The beautiful, snow capped peak of Mount Kenya is the second highest point in Africa . It is a challenging and popular destination for trekkers and climbers alike. At 5199m it's quite a climb but anyone fit can make it and some say it's a more technical climb than Kilimanjaro.

There are three main routes and our expert guides take you along the Sirimon route - the quietest of the three with the most gradual ascent profile and best for acclimatization options. You'll pass beautiful Alpine scenery on the way up and an abundance of wildlife too.
