Mount Kenya lies in the Mount Kenya National Park which was created in 1949 to protect Mount Kenya and its environment from destruction and development. The Mount Kenya Forest Reserve encircles the national park and the two areas, combined, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Mount Kenya and its three peaks stand a magnificent 5199 m (17,057 feet) above sea level, dominating the view for miles around. It is the second highest mountain in Africa, after Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895m), and was formed hundreds of years ago by a series of volcanic eruptions.
Our guides will lead you up the mountain for you to achieve a summit you’ll never forget. Our staff back at the hotel will celebrate your success with a well-deserved and relaxed beach holiday end to your adventure.
The highest freestanding mountain in the World, one of the most famous summits to be reached and a real challenge. Follow in the footsteps of Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller who first climbed the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in 1889. Challenge the three volcanic cones “Kibo", "Mawenzi", and "Shira" and rise to the top of Africa at 5,895 m above sea level.
Let us help you organise this once in a lifetime journey. Our guides on the mountain and the staff at the hotel will set you up on the perfect trip, from flights to tour essentials and little specials. We also can help with combining the summit with a safari at Amboseli National Park or simply set everything up for a relaxing holiday by the beach after the mountain.
