Biking

The Kerio Valley and its surrounding areas are ideal for cycling, whether for high-altitude training or for mountain-biking.

Those wanting only moderate exercise can choose routes on the highlands plateau on a mixture of tarmac and red laterite roads. If they follow the escarpment edge they will be rewarded with spectacular views down into the valley and across to the mountains on the other side.

For those for whom cycling is a more serious business, there is no shortage of challenges. The valley escarpments and the hills rising above the plateau offer very steep climbs and descents.

Serious mountain-biking trips into the Cherangani Hills or up  Mt. Elgon (See "Safaris" page) are possible but need careful advance planning so that food and other essentials are provided for. A limited number of mountain bikes are available for hire at Kerio View.

Location

Kerio View is perched on the edge of the Kerio Valley escarpment -- a branch of the Great Rift Valley of East Africa.It offers prospects of the Tugen Hills and Tiati, the sacred mountain of the Pokot people. Down in the valley, and central to the panoramic view, is Lake Kamnarok, set in the middle of the Rimoi Game Reserve and fed by the waters of the Kerio River.

Attractions Nearby

Rimoi is a new reserve and hardly exploited. It is particularly noted for very wild buffalo and elephant. Visitors have to be accompanied by a Wildlife Department ranger.There are also crocodiles in the river, but they are very wary and shy of people and not always easy to see. Bird life is abundant.
