Kenya

  • Hi Michele, I have been meaning to write to you since we got home, to THANK YOU for an absolutely wonderful experience. It was quite a complicated itinerary, but the connections and contacts with guides and local representatives was seamless. The tented camps were fantastic, particularly the Kicheche camps due to their location. We were blown away by the level of service, attention to detail and the high quality of the meals provided by the lovely staff at all camps. Islands of Siankaba was also a fantastic change of pace and end to our trip. Our guides were wonderful –  Jackson in Tanzania, Bernard in Rwanda, Peter at Ol Pejeta and George at Mara North. Their easy going personalities and knowledge of their country’s geography, history and wildlife made the trip so much more rewarding than we expected. The access they provided to the wildlife was amazing. Thanks again to you, Josie, Bill, Rob and the team. We had a wonderful trip and would highly recommend Safari Consultants!

Straddling the equator at 5199m, Mount Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa, and offers a much more picturesque climb than more famous Kilimanjaro. Trekkers head for Point Lenana, the third highest peak at 5100m (the highest peaks require technical climbing), up a number of routes on treks lasting between 4 and 7 days, with additional nights either side. The lower slopes are densely forested and home to wide range of wildlife.

Trout fishing is possible on the mountain, whilst for those interested in a closer look without the hardships of trekking, scenic helicopter flights can be arranged.

Other regions to see wildlife include Nairobi National Park (and the Daphne Sheldrick elephant orphanage) on the outskirts of the city, the Kakamega Forest (a key area for anyone keen on birdlife or butterflies), Mount Elgon, Shimba Hills and some areas around Lake Victoria.
