The animals you will meet (no, no lions or other cats & dangerous creatures) are most likely giraffe, zebra, wildebeast and an occasional osterich. If you are lucky they will be running alongside you over the fields …. which is amazing!! The camp from were you start is a pleasant hangout during the ride (if your offspring and family wants to hang out while you grind some km’s). It is situated in the middle of the ride, so even half way you can check on them when you pass. The coffee, refreshments and lunch are very good afterwards. They have a kids playground and even accommodation if you intend to stay longer.
