Fantastic is the word for this mountain range! With the view of snow capped peaks and lush green dense range, it was one of the best expeditions :)

The bad news first: One has to pay entrance either for one day or for four days - no two days, no three days possible. It took me one day to hike from the Met Station (Naro Moro Route) to Pt. Lenana and back to Mackinder's Camp (I am 61 and not a fit youngster). Next morning two and half... More

I think all high mountains have "their heads in the clouds" and can be elusive, but not on this day. We were able to see and photograph the mountain easily.

This review is about the Chogoria-Route, which my friend and I took in November 2014. First of all, I've never been to Kenya (not even Africa) before and I am not a great mountaineer at all, despite coming from a montainous region (Austria). My friend asked me, to join her on this trip and - as I was kind of... More

Just spent 4 awesome days climbing Mount Kenya and hiking in the National Park. Would recommend Duncan Njoroge as your guide, he and his team were fantastic. You can find him at Equitorial Star Adventure Safaris

We took the 4 Day Mt Kenya Sirimon - Chogoria Traverse. Excellent service, professional guide and porters and great food. We are very satisfied from start to end and glad we choosed "go to mount Kenya". Thumbs up!

Went on a 4 night trek up Mount Kenya with Duncan Njoroge (Equatorial Star Adventure a Safaris). He and his team were brilliant: very professional, really knew they're stuff. The Cook was fab! We ate so well! Delicious food. And they were all so nice! Mount Kenya is a must too!

We went with gotomountkenya.com and had an amazing experience. Pre trip: Evans the manager was prompt in replying to email queries and was flexible to our suggestions for possible variations to the trip. We had the flexibility of doing the Chogoria-Sirimon route in 4 or 5 days (we took 4) and were able to decide this while on the mountain.... More

Spectacular Alpine island in the middle of Kenya. What a treat. Well kept park. Clean well-maintained trails and climbing huts.
