The Twin Peaks tour starts and ends in Nairobi. The Twin Peaks is a trekking tour that takes 15 days taking you through Nairobi, Kenya and other destinations in Kenya.

Ascend remote routes on Mt Kenya and Mt Kilimanjaro. An ascent on the remote routes of Mt Kenya and Mt Kilimanjaro will appeal to the seasoned trekker intent on climbing Africa’s famous Twin Peaks while also appreciating the prolific wildlife and rich diversity of flora for which this region is renowned. Our traverse of Mt Kenya ascends via the lesser known Chogoria Route with fine alpine walking that ensures we are well prepared for an exhilarating circuit of the summit peaks including Point Lenana (4985m). Transferring to Tanzania we prepare for our climb on Kilimanjaro (5985m), fondly known as Kili. We aim to climb the remote and challenging Shira Route following less well-defined trails through dense forest to moorlands characterised by giant lobelia. From the wilderness of the Shira Plateau we start our route underneath the Southern ice fields until we reach to the summit of Kilimanjaro and savour one of the best sunrises in the world.

“The Twin Peaks trip was an amazing adventure which combined the famous Kilimanjaro and beautiful Mt Kenya in one big trip. We had the most amazing time, awesome crew, wonderful like-minded travellers and good food. The weather was perfect in January and we had clear blue skies on both summit days. A trip to remember!”
