ARE YOU IN KENYA OR INDONESIA?
The landscape is evergreen, with moist soils and shrubs, which you’ll work your way through with trees towering high above the land. For a split second, you might think you have arrived in Indonesia. As soon as you walk around the corner, you spot the rice fields and women with large baskets on their backs. Nothing could be further from the truth! You are still on the African soil!
HIKING TO VIEWPOINTS
The Taita Hills are a series of mountains in Taita-Taveta. These hills are part of the Eastern Arc Mountains, which extend to Tanzania and stand above the landscape. Whether you are hiking or cycling, we guarantee you a spectacular African view. Strangely enough, hardly anyone knows about this striking, green gem and because of this, you will hardly see any tourists. Make sure you make your stop for the scenic view!
A UNIQUE HOMESTAY
Mama Rose’s house is located at the foot of the Taita hills. She is the definition of a spectacular Kenyan power woman. She opens her household as a homestay, especially for Charlie’s Travellers.
Cooking with her, walking on her shambas, chatting in the kitchen with the whole family and waking up with Kilimanjaro on the horizon, this is all you need to make a great holiday! It’s like having a family away from home.
AFRICA INSIDE OUT: THE TAITA HILLS
Have you ever heard of Taita? No? We understand. Even most Kenyans do not know about this mountain range. For Africa Inside Out project, Charlie and his team of content creators travelled from the relaxed coastal city of Mombasa into the rugged interior! One of the main stops during that journey is the Taita Hills.
