Day 11 Jinja/Eldoret
Today is a bit of a travel day but you won’t mind because you could use the rest, (besides it’s the perfect time to post those Instagram photos that everyone at home is dying to see.) The group will be leaving Uganda and crossing over into Kenya for a night out in Eldoret. Hang out together as a group, maybe grab a drink somewhere and reminisce on the epic(ness) of your trip thus far or maybe take a visit to the Doinyo Lessos Creameries Cheese Factory and stock up on any of the 20 different varieties.
Day 12 Eldoret/Nairobi
After your adventurous experiences yesterday you’ll be glad to have a more low key travel day to replenish your energy before the journey home. So sit back and enjoy the ride as the group transfers through to the Kenyan countryside to Nairobi. We’re thinking naps, story time, and then maybe a mini dance party in the Lando to get you through the day. (Toto’s Africa song anyone?) Tour ends on arrival in Nairobi. Not ready to leave Africa just yet? (Yeah, we don’t blame you) talk with your CEO about extending your adventure and get to know Kenya or beyond!
