Mount Kenya

Mount Kenya

From its wooded foothills to its icy summits, Africa’s second highest mountain offers the intrepid trekker sights, experiences and heart-pounding adventures. Starting with invigorating hill walks through upland forests rich with wildlife and moving on to challenging hikes through bamboo forests then upwards and onwards to the boulders of Point Lenana you’re rewarded with world class views all the way. To tackle the assault of granite cliff and volcanic rock towers up to Batian, the highest glacier peak, you’ll need technical experience and good climbing skills. But if you don’t relish the climb you can just visit one of the famous hotels at the mountain base and take in the views, enjoying the fresh air and peaceful ambience of the Kenyan hills.

Mount Kenya Adventure Holidays

Highlights of Mount Kenya

Take a mountain safari holiday: find zebras on the northern slopes, and, deep in the forests, spot monkeys playing in the trees, grazing antelopes (including the rare bono), herds of elephants and buffalo as well as hyenas, servals, leopards and the occasional lion. 

Nature watch: the mountain landscape and climate changes dramatically as you ascend. The mix of rainforest, bamboo, open woodland, scrub and moorland is home to a myriad of birdlife including soaring eagles, the Purple-throated Cuckoo-shrike, Green-backed Heron and the Lammergeier.

Climb high: lesser peaks and glaciers up to Point Lenana can be scaled and walked by anyone who is fit and adventurous. To scale the highest peaks of Nelion and Batian you need considerable technical skills.
