KENYA: Rift Valley Grand Tour

This program is designed to provide participants with an enjoyable introduction to the diversity of East Africa. The program visit markets, schools, development projects, and archeological sites. There will be numerous opportunities to meet and discuss issues with Kenyans, and the itinerary offers excellent opportunities for photography: including a 7 days of spectacular bicycling in the Great Rift Valley and a 3 day game drive to Masai Mara National Park.

The program is designed by David Mozer, the director of the International Bicycle Fund, an African studies specialist and pioneer of bicycle touring in Africa.

The primary mode of travel will be self-contained bicycling. The cycling difficulty is moderate, averaging 40 miles per day. The route primarily follows low volume paved roads. Lodging is in hotels, comfortable local housing and in tent camps while on safari. All participants receive a comprehensive pre-departure information with detailed instructions on setting up your bicycle and other information for program preparation. Bicycling in Africa is ideal for the good-natured realist who appreciates the rewards that can be gained from the modest rigors of bicycle touring.

Group size is limited to ten people so early sign-up is recommended.
