We will leave the capital city and travel north with a brief stopover at the Mai Mahiu Great Rift Valley View point before getting to Mt Suswa.

Mt. Suswa is a wonderful extinct volcano and one of the most stunning mountains found in the Rift Valley. It has a unique double crater volcano with a shield-shaped cone covering an area of about 270km2 a vast network of obsidian caves and a variety of plants and wild animals. Mount Suswa is unusual as it has two craters, one inside the larger Caldera.

Its inner volcano called Ol Doinyo Nyokie by the local Maasai rises to an altitude of 2,356m (7,730 ft) above sea level at its summit formed as it was by incremental flows of pumice and lava. The inner crater, about 5km across is covered by a forest that is also home to Leopards, Hyenas, Buffalos, Zebras, Antelopes and other wildlife. By a twist of nature, this inner collapse formed a moat-like trench surrounding a central island in the crater creating a breath-taking view that has to be seen to be believed. The outer crater estimated at about 10km in diameter is currently dotted with Maasai homesteads. The Maasai graze their livestock on the outer crater and the slopes of the inner volcano and harvest water for their domestic use from the numerous springs spouting steam and hot water in this area.

After enjoying your picnic lunch and conquering the challenge, we will embark on our journey back to Nairobi expected time of arrival is 1830hrs local time.
