Mount Kenya

Standing just over (17,000 ft) 5,199m above sea level, Mount Kenya is the second tallest mountain in Africa just marginally eclipsed by Kilimanjaro after. It has three main peaks, Lenana Peak standing at 4985m ASL, Nelion Peak standing at 5188m ASL and Batian peak standing at 5199m ASL.  Mt Kenya is located on the equator, in central Kenya and is an extinct stratovolcano that is thought to have risen over 23,000 ft (6,500m) before it erupted over 3 million years ago. Today, Mount Kenya has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site for its beautiful glaciers, world class flora and fauna and breath-taking views.

Mount Kenya is a gathering of nature’s wonders. Apart from being the second highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kenya holds, at its highest point, one of the world’s rarest sights – equatorial snow. For centuries this glacier phenomenon has puzzled scientists as it has awed climbers.

Documentary evidence indicates that the first successful climber to conquer Mount Kenya was Sir Halford John Mackinder. Sir Halford was an English geographer who led an expedition that made the first ascent of Mount Kenya in 1899.
Climbing to 5,199 meters, the scenery surrounding this designated World Heritage Site is breath-taking. It is pristine wilderness with lakes, tarns, glaciers, dense forest, mineral springs and a selection of rare and endangered species of animals, high altitude adapted plains game and unique montane and alpine vegetation.

Visitors can enjoy mountain climbing, camping and caving with the mountain’s rugged glacier-clad peaks providing the perfect backdrop.
