Mount Kenya is the second highest mountain on the African continent - but without a doubt the most spectacular, steeped as it is in history. Sometimes unfairly thought of as Kilimanjaro’s little brother, Kenya is considered by many to be a more challenging ascent - and a worthy objective for anyone looking to raise funds for their chosen charity.

Its fascinating variety of flora and fauna and outstanding landscape make Mount Kenya one of the world’s most rewarding experiences. As you trek through equatorial rain forest (rich in wildlife, including elephant and waterbuck), across moorlands that hide crystal-clear lakes, and along vast ridges above spectacular gorges, you can begin to imagine yourself alone in a previously undiscovered world.   Situated just a few hundred miles south of the equator, the mountain once reached 7,000m and is thought to have been higher than Kilimanjaro.

Today, heavy erosion caused by ancient glacial activity has produced several jagged, prominent peaks, forming a single mountain. Mount Kenya’s summits consist of two technical climbing peaks and our objective - Point Lenana, a rewarding trekking peak. You will be assisted by our wonderful team of Kenyan guides, porters and cooks who will make you comfortable in an unfamiliar environment, and one of our amazing UK guides will give you the confidence in yourself to stand high on the summit as reward for your efforts an behalf of your charity.

An ascent of Lenana at sunrise rewards us with a clear view over the terrain we have crossed - the forests and heathlands below us, and the stunning spires of Batian and Nelion (5,200m) across the Lewis glacier. On a clear day the summit of Kilimanjaro can be seen, 200 miles away. Mount Kenya’s diversity of habitat, geography and wildlife, coupled with the tough challenge of the ascent, mean that it is an experience that will never be forgotten.
