Book a Mount Kenya Adventure

The stunning Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest mountain and is home to a fascinating variety of flora, fauna and magical landscapes. Our expedition takes you to the trekkers’ summit: Point Lenana (4,985m).  

Mount Kenya is an extinct volcano with striking rocky summits that rises out of the heart of the Mount Kenya National Park. It has three main peaks: Batian (5,199m), Nelion (5,188m) and Point Lenana (4,985m). Batian and Nelion are technical alpine climbs, but Lenana Peak offers superb trekking routes and is an ideal pre-acclimatisation option for our Mount Kilimanjaro expedition or an adventure on its own. 

The two higher peaks are normaly snow-capped and hold small and fast-receding glaciers, in contrast to the lush terrain on the lower slopes of the mountain.  

You also have the option to reach Mount Kenya’s highest peak (Batian – 5,199m), which involves a long 22-pitch technical climb on summit day.
