Mount Kenya - Logistics As well as your leader, we'll be supported by local guides, porters and a cook. The porters will carry our communal gear (tents, food etc.) and your personal gear (e.g. sleeping bags, spare footwear) in a duffel bag or rucksack. You'll carry only what you need for each day's trekking in a small rucksack. We need to register with the Park Authority before beginning our trek and need to sign out at the end of the trek. All food on the mountain is provided. Sufficient fresh water will be provided daily to ensure you stay hydrated.
