Follow in elephants' footsteps as you cycle across Kenyan Maasailand; 150KM of rough terrain and combined inclines greater than Mount Kilimanjaro await!
COCO's Maasai Cycle Challenge provides a physical challenge combined with the opportunity to immerse yourself in Maasai culture and spot East African wildlife.
You will cycle through beautiful sections of the Kenyan Rift Valley, which will provide a stunning backdrop to the challenge. En route you will also be able to visit Maasai Academy to see the impact that your funds have had.
To finish the challenge, you will spend a night sleeping under the stars and awake to a stunning sunrise across Enchorro Naibor.
The challenge is coordinated by Willetts Safaris, an independent organisation offering bespoke bike tours, safaris and walking tours in East Africa.
"The welcome we got from the Maasai people and the wonderful children was amazing. This is the biggest adrenaline rush and good feeling that I have ever experienced and I wish everyone in the world could try this."
- Carsten Staehr, Cintra HR & Payroll Services
"What an incredible experience and such a delight to see the genuine impact that COCO has had on the lives of so many involved in the Maasai Academy and local community. Their heartfelt appreciation and gratitude is self evident and it was a pleasure to be able to play a small part in continuing to develop the project."
- Chris Green, 2016 Participant
