Mt Kenya

More...

History

The missionary Johann Ludwig Krapf was the first European to report a sighting of Mount Kenya, in 1849. The first recorded ascent of Mount Kenya was made by Halford Mackinder, C. Ollier and J. Brocherel in 1899. The lower summit, Nelion was first climbed by Eric Shipton in 1929, and Shipton and Bill Tilman completed the traverse of the ridge between the two highest peaks. Point Lenana can be reached by an easy hiking trail.

Safari

After climbing Mt Kenya, we highly recommend making the most of your Kenyan visit by adding on an unforgettable safari.  There are numerous options including the infamous Masai Mara National Park that borders with the Serengeti in Tanzania, the Amboseli National Park located at the foot of Kilimanjaro and Samburu National Park and Lake Nakuru. We can easily arrange anything from a day safari through to a longer itinerary, if you are lucky enough to have time up your sleeve.

Temperatures

Kenya enjoys an equatorial climate with average annual temperatures of about 26 C. There are two rainy seasons on the mountain from April-June and October-December. The mountain is an important water catchment area and many rivers such as the Naro Moru emerge from the melting glaciers.

Food

Food will be of the highest standard possible, given the remoteness of the situation. Please inform us if you have any special dietary requirements.

Clothing & Equipment

Adventure Consultants will supply all group gear (e.g. tents, stoves, utensils etc) whilst expedition members are to provide their own personal clothing, day pack, duffel bag, footwear, climbing harness and sleeping bag. An equipment list will be provided to expedition members upon confirmation of your participation.

Safety, Communications & Insurance

To safeguard members of the expedition we will be carrying a satellite telephone. We require expedition members to carry additional insurance for evacuation and repatriation as well as normal travel medical expenses. We will provide you with expedition insurance advice.
