Cairo to Nairobi Overview
- 2012-01-01 - 2013-12-31
Tour Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia and Kenya on a trip from Cairo to Nairobi
Travel to Africa and embark on a grand adventure across Africa's north-east from Cairo to Nairobi. Experience the marvels of ancient Egypt and Nubia, the Horn of Africa's deserts and mountains, and the rolling savanna and lush highlands of Kenya. Along the way, encounter friendly Nubian oasis dwellers, Sudanese market vendors, Ethiopian Rastafarians, Kenya's proud Samburu warriors and the rarely visited tribes of the Omo Valley. This is a memorable overland escapade through a very special part of the continent.
Cairo to Nairobi SummaryAdd to Shortlist
A gateway to the Omo Valley, Konso lies in a region on the banks of the Sagan River where local traditions are strongly upheld.
Sitting on the border of Kenya and Ethiopia, Moyale is a market town with a nice atmosphere.
Surrounded by forests, Marsabit is a beautiful town on the extinct volcano of Mount Marsabit.
The Ewaso Ngiro River winds through the sunburnt plains of the Samburu National Reserve, a wonderful place to see an abundance of wild animals and birdlife.
A small market town near the slopes of Mt Kenya, Naro Maru is the perfect base to take on the mountain or explore the nearby Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
Often shrouded in a carpet of pink flamingos, beautiful Lake Nakuru - and the surrounding national park - is home to a great number of wildlife and bird species.
Meaning 'rough water' in Maasai due to the occurrence of sudden storms, Lake Naivasha's surface is also broken by the yawns of hippos and countless birds flying across its surface.
Once a swamp but now called the 'green city in the sun', Nairobi is a relatively multicultural city with a range of cuisines, museums and cultural centres to enjoy.
