Into The Thick of It

July 8 @ 6:00 am - 6:00 pm


Join us as we get ‘into the thick of it’ on a forest Hikeathon through Kinale forest. Known for its floral mosaic where orchids grow in abundance and bamboo stalks due to the area’s high altitude, Kinale is a battlefield of cold weather, high altitude, and thick vegetation. It requires teamwork and precise navigation skills—you blink once and you are lost!
