CLIMB TAITA HILLS

The highest, Vuria (2,300 meters above sea level), is easily identified by the mobile phone mast on top. It is possible to drive to this point. Eyale is lower and can only be climbed on foot. Walk through the farmlands and interact with the locals in their daily chores. About 45 minutes of steep walking from where you leave your vehicle, to where the view is panoramic. The vegetation is montane forest and here you can spot the rare Taita Apalis, the Ross Turacos, the Cabanis Greenbul, Syke monkeys among other mammals. Packed picnic meal is provided.
