Kenya

  • Dear Bill, may I congratulate you and all your staff who helped in any way in making our holiday to Africa so very special. Everything was amazing. The safari was out of this world, the animals were incredible, so many and so varied, we saw a porcupine and a serval which were firsts for me. The camp was beautiful, far beyond our wildest dreams. The hosts and all their staff were amazing and so friendly. I can’t fault anything, yet again Safari Consultants have come out tops. Many thanks again for everything you have done for us.

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.
