7 Days-Mount Kenya trekking

Parent Category: Mountain Trekking Category: Mount Kenya Hits: 217

Mt. Kenya is a spectacular climb. As the second highest mountain in Africa at 5199m, it forms a formidable challenge.
This diverse range of vegetation types creates a similarly diverse range of wildlife habitats. The glistening peaks, stunning scenery, breathtaking vistas and cheerful superhuman porters, the sweat and tears that go into a successful trek to the summit is part of the extraordinary and outstanding sense of achievement one experiences while standing on the summit and watching the sun rise over Africa.

Our formula for success is the use of professional guides, well paid porters and crew, going slower, giving enough rest between stages and acclimatization time which also plays a crucial role in mountain climbing overall success. What you eat and where you sleep is also very important. This is well taken care of our crew.
