highlights
  • Scenic walk up to the summit of Mt. Kenya
  • Beautiful peaks and stunning scenery
This program travels the scenic Sirimon route, with some game-viewing and bird watching opportunities along the first day's paths. Then it's up across the Liki and Mackinder's Valleys to Shipton's camp where you can see glistening peaks and stunning scenery.

The Sirimon route is a moderate-strenuous climb but not a technical one and mountain-climbing experience isn't necessary. However, there’s no avoiding the steep ascents and high altitudes that make physical fitness a prerequisite.

You can discover a great deal about yourself through this adventure, but only if the experience is of extremely high quality and professionally organized, which is a part of our specialty.
