Welcome to Bata

The city itself, with wide streets and colourful buildings, has a dilapidated colonial charm. Along the beachfront, dusty cranes hover over half-finished hotels and office blocks, acting as poignant reminders of times when oil money and expats flowed in.

Elephant Hill Aberdares Day Hike

The Elephant Hill on the southern end of the Aberdares Ranges, about 90km north of Nairobi, is an ideal location for a day hike especially if you’re preparing for the more challenging Mt Kenya or Mt Kilimanjaro climbs. The Aberdares Ranges are situated west of Mt Kenya in the central highlands between Nyeri and Naivasha, and stretch 70km long from North to South. They are the water catchment area feeding two of the largest dams supplying over 95% of Nairobi’s water needs, i.e. Ndakaini Dam in the Thika region and Sasumua Dam near Njabini town. After enjoying at the top of the hill and conquering the challenge, we will embark on our journey back to Nairobi expected time of arrival is 1830hrs local time.
