I'm in Nairobi at the moment shopping around for bikes, and afterwards am planning to cycle through Western Kenya to Lake Victoria, then South through Western Tanzania to Lake Tanganyika where I plan to take the boat down the lake and finally cycle into Malawi sometime in mid-November.
If anyone wants to join, or has any advice on this route i'd be very interested!
The Kenyan leg probably will include (but is not limited to)...
Nairobi - Naivasha - Naivasha NP - Hell's Gate NP - Narok - Lake Victoria - Tanzanian Border
I'm planning to leave Nairobi around the 16th October.

I just checked your website and see that you plan on leaving Nairobi tomorrow, is that still the plan?
Today I arrived to Nairobi and I will take about 5 days rest (with a marathon in between) before heading straight south again. I will cycle down to Arusha - Dodoma - Iringa - Malawi in about two weeks. I guess I will miss you by a week or so. A pity, would have been nice to cycle together in Malawi!

Pity we missed eachother. I'm in Migori now and heading across the border to Musoma, Tanzania tomorrow. I just had an amazing 3 day ride from Nairobi through the masai mara to here. I really recommend it if your plans are flexible. Look it up - the C13 road from Ngorongore to Migori. A+ dirt road cycling!
I'll PM you
