Wandare Dash – Oldoinyo Lesatima Second Trail
We immerse ourselves into the Nyandarua magic all over again, this time on a less-frequented gentle trail to the highest point of the third-highest mountain in Kenya, Oldoinyo Lesatima. Our access gate of choice is the Wandare Gate, off the Nyeri-Nyahururu highway near Mweiga.
We begin our expedition by driving 17km into the park, through the dense bamboo forest, to get to the trail starting point in the lower moorland. We then hit the gentle 9km trail through the beautiful-beautiful golden moorland to get to the Oldoinyo Lesatima peak at 4,001m above sea level.
