MOUNT KENYA AT A HIGHER LEVEL
Mount Kenya is the highest mountain in Africa after Kilimanjaro! Whether you are a great climber, and can strategically scale the mountain, or you prefer a lift more help and ease to navigate the around the foot of the mountain: Mount Kenya offers the most beautiful and diverse landscapes. The highest peaks are Batian (5199m), Nelion (5188m) and Point Lenana (4985m). Batian and Nelion can only be reached by very experienced mountaineers while Lenana is the summit reached by most climbers. It’s a three- to five-day climb through both forests and grasslands to an increasingly Bob Ross-like looking environment. As you trudge up, the rocks get higher, and the vegetation becomes less. There are several glaciers on the mountain, Lewis Glacier being the largest and best known. This glacier is visible from the summit of Lenana.
AT THE FOOT OF MOUNT KENYA…

The Ragati River is one of the best fishing spots in Kenya. The ideal habitat for the rainbow trout! From this area, you can continue to the North where there are several National Parks, rich in wildlife. Safari Njema!
