Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail
Eburru Forest | My first training trip for the Pacific Crest Trail
Finally, it was time to head off on my first training trip for the Pacific Crest Trail next April and true to form; this would be a rather extreme outdoor adventure in Eburru Forest. I wanted to use this experience in Eburru Forest to gauge how unprepared I was for the task ahead, and it did not disappoint with challenging trekking and some very wild camping.

Starting from the beautiful Lake Naivasha Guesthouse, I was accompanied by a local hunter named Solomon who proceeded to take us into the absolute middle of nowhere on his trusty motorbike. Luscious, dense and especially green, Eburru Forest was the perfect start in terms of training for the PCT in 2018 and this remote jungle in the heart of rural Kenya was a wild camping experience to remember.
