The plan is to visit two parks where elephants and giraffes without parents are rehabilitated, and then returned to a National Park. After lunch at MGH we will continue down to Nakuru in the Rift Valley.
We leave Nairobi and take the old road down to the Rift Valley.The Eastern Rift Valley runs in North-South direction thru Kenya.When travelling from Nairobi to Nakuru we will enter this Rift Valley. The views from the edge looking down into the valley are great, actually the pictures that I have, can in no way describe the amazing scene.
When we return to Nairobi at the end of our stay here,we will take this way uphill. Google Earth view from ground level at the edge looking down over the valley gives a better idea of the view in real life.
Just before we are down at Mai Mahiu market,we pass a small church on the right side. This church was built by Italian POW:s building the road in 1942. (Check the net on Mai Mahiu church) Down in the Rift Valley we pass Naivasha and Gilgil. I have not passed these places so often,maybe 10-15 times,but the hills and valleys look very familiar to me.
The distance Nairobi - Nakuru is 158 km
Arrival at Graceland Hotel in Nakuru, again a nice bed to rest in and a nights sleep. 21:46 10 October 2013 Next is MARALAL
