Mount Kenya Trek


19 September 2020

Further information

An exciting trek of Mount Kenya, summiting Point Lenana, 4985m. The majestic peaks of Mount Kenya are truly amazing, with views of its gleaming snow-licked summits, glacier sculptured valleys and alpine moorland riddled with clear tarns and trout-filled streams. Elephant, giraffe and eland roam its lower slopes, while the stunning vegetation, giant lobelias appear like spiky pokers, have made it a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Our challenge is to reach Point Lenana, at 4985m, the second highest trekking peak in Africa. Some would say it is a more beautiful mountain than Kilimanjaro and away from the busy and well-trodden tourist paths. The Timau route on Mount Kenya wanders through pristine forest and alpine heath land giving an opportunity to experience the unique flora and fauna away from the busy tourist routes.
