Ololoolo Escarpment Hike Expedition

Ololoolo Escarpment Hike Expedition

Ololoolo escarpment forms the western boundary of the Mara triangle running along a geological fault line forming the edge of a granite plateau that rises to a height of 400 meters from the bottom.

 The escarpment receives more rain than the rest of the Mara triangle and lots of fresh water streams radiate from its face disappearing into the ground only to reappear in swamps lower down.  As a result of the rains a growth of thick vegetation is found to be growing along the escarpment    This terrain of the escarpment ranges from rocky crags, boulders strewn slopes and well-watered wetlands.  The icing on the cake has to be the ability to enjoy endless plains of grass of the Mara Plains which are a site to from atop the escarpment.

There are several tracks along the escarpment used by the Germans during WW1. These tracks create an edge for adventure seekers.

The hiking trail starts at the Ngira-re rangers out post(1645m) and gently ascends up for 4 km to a height of 1935m to reach the top (vertical height 290 Metres). The hiking takes 1- 2.5 hours ascending and 1 hour descending.

Masai Village Village

Masai Village Visit

The Maasai are undoubtedly one of the most famous traditional cultures on earth. In fact, the Manyatta are usually a circular encampment of long, low, rounded houses, created by daubing cattle dung over a framework of sticks. Visiting a Manyatta is a good way to learn more about the Maasai culture and everyday life. Many ceremonies involve the ritual slaughter of cattle or goats with meat being distributed among the community, according to social rank.

At other times, live cattle are bled by opening a vein on the neck or flank with the point of an arrow. The blood is collected in a gourd and the wound closed with ashes. Then the blood is either drunk immediately while fresh or mixed with milk. Even at slaughter, blood is collected and mixed with milk to be drunk later. Sour milk is also considered a delicacy.

Poolside Barbeque


Later, by the lodge’s floodlit pool under the vast and starry dome of the African night, enjoy succulent lamb cooked on a spit, chicken and grills, pasta, salads and delicious desserts.

You’ll also experience the sounds of animals in the distant darkness beyond and night birds calling. During this unforgettable meal, you can delight in the relaxing ripple of a poolside stream and an evening breeze that sways the hanging lanterns.
