10-Day Majestic Mount Kenya Trekking Adventure


Experience the allure of Africa’s second-highest peak, Mount Kenya, on this transformative 10-day trek. While Everest and Kilimanjaro often steal the limelight, Mount Kenya, with its jagged peaks, shimmering glaciers, and lush bamboo forests, offers a more intimate and untouched experience. As you ascend through varying altitudes, you’ll traverse a mosaic of ecosystems – each an unparalleled spectacle. From dense forests that resonate with the calls of exotic birds to the barren lunar landscape at the summit, this journey is a dance of nature’s contrasts. Beyond the visual splendor, this trek is a testament to endurance and the indomitable human spirit. As you stand atop Point Lenana, Mount Kenya’s highest trekking peak, the sense of accomplishment, combined with panoramic views of the African savannah below, is an unparalleled reward. Come, breathe in the crisp alpine air, tread on ancient trails, and be part of a timeless African narrative.

Safari Tips

Can I combine a safari in Kenya with a beach getaway in Mombasa or Diani?
Absolutely! Kenya offers a unique opportunity to combine thrilling safaris with relaxing beach vacations. After your safari adventure, you can head to coastal towns like Mombasa or Diani Beach, where pristine white sandy beaches and turquoise waters await. You can indulge in activities such as snorkeling, diving, or simply unwinding on the beach, creating a perfect blend of wildlife encounters and beach relaxation.
Are night game drives allowed in Kenyan national parks and reserves?
Night game drives are not permitted within the national parks in Kenya. However, some private conservancies and reserves, like Ol Pejeta Conservancy and Maasai Mara Conservancies, do allow night game drives. This provides an opportunity to see nocturnal animals that are active after sunset, such as hyenas, leopards, and nightjars. Check with your safari operator or specific conservancy for availability and regulations.
What is the Wildebeest Migration in Kenya and when is the best time to witness it?
The Wildebeest Migration is a captivating natural phenomenon that takes place in Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve. Each year, millions of wildebeest, accompanied by zebras and gazelles, migrate from Tanzania's Serengeti National Park to the Maasai Mara in search of fresh grazing lands. The best time to witness this spectacular event is usually from July to October when the herds cross the Mara River, facing thrilling encounters with crocodiles. It's an extraordinary wildlife spectacle that should not be missed if visiting Kenya.
