Mount Kenya


... is located in Central Kenya. At 5200m, it is the second highest mountain in Africa, only 700m less than Kilimanjaro.

But where Kilimanjaro offers a non-technical trek to the summit, only serious climbers can attempt the top of this mountain. Trekkers have to make do with a rather lower subsidiary summit.

Back in 1980 the number of climbers on the two mountains was approximately equal. These days the shift towards Kilimanjaro has been almost absolute. This despite the fact that Mount Kenya almost certainly offers a a much diverse mountain experience.

In fact the lack of demand for treks on Mount Kenya means that there is now a real dearth of decent operators, most having long since packed up and headed south of the border. We continued to offer group departure treks on Mount Kenya up to 2005, but there is only so long that you can continue to flog a dead horse, we simply couldn't fill the slots.

These days we only offer specialist tailor-made treks on Mount Kenya and this very rarely. But there are still some good people on the ground who outfit a decent quality trek. It's worth asking if you are really keen.
