For months I have wanted to try out a Quad bike….But where?? I have heard of places in Nairobi where you can bike in Ngong Forest but I haven’t tried it yet. As part of our road trip, I discovered a new-ish Lodge at Lake Elementaita that has Quad Bikes; Sirville Lodge (Click to check out their Facebook page). It’s right on the Lake, with a lovely view; we were there at about sunset. I can’t speak to the accommodation or food..yet 😉
Paps & Bro
View on the Lake
- Details: They had 2 Quad bikes when we visited (Dec 2016).
- Location: It is right on Lake Elementaita and the map available on google maps is rather accurate. There is also a good amount of signage, so don’t worry, you aren’t likely to get lost.
- Price: 500 Ksh per 30 minutes (Prices may change, this was our experience at the time).
- Other: You aren’t allowed to ride after sunset, for your security, so make sure you get there early enough in the day…first come first served.
Paps to Bro, ‘Let me show you how this is done..’
Me and Pap
We arrived a little late so we were only able to ride down to the lake and back, then had a drink by the lake side, at sunset. Definitely a recommendable experience!

When you spend so much time in Nairobi constantly staring at the backside of cars in traffic, you can forget how beautiful and serene parts of our country are. Not even an hour outside Nairobi, is the Great Rift Valley Viewpoint.
Mount Longonot from the Viewpoint
In addition to the lovely view, there are several shops selling gifts and souvenirs, you can get yourself something memorable. In the future, I would also come out here for a picnic or just to be out of the city for a few hours/minutes. There are some more isolated areas where you can be undisturbed and still enjoy the viewpoint.

My dear Padre
It’s a nice stopover spot, and there are public toilets available for free 😉 (Carry your own toilet paper). It is very windy so make sure to carry a jumper or something (unless you, like my brother think you are immune to cold).
This was the first stop of our Family Christmas road trip…Where to next? Gilgil? Lake Elementaita? Naivasha? Hell’s Gate?…
