The 70 mile drive to Kericho will take us just north of the Njoro National Park. Mount Mau is in this region and stands proudly at 10,000 feet. We will pass through two larger villages, Memegai and Lumbwa in our approach from the north.
Kericho lies within the highlands region of Kenya, just west of the Kenyan Rift Valley and about 60 miles north of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Kericho is located on the main roadway that connects the central region of Kenya with the southwest section of the country. Since I hunt often in this area of Kenya, I have traveled through Kericho many times in my years in the safari business.
I have known Dr. Jacob Longo for probably eight years. He is well known in this area of Kenya for his expertise regarding game capture and game management.
