Escape modern life by putting one foot in front of the other when you embark on a walking safari following in the footsteps of your Maasai guide swathed in his scarlet shuka. Head off the beaten track into the Loita Hills on the edge of the Great Rift Valley.

Following a private flight to Siana Spring and drive to Loita Hills, northwest of the Masai Mara on the Kenya-Tanzania border, you will arrive at the Forest of the Lost Child.
