Trek Mount Kenya

Mount Kenya is Kenya's highest mountain and Africa's second highest after Kilimanjaro. A mountain of three peaks, Point Lenana is the highest accessible to trekkers at 4,985 metres. This trek affords fantastic views and stunning scenery, including waterfalls, glaciers and rock pinnacles, on a variety of routes. Mount Kenya is situated about 200 km northeast of the capital, Nairobi.

We offer two trek options, including the shortest way to the peak - the Naro Moru route - and the longer combination of the Sirimon and Chogoria routes, ascending and descending on different sides of the mountain. Please do speak to us though if you are interested in any other variation and we will do our best to assist with your request.

Your trek is operated by one of our partners in Nairobi. They have a long history of running treks and tours in Kenya and employ local guides and porters with a wealth of knowledge on the mountain to lead the treks. Pre and post trek accommodation is arranged at a permanent tented eco camp in the beautiful suburb of Langata.

Added security

Absolute Africa ensures that anyone who climbs with us is covered for their entire trek by AMREF, who operate specialist medical evacuation with advanced life support ambulances, paramedics and air rescue. This service is additional and does not replace your travel insurance. For further details go to
