Day 1 Nalemoru Gate - Simba Camp

Distance: 8km. Altitude: 2000m - 2650m.

The first day was quite hot and sunny, but we managed to be shaded by the trees for the most part. Starting the Rongai route, you pass by the sign with all the points to remember. To be honest, I didn’t read one. I took a photo with the intention of zooming in and reading it later. Never actually got around to it though. All I bothered to remember was “pole pole” and drink loads of water.
