We did a 5 day trek up Mt Kenya with Adventure Kenya going up the Sirimon route and down the Chogoria route. We were very happy with our experience with Adventure Kenya Safaris. Chris and Mary in the office were very responsive to our emails to organise the tour before hand. We had an excellent main guide, Wilson, who is very experienced, having been guiding up the mountain for many years. Our porter/guide Sammy who lead us on some of the routes was also very good - friendly and knowledgeable. There was a second porter, Samwell and cook, Moses, all of whom were cheerful and made us feel welcome. You can do the trip in 4 days, but we were glad to have the extra aclimitisation day on the 3rd day before going up, you just do a short hike that day but if you are at all worried about altitude effects it is better, as I had a headache the night before and think it would have been much more difficult to do the summit without aclimitising. Summit day is long (set off at 3am, arrive at sunrise at 6 and then another 9 hours after that) but very much worth it, with wonderful views and sense of achievement. There is also great scenery on the way down on the Chogoria route. We stayed in the huts along the way, which are mostly bunk beds, quite basic/cold except for the final bandas which are relative luxury, but all part of the experience. There were just two of us with our guides and originally we wanted to see if we could join up with other travellers in one group, which wasn't possible in the end due to dates, but the huts were quite full with others doing the same route so it feels like you are sharing the experience/challenge with others. Overall the trip was very well organised. Do not skimp on getting a hat and warm gloves as it is very cold at the top on summit day! Our guide got them for us, along with sleeping bags, at no extra price.

I did a combined tour starting with 3 days Masai Mara. Driver/guide Albert was very pleasant, a skilled driver (very important) and knowledgeable in the park and wildlife. Keen on giving us great sightings we saw many animals incl migration of wildebeest and the big five. It was great value for money, with decent tented camp, good food and each day a game drive, arriving as far as the Mara river the 2nd day After the safari, the next day with guide Wilson, 2nd guide Antony and cook Moses we went to do Mt Kenya, Sirimon in and Chogoria out, incl.1.acclimatisation day. This was fantastic. Wilson is a friendly, skilled guide with good pace. Antony is a great organizer and guide too and Moses a great cook. Together they made me reach the top of Lenana peak. Lovely sunrise above the clouds, specatcular scenery. If you have chance take this extra day and use Chogoria route out, Gorges valley is breathtaking. Will be back some next time! Thanks all for this adventure. I recommend Chris and this company for its value for money and also for the flexibility as without much ado I could switch the two around, due to bad weather at Mt Kenya, which was a great choice.

A fantastic trip with my friend from the UK. Wilson was a good safe guide who successfully took us to the summit. Anthony was a great porter and waiter who couldn’t do enough to help us and always with a smile. Moses cooked amazing food. Chris is very organised. Always responded quickly to emails and was helpful prior to the trip. A totally reliable company to book a Mt Kenya trip with. Chris made us a fantastic free photo book at the end with our photos which is a super memory of out time on Mt Kenya. Thank you very much to Adventure Kenya Safaris.

In short: great company, everything went fine, we made it up to both summits and had really awesome guides and phantastic cooks.I made the 14 days hiking tour, Mt. Kenia and Kilimandjaro, starting in Nairobi. Our group was only constiting of two people, and we met together in the hotel. The Hotel Kenya Comfort Hotel in Nairobi is located very central and you have all shopping possibilities and restaurants just around the corner. Just make sure not to have a room direct in front of the pub on the other side of the street. The rooms are ok, all clean but simple, it's a 2 star hotel, so don't expect too much, hot shower (really, really the best thing you can after the summit climbing is taking a long hot shower) , the breakfast buffet ist really nice and the people are very friendly and helpful. The hikes in Kenia and Tanzania were just so phantastic, great guides, cooks and porters. I really loved it. Everything was well organized, the food was the best and the tents and sleeping bags were warm enough and good. The guides Wil take care of you not to dehydrate and make sure that you drink enough and get enough to eat. The transfer after Mt. Kenia, from Nairobi to Moshi for Kilimandjaro was really long with the public bus, but after a long transfer of nearly long 9 hours, we made it to the hotel. Thank you for everything. I enjoyed my trip a lot and made some great pictures. Thanks especially to Chris for the organisation. I would book a tour again.Philipp

You don't go to the top of mountain , somebody guide and take you there ..... and thats what Adventure Kenya Safaris did to me .... Climbing Kilimanjaro was not an easy task for me because i am a full time desk employee and not exposed to mountains much ... But Chris whom i contacted had helped me a lot right from preparing me to taking me to the summit and then taking me to the jungles of Masai Mara .... I can't recommend any other company and person more for Kenya and Tanzania adventure , be it Nairobi tour , Masai Mara or Kili .... very economical , value for money and very genuine people and now my friend ... if life give me a chance i will trek either Meru or Kenya with them again ..... All the support member for trek and safari were very nice , food was awesome ..... Oh i miss my trek and Africa .....
