Cycle Through Swara Wildlife Plains


Hi, I am Rakesh and a cycling fanatic hailing from Nairobi. My goal is to give you a different experience of Kenya than the typical safari, as we explore by bicycle.

This fantastic Nairobi cycling tour takes you through the vast Swara Wildlife Sanctuary Planes, 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 other animals in their natural habitat.

Depending on your preference, you can cycle from 15 to 45 km, having beautiful views of 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.

We had a fantastic cycle Safari on the Swara plains! Rakesh picked us up from our hotel promptly, entertaining conversation on the drive to the Swara plains, had our bikes ready and fitted in no time, assigned Patrick as our guide. Patrick made adjustments to the route based on previous days rain had resulted in muddy trails, explained the animals we were likely to see in different areas so we had GoPro and iPhones out, great photo ops. Upon returning, we had a delicious lunch in scenic Swara Acacia Lodge and an equally interesting conversation on the drive back to our hotel. The pre-trip communication was prompt and clear, payments were streamlined. I would highly recommend this guide!


This is a wonderful ride! The routes are relatively easy for all participants. The animals you will meet are most likely giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, and an occasional ostrich. If you are lucky they will be running alongside you over the fields ... which is amazing!! The camp from where you start is a pleasant hangout during the ride (if your offspring and family want to hang out while you grind some km’s). It is situated in the middle of the ride, so even halfway you can check on them when you pass. The coffee, refreshments, and lunch are very good afterward. They have a kid's playground and even accommodation if you intend to stay longer.

About Me

Hi, I am Rakesh. I studied tourism in Nairobi and came up with the idea of organizing cycling trips throughout the country. I developed a love for cycling and tried to create a cycling movement in Nairobi. Besides the cycling trips, I often organize some cycling events on the weekend.
